  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Prof P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  TARGETING MITOPHAGY TO REDUCE CHEMOTHERAPY-INDUCED PAIN
  Dr M Maiaru
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is the most commonly reported side effect of chemotherapeutic drugs, affecting quality of life in many cancer patients.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  Molecular Mechanisms of Receptor and Ion Channel Regulation in Pain and Inflammation
  Dr G Cottrell, Dr D Widera, Dr S Amadesi, Dr A McNeish
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Receptors and ion channels are responsible for the transmission of signals across cellular membranes that regulate a plethora of biological and cellular functions.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
