  The role of the microenvironment in regulating breast cancer metastatic colonisation
  Dr R Clarke, Dr Ciara O'Brien, Dr R Eyre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The metastatic spread of breast cancer cells and their colonisation of important organs is the cause of death in 95% of breast cancer.
  Understanding mechanisms of Notch regulation and misregulation in endocytic pathway
  Dr M Baron, Dr R Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Notch is a developmental signalling receptor with widespread and important roles in metazoan development and also in adult stem cell regulation.
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
  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.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  What is the best way for healthcare professionals to communicate changes in estimated risk of breast cancer?
  Prof D French, Prof G Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Risk estimation models for common multifactorial diseases such as breast cancer are often used, e.g. in Family History Clinics to inform decisions about prevention options.
  What is the significance of MCT1 distribution to a novel subcellular location (nucleus) for cancer progression?
  Dr A Latif, Prof K Williams, Dr A Hurlstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MCT1 is a transmembrane protein involved in cell metabolism and mediates transport of monocarboxylates (such as pyruvate {a metabolic substrate} and lactate {a metabolic by product}) in and out of the cell.
