  Characterisation of the genotype and phenotype of epithelial cells invaded by the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis.
  Dr S Whawell, Dr G Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of the Gram negative anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis is consistently associated with the more severe forms of periodontal disease and its ability to invade host epithelial cells is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  The oral microbiome, ROS and the development of oral cancer: a role in Fanconi anemia?
  Prof K Hunter, Dr S Collis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA) develop cancers of the mouth, esophagus or anogential region. A number of reasons have been suggested, but the millions of bacteria that are naturally resident in these body sites might be a significant contributory factor.
  Modelling the epigenome in oral dysplasia and early invasive carcinoma
  Prof K Hunter, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The key molecular events which lead to the development of premalignant oral lesions and their progression to oral cancer are still poorly understood.
  The Role of Fusion Genes Tumourigenesis
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Salivary gland tumours are uncommon but have a varied and complex pattern of histopathological features.
  Does fatty acid uptake by oral cancer cells drive metastasis?
  Dr C Murdoch, Dr H Colley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cell surface receptor CD36 belongs to a large scavenger receptor family that primarily bind lipid-containing molecules. Until recently their expression was thought to be restricted to macrophages and endothelial cells but recent data suggest that epithelial cancer cells may also express this receptor.
  Struggling for independence? Health practices of young adults living in the parental home.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Within a number of industrialised, and post- industrialised nations such as the UK, there are strong cultural narratives that associate autonomous adulthood with independent living, away from the parental home.
