  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Development of Novel Tools to Determine how Aberrant V(D)J Recombination Reactions Cause Leukaemia
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination generates a highly diverse set of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes to enable vertebrates to fight a vast range of infections.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Molecular approaches to modulate antibody receptor signalling in autoimmunity
  Dr J Robinson, Prof A Morgan
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autoantibody-mediated inflammatory diseases are characterised by a proinflammatory feedback loop which leads to the destruction of tissues, prolonged pain, fatigue and subsequent reduction in life quality.
  Role of cellular exosomes in the onset of immune mediated tissue damage
  Dr F Del Galdo
Application Deadline: 5 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scleroderma (SSc) is an interferon-mediated chronic autoimmune diseases with the highest morbidity and mortality among rheumatologic conditions.
  Understanding drug-resistance in myeloid cancer
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
