  Microtubule motors in cell migration and integrin trafficking
  Prof V Allan, Prof P Woodman, Dr P Caswell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration is vital for the development and health of multicellular organisms. However, enhanced cell migration is also a hallmark of cancer cells, and contributes greatly to metastasis.
  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.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  Using convolutional neural networks to distinguish between autophagy and related processes
  Dr R Beale
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Rupert Beale’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  Preparing the acid bath: how epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) controls its own down-regulation
  Prof P Woodman, Dr C Francavilla
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling by cell surface receptors determines nearly every aspect of the cell’s response to its environment. Endosomes are hubs for regulating these signalling pathways.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  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

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Covalent Inhibition of the Anti-Apoptotic Protein Mcl1 as a Route to Therapy in Sarcoma
  Dr D Mann, Prof A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance to apoptosis is a common feature of cancer, often achieved through over-expression of anti-apoptotic proteins of the Bcl-2 family [Hata et al 2015].
  Characterisation and preclinical evaluation of a fibroblast-activating protein (FAP) targeted TRUCK CAR T-cell therapy for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM)
  Dr A Klampatsa, Prof A Melcher, Prof C Isacke
Application Deadline: 17 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. We are committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission—to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
