  EMBLA Project - Alternative splicing, intrinsically disordered regions and higher-order complex formation
  Dr R Weatheritt
Applications accepted all year round
More than 90% of human genes undergo alternative splicing, the process by which multiple, distinct transcript and protein variants are expressed from a single gene (Weatheritt et al., 2016).
  Fully funded project in Australia - Determining the link between gut microbiome and blood pressure
  Dr F Marques
Applications accepted all year round
Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for both Australian and international students through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  Activation of targeted DNA Damage Response as a novel therapy for Ovarian Cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round
High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is the most common and aggressive subtype of ovarian cancer and accounts for 70% of all ovarian cancer deaths.
  Characterize the role of Treacle (TCOF1) in AKT-regulated ribosome biogenesis
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr J Kang
Applications accepted all year round
Ribosomes are essential for cell growth and proliferation, and their biogenesis requires exquisite regulation.
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round
A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to starve cancer: Identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer
  Dr K Brown, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Development of targeted therapy for acute myeloid leukaemia with mutations in isocitrate dehysdrogenase
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round
Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) is an aggressive disease with poor prognosis and development of novel treatment options is urgently needed.
  Elucidating the protein interaction network of serum- and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase 1 (SGK1)
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Exploration of novel approaches to anti-cancer treatment: manipulation of mutant p53
  Prof Y. Haupt, Dr S. Haupt
Applications accepted all year round
P53 is the most mutated gene in human cancer, affecting about half the cases of human cancer. We have recently identified novel regulators of mutant p53 using sophisticated loss of function whole genome high through put screen (image 1).
