  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.
  Actin regulation of nuclear mechanics during DNA repair
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In eukaryotic cells, the nucleus houses the genomic material and transcription machinery that allows the cell to develop and perform its role.
  Proteases as mediators of tissue repair
  Dr M Sherratt, Dr G Lopez-Castejon, Dr C Platt
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue proteases may be expressed constitutively or in response to injury or disease. In skin, excessive protease activity, either due to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure or intrinsic inflammation is commonly considered to be a key driver of ageing.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  Genetic and molecular mechanisms of nervous regeneration and repair
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will aim to discover novel molecular mechanisms that could promote central nervous system regeneration. The focus will be on how neurons and glia interact to match their cell populations and functions, and on the regenerative potential of glial cells.
  LaNts in wound repair, stem cell activation and squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr K Hamill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Laminin N terminus proteins (LaNts) are a relatively unstudied protein family that are related to netrins and laminins. To date there are only two publications and one preprint about the LaNt proteins in the literature which means there is a massive potential to do novel, ground breaking research in this area.
  Cell-matrix signalling in skin repair
  Dr M Sherratt, Dr A P Gilmore, Dr M Ozols
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In many tissues damage to the extracellular matrix (ECM) can accumulate over a lifetime resulting in diseases such as arteriosclerosis, emphysema and arthritis.
  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.
