  Cutting off the fuel supply to starve cancer: Identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer
  Dr K Brown, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A universal characteristic of all cancer cells is the reprogramming of cell metabolism to provide the energy and building blocks necessary to support proliferation and survival.
  Defining the role of p53 in cancer immunotherapy
  Prof Y. Haupt, Dr S. Haupt, Dr P. Neeson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite clear evidence of an association between the tumour suppressor p53 and immunity, a gap in knowledge exists regarding its role in modulating immune responses, or its value in predicting patient responses to immunotherapy.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway is a master regulator of numerous cellular phenotypes associated with cancer including cell survival, proliferation, growth, altered metabolism and malignant transformation.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Metabolic reprogramming and chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment options for the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) subtype of breast cancer are limited to conventional chemotherapy agents.
  Role of Auxin in Phytophthora Root Rot Disease Development in Soft Fruit
