  The Role of Fusion Genes Tumourigenesis
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Application Deadline: 3 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Salivary gland tumours are uncommon but have a varied and complex pattern of histopathological features.
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Understanding the biology of male breast cancer to identify more precise ways to inform clinical decision making for personalised treatment strategies.
  Prof V Speirs, Dr R Abu Eid
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer (BC) affects both genders but remains understudied in men. This is a concern; research from our and other laboratories show a rise in the number of men receiving a breast cancer diagnosis over the last 3 decades.
  Defining metabolic pathways controlling the response to infection.
  Prof S Spano, Dr M Baldassarre, Dr J Rochford
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to fight off infection, the body must activate a highly orchestrated response to the infectious agent. The ability to respond to infections critically depends on our general health status and the strength of our immune system.
  Genetic changes underlying colorectal cancer initiation and progression
  Assoc Prof V Whitehall
Application Deadline: 11 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the Gastroenterology Laboratory we are interested in characterising the genetic changes underlying the progression of pre-cancerous colonic polyps to colon cancer.
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Curing Genetic Muscle diseases
  Dr J Ochala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Congenital myopathies are a group of genetic muscle diseases with unclear mechanisms and no efficient treatment.
  The role of isothiocyanates-derived from natural sources in uveal melanoma chemoprevention (ref: SF18/APP/McDermott)
  Prof A McDermott, Prof M Panagiotidis, Dr G Koutsidis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Uveal melanoma is the most frequent primary intraocular tumor, in Caucasian adults, and one that is very difficult to treat once it becomes metastatic.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
