  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Development of “FXR-targeted” Nutraceuticals for Treatment of Intestinal Diseases
  Prof S Keely, Dr S Das
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The incidence of intestinal diseases, such as colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is significantly higher in Western societies than elsewhere in the world.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Impact of the immune landscape on androgen ablation therapy and progression to therapy-resistant disease
  Prof I McEwan, Prof H M Wilson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer related death. The androgen receptor is important for the development and function of the prostate gland and is a driver of prostate cancer progression and metastasis.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Does fatty acid uptake by oral cancer cells drive metastasis?
  Dr C Murdoch, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cell surface receptor CD36 belongs to a large scavenger receptor family that primarily bind lipid-containing molecules. Until recently their expression was thought to be restricted to macrophages and endothelial cells but recent data suggest that epithelial cancer cells may also express this receptor.
  Development and evaluation of a loco-regional drug delivery system for the treatment of pancreatic cancer
  Dr H Kelly, Dr C O'Leary, Dr S Rossi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the highest rate of death per incidence of any cancer and there have been no significant improvement in survival outcomes in the last 40 years.
