  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.
  Anti-accommodation in anisometropic amblyopia
  Dr S Toor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accommodation has always been considered to be a symmetrical process.
  Exploring mechanisms of resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy in breast cancer
  Dr C Kanthou, Prof N Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent angiogenesis inducer and is often overexpressed in cancer. Circulating levels of VEGF as well as tumour microvessel density are of prognostic value in breast cancer.
  HDAC inhibitors: a potential therapy for breast cancer?
  Dr C Staton, Dr B Corfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation resistance, due to hypoxia, remains a major cause of mortality in the treatment of breast cancer.
  High-throughput mechanobiology
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer research has traditionally focused upon extra- or intra-cellular biochemical signals, and their relation to cancer development and metastasis.
  Proteomic Markers of Chronic Renal Scarring
  Dr P Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All types of chronic kidney disease (CKD) progress to end stage renal failure through a common pathway of fibrosis and scarring. Subsequently 2 million patients worldwide require renal replacement therapy (RRT).
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
