  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Research Group: Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics
  Dr M Krause, Dr K Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  Gene regulation in cancer metastasis
  Dr F Wardle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to work in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Wardle (www.kcl.ac.uk/research/profile/wardle-group) in the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London.
  Involvement of the matrix protein SPARC in the dynamic interaction between tumour and host cells
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr E Karteris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour growth depends on the crosstalk between malignant and surrounding stromal cells (fibroblasts, osteoblasts, endothelial cells and inflammatory cells).
  Clustering in bioinformatics
  Prof AK Nandi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are many bioinformatics datasets available publically. Extracting consistent information from these require development of novel techniques and tools.
  Investigating Therapeutic Effect of Different Antioxidants in Friedreich’s Ataxia (FRDA)
  Dr S Anjomani-Virmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by epigenetic silencing of the frataxin gene. It is the most common inherited ataxia, affecting 1:50,000 Caucasians, and is characterised by neurodegeneration, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus and skeletal deformities.
  Developing new antibody-based therapeutics for neuroblastoma
  Prof A Sala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic neuroblastoma is a cancer of the nervous system that kills the majority of the affected children. Although there have been tremendous advances in the understanding of the molecular causes of the disease, patients are still treated with highly toxic mixtures of chemicals and radiation.
  Integrated analysis of the Intra-tumour Heterogeneity of Oral squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr I Sequeira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a heterogeneous disease with unique genomic and phenotypic features that differ between individual patients and among different regions within the same tumour.
  Genetic and non-genetic factors involved in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr R Pazoki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Main Aim. To identify genetic and non-genetic causes of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke are the leading causes of mortality worldwide and are expected to keep rising.
  Post-transcriptional regulation of transferrin receptor expression in Trypanosoma brucei
  Dr C Tiengwe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to understand how. Trypanosoma brucei. controls expression of iron regulatory proteins in response to changes in intracellular iron.
  Self-funded PhD project on identifying the neural circuit underlying chemotaxis in Drosophila
  Dr C Larsen, Dr M Meyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemotaxis is the ability of most animals to navigate the direction and magnitude of an odour plume and is vital for survival.
  Computational methods to explore the relationship between gut microbes, metabolites and human health
  Research Group: Twin Research & Genetic Epidemiology
  Dr C Menni, Assoc Prof A Valdes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 1st January 2020. Metabolomics and the gut microbiome are intricately involved in susceptibility and potentially monitoring of metabolic diseases.
  Beta cell regeneration for diabetes therapy
  Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells hold great potential for the creation of artifical insulin-producing beta cells to treat diabetes. Matrix and matricellular components play a critical role in supporting the differentiation of stem cells into mature, functional beta cells.
