  Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment
  Dr E Valleley, Dr L Coletta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC).
  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.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Connecting Molecular Profiles to Phenotype: A Proteomic Resource for Assigning Cell Cycle and Senescent States
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr T Ly, Dr A Lindqvist
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A hallmark of cancer is aberrant cell cycle control leading to pathological cell proliferation. Cell cycle progression is controlled by key kinases, such as cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) and polo-like kinases (PLKs).
  The role of extracellular vesicles and glycosylation in breast cancer metastasis
  Prof D Carter, Prof S Brooks
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biomedical and Medical Sciences. 3 Year, full-time PhD studentship.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Identification of pathways deregulating neuronal ELAV/Hu RNA binding proteins and alternative splicing in neurodegeneration
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr M Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ELAV/Hu proteins comprise a family of highly conserved neuronal RNA binding proteins important for the development of the nervous system and for neuronal functions.
  Releasing the cell cycle arrest with PROTACs to enhance DNA-damaging therapies

  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.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  The functional characterization of the tumour suppressor gene CSMD1 in breast cancer
  Dr S Bell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

CUB and Sushi multiple domains protein 1 (CSMD1) maps to 8p23, a region deleted in many cancers including breast cancer. Our previous work has established that CSMD1 is an independent prognostic marker in ductal breast cancer, with reduced expression associated with high tumour grade and poor survival1.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  Diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in lung cancer
  Dr D CL Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of my research laboratory is to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer through multi-disciplinary research that translates results between the laboratory and the clinic.
  Identification of key determinants affecting the quality of human Cancer specific cytotoxic T cells
  Prof T Dong
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective of my group’s research is to focus on the functional aspects of the antigen specific T cells and study the factors affecting Cytotoxic T cells in controlling cancer development.
