  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.
  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.
