PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  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.
  Long-Acting Microneedle Delivery Systems
  Dr R Donnelly
Applications accepted all year round

Microneedle arrays are minimally-invasive devices that painlessly, and without drawing blood, penetrate the skin’s stratum corneum barrier.
  Nanoparticles in drug delivery
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr U Kishore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoparticles (NPs) are materials with overall dimensions in the nano scale range (5nm-100nm). Due to their unique physicochemical properties, they have found a wide range of applications and are currently explored as drug and gene delivery vehicles.
  Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents
  Dr Y Mehellou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although cancer therapeutics, mainly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have been extremely useful in the treatment of cancer, this disease is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
