  Identifying the determinants of tumour susceptibility to replication-inhibiting chemotherapy
  Prof A Donaldson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome replication and maintenance are central for cell division, and derailment of these processes is a major cause of cancer.
  Impact of the immune landscape on androgen ablation therapy and progression to therapy-resistant disease
  Prof I McEwan, Prof H M Wilson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer related death. The androgen receptor is important for the development and function of the prostate gland and is a driver of prostate cancer progression and metastasis.
  An improved C. elegans model of Alzheimer’s Disease to monitor neuronal signalling activity
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen, Dr S Clapcote
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is one of the most common form of neurodegenerative diseases known today, affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide.
  Determination of the function of inherited refractive error risk factor genes in the embryonic development of the eye.
  Prof L Erskine, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Collinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refractive errors, such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia), are becoming epidemic, and in parts of southeast Asia around 80% of people have short-sight.
  Do rural-dwellers develop more aggressive breast and prostate cancer than those living in the city?
  Prof P Murchie, Dr Z Miedzybrodzka, Prof V Speirs, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND.
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Telomere integrity: How do Replication Factor C-like complexes maintain telomere length?
  Dr T Kubota, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres, the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, play an essential role in protecting linear DNA from degradation. Derailed telomere regulation causes genome instability and has been implicated in increased rates of cellular senescence and many diseases, including cancer.
  The mechanism of DNA organisation mediated by cohesion and condensin
  Dr B Hu, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA of all organisms must be compacted in order to store a large amount of genetic information in one cell. Compaction must be regulated to allow access of DNA replication or transcription machinery, but to enable suitable condensation for effective chromosome segregation into two daughter cells at mitosis.
  What determines tumour susceptibility to replication-inhibiting chemotherapy?
  Prof A Donaldson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome replication and maintenance are central for cell division, and derailment of these processes is a major cause of cancer.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
