  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
  Mechanisms of regulating gene expression via selective mRNA transport
  Dr V Wickramasinghe, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical step in the gene expression pathway that is altered in cancer is nuclear export of mRNA. We have demonstrated that mRNA export is not constitutive, but highly selective and can regulate distinct biological processes through poorly understood mechanisms.
  Unravelling the oncogenic activities of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  New methods for ultra-high throughput proteomics for biomarker discovery
  Dr R Unwin, Prof A D Whetton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to reliably measure protein concentrations in blood samples is critical for the identification of disease biomarkers to allow patients’ stratification and improve patient care.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
  Re-purposing diabetes medicines to manage bleeding complications in myeloproliferative neoplasms.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr D Allsup
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of three related blood cancers in which the bone marrow overproduces one of the three cellular components of blood (erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets).
