  High-throughput mechanobiology
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Cancer research has traditionally focused upon extra- or intra-cellular biochemical signals, and their relation to cancer development and metastasis.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Determining the translational potential of the highly phosphorylated proto-oncogene PBF
  Dr V Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to translate the many molecular alterations now detectable in human tumours into effective clinical management we need to fully understand their impact on tumour biology.

  Novel bone-targeted therapy for treatment against dormant myeloma cells
  Dr M Lawson, Dr A Chantry
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of differentiated B-lymphocytes (plasma cells) that grow in the bone marrow. Despite the development and use of more effective drugs in the treatment of myeloma it remains an incurable disease, given that current treatment regimens are not able to eradicate all tumour cells.
  Novel niclosamide-bisphosphonate vectors as bone-targeted therapy for multiple myeloma
  Dr M Lawson, Dr A Chantry
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type
