  Use of highly multi-modal PET and MRI data as a predictive biomarker of the site of recurrence in neuro-oncology
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Prof A Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary brain tumour including glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive and most common form in adults, continue to have a socioeconomic impact that is disproportionate to the tumour frequency due to our inability to obtain a cure in the vast majority of adult sufferers.
  Duocarmycin prodrugs to treat breast cancer: single-agent and combination therapy efficacy in 2D and 3D cancer models
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

DNA damage response (DDR) and repair play critical roles in influencing the efficiency and sensitivity of many cancer treatments.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development and application of fast Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging methods for neuro-chemical profiling
  Prof J Schneider, Prof S Short
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

While Magnetic Resonance Imaging is well established to assess anatomy, structure and function in patients and in animal models of human disease alike, (routine) MR Spectroscopy tools to investigate metabolic alterations are far less common.

THE PROJECT. With almost half of all cancer patients receiving radiotherapy, tumour-specific radiosensitization remains an important goal for cancer research.
  Investigating how cells repair DNA damage during mitosis
  Dr A Blackford, Dr D Clynes
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA damage poses a serious threat to proper chromosome segregation during cell division, and if repaired incorrectly can cause cell death or cancer.
  MROnics used in MR Linac applications
  Prof F Van den Heuvel, Dr S Vinko
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

HE PROJECT. The advent of clinically implemented MR Linacs generates an excess of available imaging data. This can be leveraged to predict the outcome of the treatment and provide valuable information in a biological adaptation of a patients’ treatment.
