Showing 1 to 10 of 16
  PhD In Cancer & Genetics - Identifying genetic modifiers of age of cancer onset
  Prof J P Cheadle, Prof V Escott-Price
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Rare highly penetrant genetic disease alleles cause early disease onset. In some conditions such as Huntington’s chorea, the size of the disease causing allele directly affects age of onset.
  PhD in Cancer & Genetics - Investigating the influence of Wnt signalling in the leukaemic microenvironment during allogeneic stem cell transplantation
  Dr J Zabkiewickz, Prof O Ottmann
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
AML is an aggressive blood cancer requiring allogeneic stem cell transplantation to improve outcome in the vast majority of poor risk patients.
  PhD in Cancer & Genetics - Targeting intestinal cancer using 3D organoid cell models
  Prof J R Sampson, Dr L Thomas
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Over one million new cases of colorectal cancer (CRC) are diagnosed worldwide each year. Inherited factors appear to be involved in up to 35% of cases.
  PhD in Cancer Research - Investigating the roles of PARP and ligase inhibitors in preventing escape from telomere crisis.
  Prof D Baird
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Telomere crisis (TC) is a natural defence mechanism against cancer. TC happens when the ends of human chromosomes, called telomeres, start to abnormally join with each other, causing cells to die.
  PhD in Cancer Research - Targeting neuroinflammation in mTORC1-driven brain tumours
  Dr A Tee, Prof A Harwood
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This project will not only create a new brain tumour model, but will also give us valuable information on mTOR’s involvement in the development of brain tumours.
  PhD in Immunology - Investigation of the role of TLR endogenous ligands in the increased risk of cardiovascular disease patients with chronic kidney disease
  Dr A Raby
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This PhD project aims at investigating the inflammatory mechanisms behind the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in patients suffering from kidney disease.
  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Modifying human cytomegaloviruses to drive expansion of effector natural killer and cytotoxic T cells
  Dr E Wang, Dr R Stanton
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Natural Killer (NK) cells and CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) are immune cells known to kill cancerous and virus-infected cells and are being used to treat forms of these diseases.
  PhD In Infection & Immunity - Profiling superantigen-induced immunosupression of unconventional T cells during severe sepsis
  Dr J McLaren, Prof M Eberl, Prof D Price
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Sepsis is a life-threatening illness that is triggered by an exaggerated immune response to severe infection. This unbalanced reaction induces hyperinflammation, shock and organ dysfunction that forms the primary cause of death in hospitalised patients.
  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Understanding immune stimulation of novel viral vaccine vectors
  Dr R Stanton, Dr E Wang
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an exciting viral vaccine vector, that can protect against HIV and cancer in animal models. However it is also a pathogen that causes significant disease and death on a worldwide level, mainly in transplant recipients and unborn babies.
  PhD in Population Medicine - Adverse childhood experiences and their association with child health and development in low and middle income countries
  Dr L Hurt, Dr V Adekanmbi
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that may have lasting effects on health and wellbeing.
