  Regulation of apoptosis-induced compensatory cell proliferation and its implications for cancer and tissue regeneration
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In multi-cellular organisms, coordinated cell death (e.g. apoptosis) and cell replacement is critical for tissue recovery in response to stress or damage.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  An AI-based digital pathology platform
  Dr A Shenfield, Prof C Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Preoperative chemotherapy is used to treat patients with high-risk breast cancers – such as locally advanced breast cancer or breast cancers with clinically aggressive tumours – to reduce the size of the primary tumour and facilitate surgery and/or radiation treatment.
  Dissecting novel mechanisms of cysteine protease biology in tumourigenesis
  Dr R Burden, Prof C Scott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteases are known for their role in facilitating tumour development, primarily through processes such as proliferation and invasion.
  Long-acting drug delivery from intravaginal rings for treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia
  Prof K Malcolm, Dr P Boyd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on our world-renowned expertise in vaginal drug delivery, the aim of this project is to develop a long-acting vaginal ring device for treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.
  Peptide hydrogels as novel nanotherapeutic delivery agents enhancing the anti-tumour efficacy of radiotherapy
  Dr J Coulter, Dr G Laverty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a pressing clinical need for effective localised cancer treatments. Addressing this need we will develop a novel drug delivery system comprised of a nanoparticle/drug releasing hydrogel implant.
  Personalised Medicine for Breast and Ovarian Cancer
  Dr N Buckley, Dr H McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One in two people will develop cancer in their lifetime and it is a leading cause of death. While significant progress has been made in the treatment of some cancers, there still remain some forms of the disease with limited treatment options and poor outcome.
  To develop an allosteric inhibitor of HDAC6 inhibition in cancer
  Dr F Furlong, Dr I Tikhonova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The HDAC6 protein is upregulated in cancer and associated with increased proliferation and metastasis. Several HDAC6 inhibitors have been developed and are in clinical trials.
  USP17 as a cancer therapeutic target
  Dr J Burrows
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

USP17 is over-expressed in a range of primary tumours including NSCLC, breast, colorectal, cervical, ovarian and osteosarcoma and its depletion has been shown to block the growth of cells from all these cancer types.
