Identification of determinants of sudden cardiac death using population studies

Sudden cardiac death is a major cause of deaths from cardiovascular origin. Indeed, up to half of the deaths from cardiovascular diseases are caused by sudden cardiac death. Read more

Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases. Read more

Opportunities for research studying Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University of Sheffield, Department of Oncology and Metabolism

The Department of Oncology and Metabolism, based in the Medical School, is a multidisciplinary department that has 4 main themes. The Diabetes and Endocrinology research theme has strengths in adrenal disease, diabetes, neuroendocrine tumours and drug development. Read more

Phenotypic characterisation of red and white blood cells from patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is escalating at an alarming rate, with almost 10% of the UK population suffering from T2DM or in a pre-diabetic state. Read more

Towards development of light-activated biotherapeutics (SACHEVAA_U21SCIPVC)

Over the last decade, several antibody-based biotherapeutics have been developed for treatment of cancer. These antibodies, often marketed as “targeted therapeutics”, bind to cell surface receptors on cancer cells and direct them towards apoptosis (programmed cell death). Read more

International PhD Academy: Medical Research

The International PhD Academy. Medical Research is based in the Leeds Institute of Medical Research at the University of Leeds, St James's University Hospital Campus. Read more

Genetic engineering of the human mitochondrial genome (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").

Mitochondria are intracellular organelles that are essential for life and human health. Mutations of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are a major cause of inherited disease affecting ~1/8000 humans, either due to single base substitutions or deletions. Read more

Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy). Read more

Brk and mTOR signalling: implications for Taxol resistance

One of the major causes of death amongst breast cancer patients is due to the development of distal metastases and the acquisition of resistance to chemotherapeutic agents. Read more
