  The mechanism of DNA organisation mediated by cohesion and condensin
  Dr B Hu, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA of all organisms must be compacted in order to store a large amount of genetic information in one cell. Compaction must be regulated to allow access of DNA replication or transcription machinery, but to enable suitable condensation for effective chromosome segregation into two daughter cells at mitosis.
  Telomere integrity: How do Replication Factor C-like complexes maintain telomere length?
  Dr T Kubota, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres, the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, play an essential role in protecting linear DNA from degradation. Derailed telomere regulation causes genome instability and has been implicated in increased rates of cellular senescence and many diseases, including cancer.
  DNA repair fidelity, radiosensitivity and cancer.
  Prof T Humphrey, Dr V D'Angiolella
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. With almost half of all cancer patients receiving radiotherapy, tumour-specific radiosensitization remains an important goal for cancer research.
  The role of the AXL Receptor Tyrosine Kinase in the DNA damage response
  Prof A Giaccia, Prof E Hammond
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. The Axl receptor tyrosine kinase is a critical driver of tumour progression and drug resistance, and has resulted in combining Axl inhibitors with both targeted and cytotoxic therapies.
  Cancer evolution: Genomics of the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma
  Dr E Hollox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer genome sequences show that cancer is a highly heterogeneous disease, with each patient having a unique mutational profile.
