About the Project
The project is to determine the importance of AM signalling in a rare cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, Sezary Syndrome, and will involve a range of techniques from assessment of receptor expression in Sezary cells and tissues, measurement of the effect of antagonists on signalling pathways, functional oncology assays in vitro, and finally in vivo studies using murine models of Sezary Syndrome.
This work has the potential to influence the choice of first clinical indication for trials of our small molecule antagonist, and will provide a training in a range of transferrable skills in a well-funded and enthusiastic group of academics, postdocs and students with a wide experience in successful supervision of PhD studies.
This is available as a self-funded project. In addition to fees and student living expenses, the work requires bench fee support of £12,000 p.a.
Candidates must have a first or upper second class honors degree or significant research experience. (add any additional requirements here)
