  Targeting addiction to a breast cancer metastasis survival pathway by inhibition of RAN GTPase
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr S Betmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic cancer is a major global health burden. Each year, eleven million new cases of cancer are diagnosed worldwide, including 5 million cases in industrialized countries.
  Developing and applying computational methods to understand the genetics of ageing
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the chief biomedical challenge of the 21st century, yet it remains a major puzzle of biology. Although it is clear that the process of ageing has a strong genetic component, much work remains to elucidate how the genome regulates ageing.
  Therapeutic resolution of Myodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are the most common adult myeloid malignancy in the UK and it has been estimated that around 8,000 and 40,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the UK and USA, respectively.
  Synthesis and Anti-Cancer Evaluation of New Heterocyclic Quinones
  Prof F Aldabbagh, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group has published on small molecules with specificity towards hypoxic cells associated with solid tumours, reductase enzymes over-expressed in cancer, as well as, aziridines that induce hypersensitivity from Fanconi anaemia cells and those carrying mutations in the BRCA (Breast Cancer Susceptibility) genes.
  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.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Re-purposing established drugs for the resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Prof C Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  The DNA Damage Response in Cancer
  Dr G Melino, Dr I Amelio
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The MRC Toxicology Unit is a leading international research institute within the School of Biological Sciences in the University of Cambridge.
  Synthesis of new DNA binding to compounds target genetic diseases such as cancer and diabetes (WALLERZU19SF)
  Dr Z Waller, Prof M Searcey
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthesis of new DNA binding compounds to target genetic diseases such as cancer and diabetes. It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick double helix but it can actually adopt many different types of structure depending on the sequence and environmental conditions.
