  Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation
  Dr P Foster, Dr L Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Boosting metabolism to overcome liver disease
  Assoc Prof K Hoehn, Assoc Prof A Zekry
Application Deadline: 12 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

UNSW is now accepting expression of interest for the next round of Scientia PhD Scholarships, including our project. Boosting metabolism to overcome liver disease.
  Imaging tumour metabolism with 23Na MRI and 82Rb Positron Emission Tomography
  Dr T Eykyn, Dr R Southworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours generally display a preference for glycolysis over oxidative metabolism even in the presence of oxygen.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology
  Dr P Foster, Dr R Hardy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis.
  Modelling the interface of metabolism, methylation and mitochondria in prostate cancer
  Prof A Lynch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interface of metabolism, methylation and mitochondria is of key importance for understanding the aetiology, biology and prognosis of prostate cancer[1].
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
