  Adipose tissue remodelling in obesity and type 2 diabetes
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Due to the changes in lifestyle and environment, the incidence of obesity has rapidly increased over the last two decades.
  Investigating the pathogenesis of pancreatic beta cell dysfunction in type 2 diabetes
  Dr K K Y Cheng
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Normal glucose levels is tightly controlled by the actions and secretion of insulin. After a meal, pancreatic β-cells secrete insulin, which not only promotes glucose uptake in skeletal muscle and adipose tissues but also inhibits glucose production in the liver.
  Diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in lung cancer
  Dr D CL Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of my research laboratory is to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer through multi-disciplinary research that translates results between the laboratory and the clinic.
  Centrosome Amplification and Cancer
  Dr Y Ching
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrosome, which is the microtubule-organising center (MTOC) in the cell, plays a critical role in determining the motility, polarity and division of cell.
  Dissecting the tubulin diversity: understanding how tubulin isotypes regulate microtubule networks
  Dr J Ti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

α/β-tubulin heterodimers form dynamic polymers, microtubules, that are central to cellular processes, such as cell division, cell migration, and organelle transportation.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Exploiting stemness as a cancer cell vulnerability using hepatocellular carcinoma as a model system
  Dr S Ma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumors are composed of non-homogeneous cell populations exhibiting varying degrees of genetic and functional heterogeneity. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are capable of sustaining tumors by manipulating genetic and non-genetic factors to metastasize, resist treatment, and maintain the tumor microenvironment.
  High-throughput discovery of combination therapies and engineering of CRISPR/therapeutic proteins
  Dr A Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab is interested in developing and applying state-of-the-art combinatorial genetics technologies to decipher the mechanisms behind complex diseases, including cancers and neurodegenerative disorders, and discover novel combination therapies.
  Investigating how activated monocytes/macrophages infiltrate into the brain to stimulate neuroimmune responses
  Dr R Chang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Disease (Dr. Raymond CC Chang’s Lab. Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/Neurodeglab) is looking for a pro-active PhD student with first class honor or equivalent.
  Nucleic acid aptamers for diagnostics, therapeutics and DNA nanotechnology
  Dr J Tanner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nucleic acid aptamers can be evolved to bind specifically to molecules and have particular functions in a range of applications. They are also wonderful tools as adaptors and functional units in DNA nanotechnology.
