  Joint PhD with University of Manchester: Identifying the mechanisms of sub-clinical corneal inflammation during contact lens wear
  Dr L Downie, Dr C Maldonado-Codina
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered what happens to the surface of the eye when you apply a contact lens? Some people suffer from red and painful eyes with their contact lenses and many wearers suffer from discomfort at the end of each lens-wear day.
  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.
