  Range verification in proton beam therapy through prompt gamma-ray imaging
  Dr M Taylor, Prof R Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. The beauty of proton therapy over x-ray therapy is that the majority of protons stop within the patient. The problem lies in the fact that we cannot tell, with a great degree of accuracy, exactly where they stop !.
  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.
  Dissecting the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  The regulation of Staphylococcus aureus cell division
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staphylococcus aureus is a major human pathogen causing significant death and disease around the world. The problem is exacerbated by the spread of antibiotic resistant strains.
  The role of protein turnover in bacterial life and death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of protein levels in bacterial cells is essential for their growth and survival. This is an interplay between protein synthesis and turnover.
  Analysis of the role of Hypoxia Inducibe Factor pathway in radioprotection
  Dr F Van Eeden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) is highly important in human health and disease, as is testified by the 2019 Nobel prize for Medicine or Physiology.
  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer arises from the transformation of mammary epithelial cells. In the healthy tissue, these grow as a single monolayer of cells delimiting an internal hollow lumen 2.
  Investigating the mechanobiological mechanisms of cancer
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is the second-leading cause for death globally and there is a high demand for novel approaches to understand and treat cancer.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  Understanding the role of DRAM in infection and autophagy-related disease
  Dr J King, Dr P Elks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular degradation by lysosomes is important in a wide range of diseases. The capture and degradation of cytoplasmic components by autophagy allows tumour cells to survive starvation and neurons to remove the protein aggregates associated with neurodegeneration.
  Watching cancer metastasise live and investigating the underlying mechanisms
  Dr K Campbell, Dr M J P Simons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer metastasis accounts for around 90% of cancer deaths. While the survival rate has been improved over the years through early diagnosis, limited progress has been made in the targeting of metastasis.
