  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.
  Elucidating the mechanisms of phospholipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on characterising the fundamental process of outer membrane lipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria, a largely unknown process which is only now being revealed.
  Pharmacology of soft nanomaterials: investigating nanoparticle-cell interaction
  Dr M Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into so-called ’soft’ or organic nanomaterials has been thriving with a wide variety of compositions being explored for pharmaceutical applications.
  The effects of androgenetic alopecia development on immune function
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof K McElwee, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Androgen hormones can have significant effects on hair follicles in androgen sensitive regions of the scalp, beard, and other areas of skin.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  Regulation of intestinal immune homeostasis and inflammation by the gut microbiota
  Dr E Mann, Dr M Travis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our immune system must fight harmful pathogens, but remain silent against harmless substances such as the trillions of bacteria found in the gut that are beneficial for health.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  Targeting cannabinoids to the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) for improved treatment of autoimmune diseases
  Dr P Gershkovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoimmune diseases are conditions that are triggered by the immune system initiating an attack on the body’s own molecules. The causes of such attacks in most cases are unknown, but a number of studies suggest that they are associated with factors such as genetics, infections and environment.
  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.
