  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Engineered Tissues for Discovery, Industry and Medicine (LifETIME)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The CDT will train the next generation of leaders in developing in vitro tissues, sensing and diagnostics to develop humanised in vitro systems to drive better drug screening.
  A 3D in vitro microphysiological model of Ewing Sarcoma to study tumour biology and screen novel therapeutics.
  Dr O Piskareva
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite advances in available therapies, adults and children with metastatic and/or relapsed Ewing Sarcoma have a five-year survival rate of 15-30%, highlighting the need for new treatments.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Deciphering the role of the tumour suppressor Hippo pro-apoptotic network in cancer
  Dr D Gomez
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At SBI we believe that studying the dynamic control of cell-signalling is key for understanding many diseases, including cancer.
  Emerging hypoxic signalling in human cancers
  Dr S Rey
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our goal is to elucidate novel mechanisms of oxygen sensing in cancer cells. In particular, the student will focus upon exploring hypoxia- inducible factor (HIF)-α independent mechanisms, with potential implications for targeted cancer therapies aimed at decreasing recurrence, resistance and metastasis.
  Gene therapy of Huntington’s disease: can we restore cognitive function through RNA-based treatment and cholinergic neuromodulation?
  Dr M Tsanov
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project explores the gene therapy of Huntington’s disease. We will compare the patterns of motor and cognitive improvement in rodent models of Huntington’s disease exposed to RNA-based gene therapy.
  Immunopathogenesis of Asthma
  Dr S Lalor
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An opportunity is available for a highly motivated PhD candidate to pursue interdisciplinary research investigating local and systemic immune responses to human respiratory tract bacteria, and how this impacts the development of allergic sensitization and asthma.
  Insulin signalling and behavioural rigidity
  Dr J Glennon
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary success depends on being flexible and adapting to your environment. Our research suggests that insulin signalling is a key mechanism underlying behavioural inflexibility in Alzheimer’s Disease, obsessive compulsive disorder, type 1 myotonic dystrophy and autism.
  Mathematical modelling of cancer signalling for precision medicine
  Dr D Fey
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells process intra- and extracellular signals to make vital cell-fate decisions. In diseases such as cancer, these decisions go awry due to the dysregulation of the intracellular communication networks.
  Novel mechanisms of hypoxic metabolic reprogramming in metastatic cancers
  Dr L Schito
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia, a common feature of most human cancers, activates a multifaceted transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and epigenetic adaptive program that allows cancer cells to reprogram their metabolism in order to survive the unfavourable conditions of the tumor microenvironment, and subsequently metastasize to secondary sites.
  The role of syndecan-4 as a regulator of the tumour microenvironment in pancreatic cancer
  Dr S Thorpe
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project will assess the role of syndecan-4 in pancreatic cancer progression. Despite its relatively low prevalence, pancreatic cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer-related mortality and will claim approx.
  Dietary sugars / sweeteners during pregnancy and their impact on long term metabolic and reproductive health
  Dr C Reynolds
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is significant evidence that an unhealthy diet greatly increases the risk of complications during pregnancy and predisposes offspring to metabolic dysfunction and obesity.
