  Understanding the role of HoxA9 in chemotherapy resistance of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
  Dr M Esposito
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare but yet deadly form of blood cancer. Genome-wide expression arrays and RNA sequencing have contributed to unravelling the leukaemia signature genes.
  Understanding and combatting antimicrobial resistance plasmids
  Dr M Buckner, Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major crisis for human medicine. Globally, untreatable bacterial infections are rapidly increasing, leaving us with limited treatment options.
  Defining metabolic pathways controlling the response to infection.
  Prof S Spano, Dr M Baldassarre, Dr J Rochford
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to fight off infection, the body must activate a highly orchestrated response to the infectious agent. The ability to respond to infections critically depends on our general health status and the strength of our immune system.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  Genetic and immunological basis of rare primary immunodeficiency diseases
  Dr P Arkwright, Dr T Briggs, Prof T Hussell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objective. To understand the genetic and explore the functional immune basis of rare primary immunodeficiency diseases. Background.
  DNA Damage and Repair: Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment
  Prof P McHugh, Prof J Rehwinkel, Prof A Harris
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our DNA is constantly under threat from damaging agents. If unrepaired this DNA damage can lead to errors during genome duplication, including the mutations that can lead to cancer and other human diseases.
  Genetics of inherited cardiovascular disease: Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Prof H Watkins, Prof H Ashrafian, Prof C Redwood, Prof M Farrall
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using molecular genetic analysis of cardiovascular disease as a tool to define disease mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
