  Targeting ERK5 to enhance the DNA damage response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy
  Dr K Finegan, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

ERK5 is a signalling protein that enables cells to transduce extracellular signals into responses. It is expressed in all tissues and is up-regulated in tumours.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Determining clinically significant early stage lung cancers from image analysis
  Dr W.H. Nailon
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisors. Dr Iain Philipps, Dr Duncan Mclaren & Dr Stephen Harrow. Background. Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) is an image guided radiotherapy technique, used to deliver a curative treatment for early stage lung cancer.
  FLASH VHEE Radiotherapy: A Potential New Paradigm in Cancer Treatment
  Dr M Merchant, Dr S Sheehy, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Location. The successful applicant will have the opportunity of spending 2 years at the University of Manchester and one year at the University of Melbourne (Australia) –anticipated start 9/2020.
  Targeting cellular metabolism to enhance radiotherapy response in KRAS mutant NSCLC
  Research Group: Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology
  Dr K Butterworth, Dr E Kerr
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A Post-graduate research position is available in the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology at Queen’s University Belfast. The research project will involve investigations into the the role cellular metabolism on radiotherapy response in KRAS mutant lung cancer.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Activation of Aurora Kinase A by DNA damage – understanding the signalling pathway to improve radiotherapy response
  Dr H Bryant, Prof C Eyers, Prof P Eyers
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation is a mainstay of cancer therapy, however radioresistance is a significant challenge in the treatment of locally advanced, recurrent and metastatic cancers.
  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.
  Pre-clinical investigations of POLQ inhibitors
  Dr G Higgins, Prof T Humphrey
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. The aim of our research is to improve radiotherapy for cancer patients by making tumour cells more sensitive to radiation without affecting the sensitivity of normal cells.
  Ubiquitin signalling in the pathogenesis and therapy of glioblastoma
  Dr V D'Angiolella, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Glioblastoma, the most common primary brain tumor in adults accounts for more than 4000 deaths every year in the UK.
  Releasing the cell cycle arrest with PROTACs to enhance DNA-damaging therapies

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Studentships of the North West Cancer Research (NWCR) Centre. The NWCR Centre comprises a network research groups from across the NW of England who work on basic and translational aspects of cancer biology.
  Releasing the cell cycle arrest with PROTACs to enhance DNA-damaging therapies

Funding Type

  Discovery of chemical and biological tools to probe hypoxic solid tumours
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr J Elies Gomez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells. One avenue towards the development of more selective cancer therapies is to exploit the unique physiological properties of solid tumours using prodrug approaches.
  Sensitizing Head and Neck Cancer to ionising radiation by targeting PARP enzymes
  Dr G Grundy
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Head and Neck Cancer (HNC) describes cancers effecting the lining of the mouth, nose and throat, salivary glands and thyroid. In the UK around 12,000 cases of Head and Neck Cancer are diagnosed each year and it is a particular challenge in North West regions where incidence is over 3 times the national average.
