  Investigation of the role of post-translational modifications in hypoxia signalling
  Dr V See, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hypoxia signalling pathway is required for the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen environment, which cells can experience in various physiological and pathological circumstances related to high altitude, development, wound healing and cancer.
  Validation of novel biomarkers for improved risk stratification and therapy for the paediatric cancer neuroblastoma
  Dr V See, Dr A Herrmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuroblastoma is the second most common cancer in childhood but still has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood malignancies.
  Exploring the role of meiotic proteins in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.
  Molecular analysis of the dynamic sulfotyrosine proteome
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof P Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival of an organism depends upon the ability of different cell types to communicate with each other by assembling the correct complexes of proteins at the correct time in the correct place.
  Multi-omics investigations for enhanced understanding of NF-κB mediated drug resistance
  Prof R Goodacre, Prof N Perkins, Prof C E Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have an established system that can be used to investigate the role of NF-κB signalling in the cancer cell response to DNA replication stress and have generated cell lines which are resistant to treatment with a highly selective and specific CHK1 inhibitor (CCT244747).
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  LaNts and laminins in breast cancer
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The laminins are a family of proteins that make up part of specialised regions of extracellular matrix termed basement membranes.
  Taking control of cancer-associated splicing switches
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In cancer, numerous changes to protein expression occur. Some of these are the result of changes to gene transcription or mRNA degradation rates, however, it has increasingly apparent that changes to alternative splicing profile are a key driver of cancer progression.
