  Precision Medicine DTP - How do IFITM proteins regulate the Interferon Related DNA-damage Resistance Signature (IRDS) and clinical outcomes in cancers of high unmet clinical need?
  Dr R Sloan, Prof K Ball, Dr S Wilson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Interferon Induced Transmembrane proteins (IFITMs) are a family of innate immune membrane proteins that can inhibit viral infection at cell entry (e.g.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Analyzing network formation during brain tumour initiation
  Dr D Sieger, Prof P Uhlén
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. High grade brain tumours (HGBTs) represent a complex and devastating disease and are posing an unmet clinical need. These tumours resist multi-modal therapies and survival times are only 15 months on average.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Proteomic analysis of FAK function in human pancreatic cancer
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr A Serrels, Dr A Byron, Dr A von Kriegsheim
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In the United Kingdom, the 5-year survival rate for patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is just 3% (Cancer Research UK statistics), and as a result pancreatic cancer is the 4th most common cause of cancer death in the UK and US.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Stromal transcriptomic signatures in prostate cancer metastasis and hormone therapy resistance
  Research Group: MRC Centre for Reproductive Health
  Dr B Qian, Prof H Y Leung, Dr A Sims, Prof P Wiklund
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A tremendous amount of cancer ‘-omics’ data have been generated with the intention to stratify patients for personalized diagnosis and treatment.

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological Sciences, in partnership with Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is delighted to open applications to the fifth cohort of students on this Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Integration of single-cell RNA sequencing data from human and murine kidney disease to identify novel therapeutic targets
  Dr BC Conway, Dr T Chandra, Dr D Ferenbach
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and for end-stage kidney disease (ESRD), at which point patients require dialysis or transplantation.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Harnessing plasticity to repair spinal cord injury
  Dr T Becker, Prof C G Becker, Prof A El Manira
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. After a spinal cord injury in the zebrafish, lost neurons are replaced and axonal connections re-established (Tsarouchas et al., 2018).
  EASTBIO Understanding the rules of mitochondrial nucleic acid escape in innate immune activation
  Dr A Dhir, Dr S Tait
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are the ‘power-stations’ of our cell, providing energy for cellular function. Mitochondria have evolved from ancient bacteria that invaded our cells a billion of years ago and have ‘integrated’ into our biological system in an endosymbiotic relationship.
  EASTBIO: Chloride ion-mediated inhibition of animal and human viruses as a broadly active antiviral mechanism
  Dr S Ramalingam, Prof J Haas
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment with hypertonic saline is recommended in patients with upper respiratory tract infections bronchiolitis and cystic fibrosis1.
  EASTBIO: How do the HUSH complex and REAF/RPRD2 control endogenous retroelements?
  Dr R Sloan, Dr J Garcia-Perez
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to understand how the recently identified antiviral HUSH complex and the antiviral protein REAF/RPRD2 can inhibit endogenous retroelements.
