  Molecular mechanisms regulating the developmental plasticity of pancreatic cancer cells #NDORMS-2020/6
  Dr S Pauklin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic cancers are among the most lethal malignancies in human due to highly metastatic characteristics and the poor responsiveness to currently used cancer therapeutics.
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
  Watching the Hippo pathway in real time in growing organs
  Dr K. Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  An intelligent scheme to identify novel drug targets through analysing the DNA repairome in drug resistant cancer?
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Prof C Parris
Applications accepted all year round

  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Potential therapeutic effects of natural products in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical cancers
  Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women worldwide. Infection caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), especially type 16 and 18 are implicated in the etiology of most cervical cancers.
  Origins and fate of clonal expansions of cancer driver in human colon
  Dr D Winton
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The non-transformed colonic epithelium acquires significant mutational burden with age, including many cancer drivers.
  Regulation of genome stability and human disease
  Dr I Ahel
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs) are the major family of enzymes that synthesize an abundant posttranslational protein modification called ADP-ribosylation.
  Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) as a novel cancer biomarker and target for chemotherapy
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr P Coussons, Dr C Pike
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
