  Application of machine learning to establish epigenetic regulators in breast and bladder epithelial tissue
  Dr AN Holding, Prof J Southgate
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetics. modifications to DNA and histones that change the expression. of genes but do not alter the code of the genes, are critical to the.
  Functional analysis of CIZ1
  Prof D Coverley
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the structure, function and disease implications of the CIZ1 protein, and related factors involved in organisation of the mammalian cell nucleus.
  Homeostatic mechanisms in human urothelium: balancing of tissue regeneration and differentiation with implications for regenerative medicine and cancer
  Prof J Southgate
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The urothelium is the self-regenerating epithelium that lines the bladder, where it is highly specialised to function as a urinary barrier.
  Investigating the role of the FGF pathway in gene regulation during early amphibian development.
  Dr H V Isaacs, Dr M E Pownall
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signalling pathway plays critical roles in regulating cell lineage during normal development and stem cell differentiation in culture.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Neuronal Src kinases: oncogenes in brain development?
  Dr G Evans, Dr S Chawla
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenges of the developing human brain include co-ordinating the birth and migration of 100 billion neurons and the formation of their 1000 trillion synaptic connections.
  New approaches to understanding the physical biology of blood stem cells
  Dr D G Kent, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trillions of blood cells are produced and destroyed every day. Adult blood stem cells are ultimately responsible for the lifelong maintenance of this system, making it essential to understand their biology for a wide array of clinical and industrial applications.
  Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology
  Dr D G Kent, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell.
  Selective control of tRNA gene transcription by steroid receptors and BRCA1.
  Prof R J White, Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BRCA1 is an important tumour suppressor protein with roles in DNA repair. and transcription. BRCA1 binds many tRNA genes, but its role there is.
