  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating the metabolic alterations that initiate pre-neoplastic development in zebrafish and in humans
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr Y Feng, Dr K Burgess, Dr R Burchmore, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. “Warburg metabolism” is characterised by an increased uptake of glucose and its conversion to lactate by glycolysis under normoxia.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Understanding drug-resistance in myeloid cancer
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The impact of virus-specific neutralizing antibodies on oncolytic virus-mediated anti-tumour immune responses
  Dr E Iiett, Dr F Errington-Mais
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Initially developed as cytotoxic agents, the anti-tumour properties of oncolytic viruses (OV) are now known to be largely immune-mediated.
  Inflammation in the tumour microenvironment
  Dr E Parkes, Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. A key part of tackling cancer is understanding the tumour microenvironment, in particular the immune microenvironment.
  Investigating the regulation of the RNA modifying enzyme ADAR1 and how it regulates other biological pathways and diseases
  Dr M O'Connell, Dr L Keegan
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ADAR enzymes convert adenosine into inosine in dsRNA. Inosine is one of the most abundant and best studied modifications found in different classes of RNA.

  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).

  Dr Y Feng, Dr L Schumacher
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mechanisms that modulate the pre-neoplastic stage of tumourigenesis in vivo are largely unknown due to the lack of suitable animal models.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Stromal transcriptomic signatures in prostate cancer metastasis and hormone therapy resistance
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Reproductive Health
  Dr B Qian, Prof H Y Leung, Dr A Sims, Prof P Wiklund
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020
