Understanding how oncogenes drive dysregulated cell division in cancer

Cell division is essential for tissue growth and renewal. However, cell divisions within a tissue must be tightly regulated as uncontrolled division leads to overgrowth and ultimately cancer. Read more

Prostate cancer signalling to the bone micro-environment - from molecular characterization to potential novel therapies.

About the Project. Prostate cancer is responsible for over 52,000 cancer diagnoses within the UK per annum, and is the most common cancer in males, accounting for 27% of all new cancer cases diagnosed within men in 2016-2017. Read more

Microalgal Biorefineries

A major contemporary challenge in industrial manufacturing is the development of sustainable production processes. This includes reduced resource consumption and CO2 generation, and energy efficient operations with maximised product outputs. Read more

BBSRC White Rose DTP i CASE Studentship - Engineering a membrane-adapted viral helicase nanopore

A unique opportunity is open to join a research group in the faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health at the University of Sheffield in partnership with Oxford Nanopore Technologies plc (ONT) (. Read more

Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells

Breast cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation. Read more

PhD in evolutionary biology - retracing the origins of C4 photosynthesis in the grass Alloteropsis semialata

During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species. Read more

Understanding the dynamics of microtubule maintenance supporting neuronal longevity

This studentship is focused on understanding the molecular basis of neurodegeneration through the study of microtubules, by applying advanced microscopy approaches (single molecule live-cell imaging) and biochemistry. Read more

Does membrane repair fail to alert the immune system to disease?

The cGAMP-synthase cGAS recognises microbial or self-DNA to activate STING and induce the release of pro-inflammatory molecules. But cytoplasmic DNA is also particularly abundant in cancer cells, under the form of genomic structures called ‘micronuclei’. Read more
