Use of tumour associated antigen nanoformulations to drive potent anti-tumour CD4 and CD8 T cell responses

  Research Group: The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research
Second Supervisor. Professor Ed Lavelle (TCD). Studentship between QUB and TCD to investigate the application of nanoparticles to produce novel anti-cancer vaccines. Read more

Laser Driven Neutron Sources at High Repetition Rate

Despite the high demand for neutron sources in a wide range of applications from material science to health-care [1, 2], the number of accessible neutron sources has decreased in the last years due to the phasing out of nuclear research reactors. Read more

Investigating spatial variations in cancer incidence rates using geographic information systems.

  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
An interdisciplinary PhD project using geographic information systems (GIS) data-driven approaches to investigate geospatial patterns in cancer incidence and their possible underlying environmental determinants to inform primary prevention. Read more

Capturing the agronomic, economic and carbon benefits of new clover varieties into a Carbon Profit Index

Project aims. To create a Carbon-Profit Index (CPI) comprising a new agronomic assessment protocol that reduces the carbon footprint (CF) of managed grass/clover swards while protecting the economic value (EV) and sustainability of grassland farming. Read more

Three-dimensional structural mapping of the retinal neurovascular unit and the influence of diabetes

The aim of this PhD project is to better understand why people with diabetes are at risk of losing their vision. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in developed countries. Read more

Using computational biology and transcriptional data to identify signaling that contributes to cancer progression

  Research Group: The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research
Our group is looking to recruit a PhD candidate, with experience of working with molecular datasets, with an interest in performing translational bioinformatics analyses to understand the nuanced and complex interactions between cancer cells and their microenvironment for major emerging clinical tumour subtypes. .

Using epigenetic modifiers in combination with 5-FU based chemotherapy to elicit tumour specific immune responses and immunogenic cell death in colorectal cancer.

HDAC inhibitors (HDACi) are an emergent class of epigenetic modifying agent (EMA), with multi-modal mechanisms-of-action in both tumour and tumour microenvironment (TME). This project aims to understand how these drugs modulate efficacy of 5-FU-based chemotherapy to counteract transcriptional plasticity and immune evasion that underpins emergence of treatment resistance.

Targeting the ‘Worst of the Worst’ – developing novel treatments for Poor Outcome Triple Negative Breast Cancers.

We will investigate biology driving the aggressive features of Poor Outcome Triple Negative Breast Cancers (PO-TNBCs). PO-TNBCs possess the worst outcomes amongst all breast cancers, with high rates of metastases and chemoresistance. Read more

Local protein synthesis in angiogenesis

This proposal aims to investigate how localised mRNA translation within endothelial cells regulates blood vessel formation. Angiogenesis, or the emergence of new blood vessels, is a complex biological process that involves the coordinated migration of endothelial cells. Read more
