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.
  Effects of methodological decisions on the outcomes of systematic reviews (HooperL-SongFU19SF)
  Dr L Hooper, Dr F Song
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
