  Cancer Bioinformatics: Connecting Cell-Cell Signalling in the Tumour Microenvironment
  Dr C Tape, Prof J Herrero
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours comprise mutated cancer cells, stromal fibroblasts, and multiple immune cells. While each of these cell-types can contribute towards cancer, how they interact to support tumours is poorly understood.
  Single-Cell Signalling Analysis of CRC Tumour Microenvironment Organoids
  Dr C Tape, Prof D Hochhauser
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours are complex heterocellular systems comprising cancer cells, stromal fibroblasts, and multiple immune cell-types.
  Chemical Biology Approach to Investigate Protein Post-translational Modifications
  Dr M Muller
Application Deadline: 9 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD Studentship within the Department of Chemistry to start in Sept-Dec 2019.
  Regulation of cancer growth by Rho GTPase and cytoskeletal signalling
  Dr A Elbediwy, Dr M Stolinski, Mr P Waller, Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

What is the reason why cells can suddenly switch to uncontrolled cellular growth? What causes the normal formation of cellular contacts and organs to stop growing when reaching their normal size to ignore normal signals and multiply uncontrollably?.
  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab addresses two of the fundamental biogenesis processes that make plants essential for humanity. the development of leaves and the biogenesis of chloroplasts in leaf cells.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Telomere length elongation following treatment with chemotherapeutic drugs. Aim: To investigate the mechanisms which leads to telomere length elongation after treatment with tricostatin A and azacytidine.
  Dr T Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are specialised structures, which are present at the ends of chromosomes and serve to protect the chromosome from degradation during cell division.
  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.
  Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death
  Dr C Bubici, Dr S Papa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As you read this, millions of your cells from your body are dying. Do not panic – this is not bad news. Most of them are either superfluous or potentially harmful, so you are better off without them.
