  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round
"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
  Regulation of cell migration in cancer
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in how cells move and how this movement, or migration, is controlled. Cell migration is an essential part of many normal biological processes and also many diseases.
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round
Changes in the patterns of carbohydrates produced by the cell can provide insights into disease states, revealing perturbations and differences in cellular metabolic processes.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round
Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Design and synthesis of novel, targeted, anti-cancer agents
  Prof H Osborn, Dr F Greco
Applications accepted all year round
One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is that the drugs used have poor selectivities for cancer cells and cause damage to normal cells and organs.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round
Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round
Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
