  (EPSRC DTP) Deep learning methods for fast and accurate MR-guided radiotherapy in lung cancer
  Dr B Rowland, Prof M Van Herk, Dr D Cobben
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Lung cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK with around 45,000 new patients per year. Survival remains poor, with a third of patients experiencing local failure and a 5 year survival of only 9.5%.
  (EPSRC DTP) Lifecycle exposure and risk assessment for graphene and other carbon based nanomaterials
  Prof M van Tongeren, Dr C Bussy
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
The University of Manchester (UoM) is leading research and knowledge transfer on the production and use of carbon based two dimensional materials (2D materials), through the National Graphene Institute (NGI, part of the Henry Royce Institute, the UK National Institute for Advanced Materials Research and Innovation) and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC).
  (EPSRC DTP) Machine learning to explore the effect of Sarcopenia for patients undergoing cancer treatments
  Dr A McWilliam, Dr P Bromiley, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Half of people born after 1960 will develop cancer at some point in their lives, the majority will undergo treatment with the intention of curing their disease.
  (EPSRC DTP) Modelling the network of bioactive lipids involved in inflammatory reactions
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Bioactive lipids are key players in the inflammatory and immune reactions that modulate the function of various cell types and organs.
  (EPSRC DTP) New strategies for immuno-PET radiochemistry to support immunotherapy and facilitate clinical translation of new potential antibody therapies
  Dr M Fairclough, Dr A McMahon
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Immuno-PET is an expanding area of nuclear imaging. combining the sensitivity of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) with the high target affinity of antibodies.
  (EPSRC DTP) Novel ruthenium catalysts for drug discovery of DNA damage response inhibitors
  Dr C.K Schmidt, Prof I Larrosa, Dr L Tabernero
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
The DNA damage response (DDR) harbours a plethora of eminently druggable targets that could lead to the treatment of cancer, ageing and associated diseases.
  (EPSRC DTP) Probe the influence of hierarchical structure and composition of dental hard tissues on erosion and remineralisation
  Dr X Chen, Prof PJ Withers
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
Dental erosion is the loss of dental hard tissues (enamel and dentine) by chemical dissolution in the absence of bacterial involvement.
  (MCRC Non-Clinical) Developing cellular micromotors to improve ovarian cancer management
  Dr C.K Schmidt, Prof R Edmondson, Prof D Brison, Prof S Taylor
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Conventional cancer chemotherapies are unspecific and elicit severe side effects. Yet, they remain the backbone of current therapies, illustrating the need for new and more specific approaches.
  A functional proteomic approach to reveal how receptor tyrosine kinases trafficking specifies cancer cell responses
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Background and goals. Cells respond appropriately to their surroundings by activating plasma membrane spanning receptors like Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) and thereby adapting long-term outputs (e.g.
  A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng, Dr J Swift
Applications accepted all year round
The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
