  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
  Intronic gene silencing: new mechanism of gene expression regulation and its relevance to cancer
  Dr M Gullerova
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammalian cells employ small RNAs (sRNAs) molecules to regulate gene expression in a pathway known as RNA interference (RNAi). Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) are essential for translation but also serve as a source for tRNA-derived small RNAs (tsRNAs).
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  The role of long noncoding RNAs in cell division and genome stability
  Dr L Stojic, Dr S McClelland
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group studies the biology of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and their roles in cell division and maintenance of genome stability.
  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.
  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.
  Stress regulation of protein translation: role in cancer and neurodegeneration
  Dr A J Whitmarsh, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are subjected to a range of stresses that include physical injury, changes in oxygen levels or temperature, nutrient deprivation, radiation and infection.
  Non-coding RNA regulation of stem cells
  Dr S Brown, Dr P Gokhale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the potential to make any cell type in the Human body and are powerful tools in drug discovery (Xia and Wong, 2012).
  Syndecan-4 regulates cell migration during healing and cancer through caveolar endocytosis
  Dr M Bass
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell migration during wound healing or cancer cell invasion involves responses to multiple factors including extracellular matrix and growth factors.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
