  Role of the tumour microenvironment in gastric cancer
  Dr A. Boussioutas, Dr R. Busuttil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer globally and 7th in incidence in Australia. It has a poor survival rate which can be attributed to the advanced stage at diagnosis in most patients.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating the metabolic alterations that initiate pre-neoplastic development in zebrafish and in humans
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr Y Feng, Dr K Burgess, Dr R Burchmore, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. “Warburg metabolism” is characterised by an increased uptake of glucose and its conversion to lactate by glycolysis under normoxia.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a self-funded project, match-finding option may be available for qualifying candidates. Please include a detailed CV with any enquiries.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
