  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: How human genome variation affects gene expression
  Prof T Milne, Assoc Prof J Hughes, Dr D Waithe
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epigenetics is often described as mechanisms that maintain gene expression profiles through multiple cell divisions long after the initiating signal has been lost.
  Genetics and Genomics of Type 2 Diabetes: using human genetics to drive a mechanistic understanding of type 2 diabetes and to identify novel translational opportunities
  Prof M I McCarthy, Dr A Gloyn
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We focus on the use of human genetics to drive a mechanistic understanding of type 2 diabetes, and to identify novel translational opportunities.
  Machine Learning and Integrative Approaches in Immunology: Developing machine-learning and mathematical models to understand heterogeneity of response to personalised cancer immunotherapy
  Dr H Koohy, Prof V Cerundolo, Prof T Dong, Prof A Simmons
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer immunology is an area of cancer research that is gaining tremendous momentum. However, responses to immunotherapy are heterogeneous and patient care could be substantially improved by better understanding of how and why responses to immunotherapeutic approaches vary in different patients.
  Tumour microenvironment and colorectal cancer development: understanding the mechanisms of the tumour growth
  Prof D Kerr, Dr S Cai
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group has conducted a series of international adjuvant trials of chemotherapy for colorectal cancer (Kerr RS. et al, (2016), Lancet Oncol, 17, 1543 – 1557).
  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease
  Assoc Prof J Hughes, Prof T Milne
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hughes group is interested in how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease. The ~22 thousand genes in the mammalian genome are present in the DNA of every cell but are used in complex patterns in different cell types and organs.
  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease: determining the role of ATRX in the maintenance of chromatin and how mutations perturb disparate nuclear nuclear processes and lead to human disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.
