  Self-management in burns aftercare: exploratory research
  Dr J Mathers, Dr I Litchfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Some 250,000 individuals sustain burns in the UK every year with the potential of lasting impact on appearance, and psychological, social, and physical functioning.
  Understanding depression and treatment in South Asian (Pakistani/Indian/Bangladeshi) populations
  Dr Q Fazil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3-year fully-funded/self-funded PhD Studentship. A PhD project with Dr Qulsom Fazil will focus on understanding the expression of depression and social treatment approaches of recovery in people from South Asian backgrounds.
  BIRM-CAM: Bringing Innovative Research Methods to Clustering Analysis of Multimorbidity
  Dr C Yau, Prof T Marshall, Dr K Nirantharakumar
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Multimorbidity is when people suffer from more than one long-term illness.
  The importance of the DNA damage response in neurodegeneration
  Dr R Tuxworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA damage occurs in early-stage neurodegenerative diseases. The response of neurons to the damage may contribute to disease progression by inducing senescence, cell-cycle and apoptosis.
  The Role of LIM Domain Only Proteins in Neuroblastoma
  Dr M Hoogenkamp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Person Specification. An Upper Second Class Honours Degree (or equivalent) in a relevant study or Master’s degree is expected. Prior experience in cell and molecular biology is an advantage.
  Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy
  Prof Dirk-Peter Herten, Dr I Styles
Application Deadline: 29 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation plays an important role in the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. The modulation of inflammation and immunity by CD4+ regulatory T-cells has therefore received increasing attention.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  Investigating how ovarian tumours avoid immune responses in cancer patients
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Determining the translational potential of the highly phosphorylated proto-oncogene PBF
  Dr V Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to translate the many molecular alterations now detectable in human tumours into effective clinical management we need to fully understand their impact on tumour biology.
