Current treatment with anticancer drugs suffers from the drawbacks of systemic toxicity, drug resistance and limited cellular entry.
  Development of an inhalable anti-tubercular therapies to include pre-clinical screening and 3D printing/additive manufacturing.
  Prof S Cryan, Prof A Heise, Dr J Keane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) is the primary infectious disease killer in the world. In 2016 alone 1.7million people died from TB and 10 million people fell ill [1].
  Developing streamlined approaches to assessing the systemic and hepatic effects of nanomaterials (EPS2020/08)
  Prof V Stone
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrated approaches to testing and assessment (IATAs) are under development to assess the hazards of nanomaterials via ingestion, inhalation and dermal application.
  Pharmacoengineering of advanced RNA-nanomedicines to treat cystic fibrosis (CF)
  Prof S Cryan, Prof A Heise, Prof C Greene
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder caused by a mutation in a single gene responsible for the production of a protein called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR).
  An Organ on a Chip Platform for Biomedical Applications
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organ on a chip devices are an emerging technology which employ microfluidics to grow 3D tissues, mimicking the physiological conditions found in vivo.
  Discovery of chemical and biological tools to probe hypoxic solid tumours
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr J Elies Gomez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells. One avenue towards the development of more selective cancer therapies is to exploit the unique physiological properties of solid tumours using prodrug approaches.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  (WIS) Deciphering escape from senescence in vivo
  Prof P Townsend, Prof A D Whetton
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Senescence is a dynamic cellular state characterised by a prolonged and generally irreversible cell-cycle arrest that promotes tissue remodelling but it can also have detrimental implications on regenerative capacities of tissues and conduce to inflammation and the progression of ageing-related disease including cancer.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Computational modelling of skin absorption of chemicals
  Dr T Chen, Prof G Lian
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin is a complex organ of human body with multilayer tissues and multiple components such as sweat ducts and glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles.
