  FoodBioSystems DTP - A receptor-ligand module that triggers cell death in plants: a killer in disguise
  Dr M Bosch, Dr L J McGuffin, Prof G J Stephens
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Most of our food is a product of plant reproduction with fertility and seed set critical for crop yield and thus food security.
  Understanding Dynamic Intracellular Organization in Gene-Engineered Cells by Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy and Physical Micromanipulation
  Dr T Surrey
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The inside of living cells is highly organized. Nevertheless, cellular components constantly move around and all molecules constantly turn over.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Dr M Krause
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A New Approach to the Production of Cultured Meat with Enhanced Texture
  Prof I W Hamley, Dr R Wonfor
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Future food production needs to meet a growing demand for food and changing diets, as the human population is predicted to reach 9 billion by 2050.
  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.
  Stimulating the sirtuin family in the treatment of cancer.
  Dr P Ragazzon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year, thousands of people face cancer diagnosis. Survival rates are high, but many face devastating disabilities and long-term side effects resulting from currently treatments.
  Investigating metabolic changes in neurodegeneration
  Dr F Mackenzie, Dr M Stolinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study the increasingly recognised association between metabolic disease and neurodegeneration using in vitro cell culture methods.
  Investigation of the Role of Long Non Coding RNA During Skin Development and Wound Healing
  Dr M Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin morphogenesis occurs under stringent control of epithelial-mesenchymal interactions and result in a formation of the epidermis and a number of different skin appendages (including, the hair follicle, HF).
  Characterizing the in vivo functions of P-Rex1 in breast development and tumourigenesis
  Dr A Ucar, Prof K R Brennan, Dr A Malliri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with a lifetime risk of 1-in-8 for women and accounts for 12,000 deaths annually.
