  The role of the breast microenvironment in suppressing early cancer invasion
  Assoc Prof B Parker, Dr D Zanker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a pre-invasive stage of breast cancer, whereby the tumour cells remain restrained by myoepithelial cells that surround breast ducts.
  Testing the function of immune suppressive cytokines and cells in bone metastasis
  Assoc Prof B Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone metastasis is a common occurrence in breast and prostate cancer that leads to patient morbidity and, in many cases, mortality.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Cellular cross-talk at the perivascular niche and the blood brain barrier
  Prof B Hogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much research on vasculature has focussed on the endothelial cells that line functional vessels, however the milieu of cells that surround vessels (mural cells) play important and under-appreciated roles in homeostasis and disease.
  Targeting IDH mutations in acute myeloid leukaemia
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is an aggressive disease with poor prognosis and development of novel treatment options is urgently needed.
  Computational simulation of tumour formation and progression
  Dr D. Goode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumours comprise a complex mix of related but distinct cellular subpopulations that both compete and complement one another. These dynamics strongly influence how and when a tumour forms as well as its response to therapy, however there are hard to observe directly.
  A multiple modality approach for targeting treatment-resistant ovarian cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) accounts for 70% of ovarian cancer (OvCa) deaths and its five-year survival rate is 43%.
  Analytic methods for detecting and making sense of somatic genomic rearrangements
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  Clinical cancer bioinformatics: developing new bioinformatics methods for improved analysis of cancer gene hybridisation capture panels
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  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.
