  Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis.
  Predicting therapy responses in psoriasis
  Dr M Wittmann
Application Deadline: 6 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment options for inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis have greatly improved over the last decade. However, our current inability to predict who will respond best to which treatment causes frustration for both clinicians and patients.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
  The role of UV exposure and novel compounds on the immunogenicity and genotoxicity of skin cancer
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr M Najafzadeh, Dr S Kauser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The major aims of this project are to investigate the effect of UV in the development of different skin cancers compared to spontaneously regressing precancerous lesion, keratoacanthoma; and the effect of a novel compounds such as the structurally modified retinoic acid in the treatment of skin cancers and other cutaneous lesions.
  Oncogenic reprogramming of immune cells, a novel mechanism of drug-resistance.
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Development of Novel Tools to Determine how Aberrant V(D)J Recombination Reactions Cause Leukaemia
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination generates a highly diverse set of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes to enable vertebrates to fight a vast range of infections.
  Enhancing Oncolytic Virus-induced Immunotherapy using Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
  Dr F Errington-Mais, Dr MA Volpato
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) having the worst prognosis, highest death rate and lowest overall survival.
  Oncogenic mechanisms causing malignant transformation of lymphoid cells
  Prof U Klein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancers of B cells and plasma cells, lymphomas and multiple myeloma, can be very aggressive, and often the cancer rapidly reoccurs after standard therapy.
  International PhD Academy: Medical Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our vision is to impact locally, nationally and globally on biomedical and clinical research with a primary emphasis on health outcomes.
