  DNA Damage and Repair: Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment
  Prof P McHugh, Prof J Rehwinkel, Prof A Harris
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our DNA is constantly under threat from damaging agents. If unrepaired this DNA damage can lead to errors during genome duplication, including the mutations that can lead to cancer and other human diseases.
  Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Repair MSc by Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Become an expert in tissue regeneration and repair at the University of Edinburgh. This Masters by Research programme is a one-year, full-time, on-campus programme structured around two laboratory-based research projects.
  Defining the ‘molecular signature’ of PARP inhibitor sensitivity in blood cancers
  Dr T Gaymes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite significant advances in the understanding of the biology of blood cancers, identification of the most effective and safe form of treatment continues to present a formidable challenge to clinicians.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  Activation of targeted DNA Damage Response as a novel therapy for Ovarian Cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is the most common and aggressive subtype of ovarian cancer and accounts for 70% of all ovarian cancer deaths.
  The repair of damaged tissue by mitochondrial transplantation.
  Dr R Southworth, Dr T Eykyn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondrial injury and mitochondrial dysfunction are central to numerous diseases, from myocardial infarction to stroke, neurogenerative diseases, inborn errors of metabolism, and drug toxicity.
  Adapting and testing the feasibility of an enhanced community-based rehabilitation programme following hip fracture for people with dementia or cognitive impairment
  Prof N Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proximal femoral fracture (commonly referred to as hip fracture) is a major health problem in the frail elderly [1], and 42% have cognitive impairment [2].
  Understanding the role of HoxA9 in chemotherapy resistance of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML)
  Dr M Esposito
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is a rare but yet deadly form of blood cancer. Genome-wide expression arrays and RNA sequencing have contributed to unravelling the leukaemia signature genes.
  Identification and functional characterisation of BRIT1/MCPH1 synthetic lethal genes to treat breast and ovarian cancer
  Dr S Bell, Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Women who have undergone surgery for breast and ovarian cancer often have additional chemotherapy to kill residual cancer cells and prevent recurrence.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
