  Cutting off the fuel supply to starve cancer: Identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer
  Dr K Brown, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A universal characteristic of all cancer cells is the reprogramming of cell metabolism to provide the energy and building blocks necessary to support proliferation and survival.
  Defining the role of p53 in cancer immunotherapy
  Prof Y. Haupt, Dr S. Haupt, Dr P. Neeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite clear evidence of an association between the tumour suppressor p53 and immunity, a gap in knowledge exists regarding its role in modulating immune responses, or its value in predicting patient responses to immunotherapy.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Metabolic reprogramming and chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment options for the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) subtype of breast cancer are limited to conventional chemotherapy agents.
  The endosomal network in health and disease
  Prof P J Cullen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 25% of the human genome encodes for integral membrane proteins (around 5,500 proteins). Efficient intracellular transport of these proteins, and associated proteins and lipids (together termed ‘cargos’), is essential for organelle biogenesis, maintenance, and quality control.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS

Funding Type

PhD Type

Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
  Understanding the role of HoxA9 in chemotherapy resistance of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
  Dr M Esposito
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare but yet deadly form of blood cancer. Genome-wide expression arrays and RNA sequencing have contributed to unravelling the leukaemia signature genes.
  PhD Project related to Spatial Proteomics of Protein quality control or Single Cell Gene Expression Dynamics
  Prof M Knop
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project topic. Protein homeostasis involves control over spatio-temporal distribution of each individual protein species inside a cell.
  Evaluating novel bioactive materials for bone cancer treatment
  Dr RA Martin
Application Deadline: 15 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Survival for bone cancer patients is poor despite the aggressive combined use of surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiotherapy. If the cancer recurs at the original site prognosis is extremely poor.
