  Defining the immune cells which best fight cancer
  Prof D Davis
Application Deadline: 4 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arguably, immune therapies for cancer are at a tipping point. The success of therapies for some patients with some types of cancer has made it clear that immunotherapies can work.
  Exploiting tumour-promoting paracrine signals in solid cancers to turbocharge genetically redirected T cells
  Dr A Hurlstone, Prof R Edmondson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adoptive cell therapy (ACT) using tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) or genetically redirected T cells are some of the most promising approaches to emerge recently for the treatment of metastatic disease.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  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.
  Proteomic analyses of adhesion signalling in cancer
  Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Why adhesion? Cell surface adhesion receptors play key roles in the control of cell movement, survival, division and differentiation.
  Proteomic and mass spectrometric analysis of disease progression in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia
  Prof A D Whetton, Dr Andrew Pierce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute myeloid leukaemia is a disease where unfortunately outcomes have improved little in the recent past and new approaches are required in treatment of the disease.
  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.
  Targeting ERK5 to enhance the DNA damage response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy
  Dr K Finegan, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ERK5 is a signalling protein that enables cells to transduce extracellular signals into responses. It is expressed in all tissues and is up-regulated in tumours.
  The role of cell adhesion proteins in healthy and cancerous epithelial cells
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof D R Garrod
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells’ ability to properly communicate with its environment is fundamental for the healthy development of individual organisms.
