  Dual Mechanism of Action Anticancer Agents (GANESANAU20SF)
  Prof A Ganesan, Dr S E Matthews
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The modulation of immune checkpoints and epigenetic regulation are two new strategies for cancer chemotherapy that have resulted in a number of recently approved drugs.
  Inhibitors of cilia and Hedgehog signaling: from phenotype to mechanistic understanding
  Prof S Hoogendoorn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hedgehog (Hh) signaling pathway is a major contributor to embryonic development, and tissue homeostasis and stem cell maintenance in children and adults.
  Development of bioorthogonal stimulated Raman scattering microscopy for evaluation of drug biodistribution
  Prof A N Hulme, Prof V Brunton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for an EPSRC‐funded collaborative PhD for the development and application of novel bioorthogonal tagging and multi‐modal imaging technologies to enhance preclinical evaluation of drugs and associated pharmacodynamic biomarkers.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Integrated spectroscopic imaging and computational modelling approach for assessing skin penetration
  Dr T Chen
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin penetration underpins the design, efficacy and risk assessment of many high-value products including topical and transdermal drugs, functional personal care products, amongst others.
  Vanadium N-Heterocyclic carbenes: Towards new metal-based anti-cancer agents (LORDRU20SCIEC)
  Dr R Lord, Dr J Fielden
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platinum-based therapeutics dominate the clinical drug market for the treatment of cancer. And although these complexes have been crucial in the fight against cancer, they have some major drawbacks associated with their use.
  Design and synthesis of novel, targeted, anti-cancer agents
  Prof H Osborn, Dr F Greco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is that the drugs used have poor selectivities for cancer cells and cause damage to normal cells and organs.
  Tyrosine kinase inhibitors conjugated tumour targeting dyes for the treatment of glioblastoma.
  Dr J Jose, Dr P Choi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma (GBM) remains a lethal and difficult to treat cancer with a dismal outcome. Although we have a better understanding of the disease progression, a concurrent increase in therapeutic intervention is lagging.
  Discovery of new drug leads from extremophilic microorganisms (Ref: PhDCEPS192001)
  Dr M Rateb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the cold deep seas, Antarctic, and Arid and hyper-arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with diverse and potent biological activity.
  Discovery of new drug leads from under-explored marine microorganisms (PhDCEPS192002)
  Dr M Rateb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from under-explored environments such as the deep seas and cold seas have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with diverse and potent biological activity.
