  Precision Medicine DTP - Proteomic analysis of FAK function in human pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Large-Scale Data-Driven Lung Cancer Diagnostics using Time-Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy (TRFS)
  Dr S Seth, Dr KD Dhaliwal, Dr M Khadem
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pulmonary nodules are common, often incidental, findings on chest CT scans. The investigation of pulmonary nodules is, however, time-consuming and often leads to protracted follow-up with ongoing radiological surveillance.
  Single-molecule fluorescence-activated cell sorting (smFACS): sorting cells molecule by molecule
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr A Ponjavic
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop a novel microfluidic device that can characterise and sort cells, with unprecedented (single-molecule) sensitivity.
  In Silico design and chemoenzymatic synthesis of bioactive cyclic and stapled peptides
  Dr W Houssen, Dr S Dall'Angelo, Dr G S Bewick
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic and modified cyclic peptides are very appealing scaffolds especially as therapeutics with several examples reach the clinic e.g.
  Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression
  Dr D Blažek, Assoc Prof Z Zdráhal, Dr P Alexiou
Application Deadline: 18 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CDK11 is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues and the CDK11 null mouse is lethal at an early stage of development indicating an important role for Cdk11 in the adult as well as during development.
  BBSRC MIBTP: Transcriptional regulators of gene expression in human cells
  Dr P Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to uncover novel roles for transcriptional factors and to investigate how mRNA processing alters gene expression in human cells.
  Raman and Fluorescence Signals for Clinical Optical Imaging
  Dr R.K Henderson, Dr N Finlayson
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC IRC Proteus (Proteus) - Multiplexed ’Touch and Tell’ Optical Molecular Sensing and Imaging - Lifetime and Beyond” is an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration between the Universities of Edinburgh, Bath, Heriot Watt, Durham and Dundee.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  Translating epigenetic control into novel cancer therapeutics
  Prof N La Thangue, Prof D Kerr
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. The retinoblastoma protein pRb is a key tumour suppressor that governs fundamental mechanisms in the G1 to S phase transition of the cell cycle.
  Non-invasive Mapping of Oxygen Extraction Fraction in Patients with Breast Cancer: Development of Novel Multi-Parametric Relaxometry Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Methods
  Dr J He, Dr Y Masannat, Prof D Lurie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate, optimise and extend quantitative oxygen extraction fraction mapping based on oxygen enriched air inspiration and magnetic resonance (MR) relaxometric imaging for human application.
  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.
  Computational systems biology of B-cell lymphoma
  Dr SA Mitchell, Prof C Pepper
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

A 3-year funded PhD studentship is available in the College of Health and Life Sciences at Brunel University London. Project description.
  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.
  Porosity tailored titanium scaffolds for bone engineering
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Replacing a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, long-lasting and economic manner is the main motivation of this study.
