  Defined outcomes from chaotic directions – The influence of random nanoscale mechanical stress on cancer cell behaviour and drug resistance
  Dr M Zelzer, Dr A Piccinini
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite you to apply for an exciting opportunity for a fully funded PhD project at the interface of material science, engineering, cancer cell biology and mathematic modelling.
  Understanding the health behaviour behind GP help-seeking with potential cancer symptoms.
  Prof P Murchie, Dr D Powell, Dr R Vieira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project.
  Developing, piloting and evaluating a theoretical-based intervention to support endocrine therapy medication taking behaviour in women with stage I-III breast cancer
  Prof K Bennett, Dr C Cahir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Almost 3,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually in Ireland. In women with hormone-responsive early breast cancer, 5-10 years of endocrine therapy is recommended to prevent breast cancer recurrence and mortality, with a reduction in cancer recurrence of up to 50%.
  Dynamic interplay of cell shape and tumour evolution
  Dr F Spill, Prof I Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour cells are long known to appear in vastly diverse shapes, both across patients and within a single tumour. This is in stark contrast to the regularity of cell shapes of healthy epithelial tissues from which most tumours originate.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
  Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) as a novel cancer biomarker and target for chemotherapy
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr P Coussons, Dr C Pike
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Help-seeking for symptoms of cancer among black and minority ethnic (BME) people in the UK
  Prof B Grunfeld
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is sustained evidence for enduring racial and ethnic disparities in health status and outcomes (Mayberry et al., 2000).
  Role of CAF metabolism in ovarian cancer
  Dr S Zanivan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High grade serous (HGS) ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological disease. While initial response to treatment is promising, the majority of patients develop resistance to chemotherapy.
  The role of mitochondrial DNA-containing exosomes in communication between tumour cells and the immune system during breast cancer metastasis
  Prof J C Norman, Dr E Roberts
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be conducted in the laboratories of Prof. Jim Norman and Dr. Ed Roberts, and will address how communication between breast tumours and the immune system can influence metastasis.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Stopping bone metastasis in its tracks: Targeting glycan sugar groups to improve early diagnosis and prevent/inhibit the spread of prostate cancer to bone
  Dr J Munkley, Dr N Wang
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy in men, claiming over 350,000 lives worldwide annually. More than 80% of men with advanced prostate cancer will develop painful and incurable bone metastasis.
  Clinically relevant mini-organs to identify optimal “chemo”-free treatments for childhood cancer Phase I trials (ref: RDF20/APP/PAL)
  Dr D Pal
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Better cancer therapeutics are urgently needed to maximise patient outcome. Cancer drug development is associated with the highest attrition rates thereby underscoring the immediate requirement for improved preclinical models.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  RNA Methylation in normal and malignant blood development
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case with DNA and histones, RNA can also be modified and indeed more than 100 chemical groups that decorate all four canonical RNA nucleotides have been described.
