  Accelerating our ability to understand and target complexity and heterogeneity in cancer through automated imaging of 3D cancer models including patient derived organoids
  Dr C Dunsby, Prof P French
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drug resistance is a major challenge for cancer therapy, arising from heterogeneous cellular behaviours within tumours, where initially identical clonal cells can mutate and adapt to diverse microenvironments.
  Development of oblique plane microscopy to accelerate our ability to understand and target complexity and heterogeneity in cancer
  Dr C Dunsby, Dr C Bakal
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasingly, the use of conventional 2-D cell cultures (typically monolayers of cells on glass or plastic substrates) are being found to be inadequate as models of biological systems for the purposes of fundamental biology research and drug discovery.
  Tumour evolution in super-resolution: Developing new Artificial Intelligence based methods to analyse 4D imaging data of tumour communities
  Prof C Bakal, Dr C Dunsby
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For details on how to apply using our online recruitment portal please see http://icr.ac.uk/phds. Developing new cancer therapies requires improved understanding of heterogeneity in cell behaviour.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  Uncovering 3D genome architecture in annelid worms
  Dr JM Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  A 3D in vitro microphysiological model of Ewing Sarcoma to study tumour biology and screen novel therapeutics.
  Dr O Piskareva
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite advances in available therapies, adults and children with metastatic and/or relapsed Ewing Sarcoma have a five-year survival rate of 15-30%, highlighting the need for new treatments.
  EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership: Complex Biological Products Manufacture

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological products and their manufacture are progressing to unparalleled levels of complexity. Examples include engineered biocatalysts, antibody-drug conjugates, multivalent vaccines and cellular therapies.
  Physics behind the evolution of cell remodelling
  Dr A Saric
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. Such cells are built out of physical compartments separated from each other by membrane boundaries.
  Live cell imaging under extreme conditions
  Dr B Baum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. It is now thought that they arose as the result of the establishment of a symbiotic partnership between an archaeal host cell and a bacterium, which went on to become the mitochondrion.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Oncogenic mechanisms causing malignant transformation of lymphoid cells
  Prof U Klein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancers of B cells and plasma cells, lymphomas and multiple myeloma, can be very aggressive, and often the cancer rapidly reoccurs after standard therapy.
  LaNts and laminins in breast cancer
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The laminins are a family of proteins that make up part of specialised regions of extracellular matrix termed basement membranes.
  Uncovering the mechanisms of cryoprotectant toxicity and improving cryopreservation protocols
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryopreservation is the process of placing cells, organs or even whole organisms at low temperatures so that they remain in a state of suspended animation and function is preserved.
  UK Regenerative Medicine Platform (UKRMP2) –Smart Materials Additive BioFabrication of Porous Scaffolds for Hierarchical Bone Tissue Engineering
  Prof F Rose
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UKRMP Smart Materials Hub aims to develop the next generation of bioactive scaffolds and biomatrices to treat the eye, the musculoskeletal system and the liver.
  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
