Showing 1 to 10 of 72
  Determinants of Sensitivity to G-Quadruplex-Binding Compounds (Deadline extended)
  Prof M Tarsounas, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The observation that BRCA1 and BRCA2 deficient cells and tumours are sensitive to G-quadruplex (G4) ligands has spurred development of cancer therapies using these molecules to target homologous recombination deficiencies.
  Investigating the Potential Benefits of MRI-LINAC for Delivery of Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SBRT) in Hepatobiliary Malignancies (Deadline extended)
  Dr M Hawkins, Prof F Van den Heuvel
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
SBRT has been investigated as an alternative to conventionally fractionated radiotherapy for the local treatment of pancreatic cancer and liver malignancies.
  Enhancing Radiotherapy Outcomes for Oesophageal Cancer (Deadline extended)
  Dr M Hawkins, Prof F Van den Heuvel
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Inhibition of ATR (a DNA damage checkpoint kinase) is currently being evaluated with radiotherapy and chemoradiation in patients with oesophageal cancer in the Cancer Research UK/MRC funded CHARIOT clinical study, whilst dose escalation is being evaluated in the SCOPE 2 clinical study.
  Structure and function of key ABC Transporters in health and disease
  Prof L Carpenter, Dr H de Wet
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Human ABC transporters are a family 52 integral membrane proteins that transport diverse molecules across cell membranes. Mutations in ABC transporters causes a range of diseases, including diabetes (ABCC8 and ABCC9), cystic fibrosis (ABCC7, CFTR) and blindness (ABCA4).
  Novel interactions of anaesthetics on oxygen sensitive TASK K+ channels derived from rat chemoreceptor cells
  Prof K Buckler, Prof J Pandit
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Fully funded 3-year National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) PhD studentship to investigate the novel interactions of anaesthetics on oxygen sensitive TASK K+ channels derived from rat chemoreceptor cells (carotid body).
  Medical Research Foundation 4-year National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research
The Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Research is the first nationwide PhD training programme to tackle AMR – one of the greatest emerging threats to global human health.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Using Machine Learning and Statistical Prediction Models to Improve Empirical Antibiotic Prescribing
  Dr D Eyre, Dr J Robotham, Dr K Poewels
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a threat to human health and modern medicine. Antibiotic use drives the development of resistance.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Genomics and Metagenomics of Animal, Environmental and Human Samples to Understand Resistance Gene Transmission Amongst Enterobacteriaceae in Oxfordshire
  Prof S Walker, Dr H S Gweon, Dr D Read, Dr N Stoesser
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major health concern and is exemplified by the rapid emergence of AMR in several key species of the bacterial family of Enterobacteriaceae, such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
  Structural and functional studies of plant transporters involved in nutrient and glycan transport.
  Dr S Newstead
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
We have several projects that involve investigating the molecular basis of nutrient and glycan transport in plant cells. One project focuses on the proton coupled nitrate transporter, NRT1.1, which is responsible for nitrate transport in root cells.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Approaches to Biomedical Science: Responsible and Reproducible Research - SABS
Good degree in the Physical or Life Sciences? Interested in biological or medical research? We offer fully-funded PhD places across the Oxford Doctoral Training Centre programmes.
