Cancer is responsible for >25% of deaths in the UK and according to current projections, around 50% of people born after 1960 will develop the disease.
  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.
  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.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Multi-modality image registration (NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Prof S Marshall
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. An EngD project involving Gabriel Reines March completed in September 2019. The purpose of this project is to continue the work in multi-modality image registration through to a validation stage.
  (EPSRC DTP) Image translation using multichannel generative adversarial networks for automatic tumour delineation
  Dr M Taylor, Dr C Rose, Dr D Cobben
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inter-observer error in tumour delineation is a significant source of uncertainty in the cancer patient pathway. Presently, the individual practice of the observing clinician dictates the treatment plan.
  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.
  An intelligent scheme to identify novel drug targets through analysing the DNA repairome in drug resistant cancer?
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Prof C Parris
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.
  Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents
  Dr Y Mehellou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although cancer therapeutics, mainly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have been extremely useful in the treatment of cancer, this disease is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
  Digital Pathology – transforming paediatric brain tumour classification through machine learning (Ref: SF20/APP/SCHWALBE)
  Dr E Schwalbe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Medulloblastoma is the most common central nervous system tumour of childhood. Although advances in treatment have raised survival to ~75%, there remains significant numbers of patients who die of their disease.
  Reversing multidrug chemoresistance in head and neck cancer
  Dr M T Teh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Multidrug resistance renders chemotherapeutic treatment failure in large proportion of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) patients requiring multimodal therapy involving chemotherapy in conjunction with surgery and/or radiotherapy.
  Range verification in proton beam therapy through prompt gamma-ray imaging
  Dr M Taylor, Prof R Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. The beauty of proton therapy over x-ray therapy is that the majority of protons stop within the patient. The problem lies in the fact that we cannot tell, with a great degree of accuracy, exactly where they stop !.
  Use of highly multi-modal PET and MRI data as a predictive biomarker of the site of recurrence in neuro-oncology
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Prof A Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary brain tumour including glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive and most common form in adults, continue to have a socioeconomic impact that is disproportionate to the tumour frequency due to our inability to obtain a cure in the vast majority of adult sufferers.
  A PhD applying machine learning techniques to Next Generation Sequencing Big Data to improve the prediction of prostate cancer patient outcome (BrewerU20FMH)
  Dr D Brewer, Prof C Cooper
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and an estimated 307,000 men annually die from PCa worldwide.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
