  Ph.D. Studentship: Smart endoscopic probes for bowel cancer surgery
  Dr S Abayzeed, Dr G Gordon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Highly talented and motivated UK/EU students are invited to apply for a funded PhD studentship at the University of Nottingham to pursue the development of a novel electrosurgical technology with a focus on treatment of bowel cancer.
  Bioengineering of patient-derived explants (PDEs) and 3D organoid culture systems for tissue regeneration, cancer and drug discovery
  Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The intestine provides an attractive route to model biologically important intestinal processes and a unique opportunity for the direct identification and analysis of factors that contribute to development and maintenance of both normal as well as the development of neoplasia.
  Towards the development of an effective vaccine for advanced prostate cancer
  Dr S McArdle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the second most frequent cancer in men. Patients with a localized disease are treated with local therapies such as prostatectomy or radiation therapy, whereas patients with metastatic disease are treated with androgen deprivation therapies (ADT).
  Exploring new strategies for the inhibition of bile duct cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma)
  Dr P-S Jayaraman, Prof K Gaston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) arises from the transformation of cholangiocytes of the epithelial bile duct/ductules within the liver. The incidence and mortality rates for CCA are increasing worldwide and a better understanding of how CCA develops and new treatment options are urgently needed.
  Investigating differentiation processes in normal and tumoral cells which affect phenotypic heterogeneity and stemness
  Dr P Ordonez Moran, Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on understanding tissue renewal in health and disease using the intestine as a model system to study adult stem cell biology for a therapeutic benefit.
  Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy
  Prof K Gaston, Dr P-S Jayaraman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies.
  Gene Regulation by the KAT6A/MOZ Histone Acetyltransferase
  Prof D Heery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human KAT6A and KAT6B genes encode the nuclear proteins MOZ and MORF, which are key gene regulators in development of blood, brain and other tissues.
