Determining tumour state using DNA methylation

This project is a collaboration between three research groups. Prof Skirmantas Kriaucionis research group aims to elucidate the molecular function of DNA modifications in normal cells, leading to the understanding of how defective pathways contribute to the neoplasia. Read more

Molecular mechanisms of action and basis of resistance to hypomethylating agents in cancer

The student will be supervised by two supervisors. Prof Skirmantas Kriaucionis research group aims to elucidate the molecular function of DNA modifications in normal cells, leading to the understanding of how defective pathways contribute to the neoplasia. Read more

Single Molecule-based Detection of Mutations in Non-clonal cells

This project is a collaboration between two research groups. Prof Skirmantas Kriaucionis research group aims to elucidate the molecular function of DNA modifications in normal cells, leading to the understanding of how defective pathways contribute to the neoplasia. Read more

Why cell position matters in cancer: role of epigenetic factors

Although cancers are highly mutated, it is factors above and beyond those mutations that allow a tumor to form. These factors include epigenetic gene programs embedded within the cell of origin (Baggiolini, et al, Science 2021). Read more

In situ analysis of the T-cell receptor repertoire in colorectal cancer

As cancer cells divide their DNA accumulates new mutations, some of which will lead to the generation of neoantigens – mutant peptides that can be recognised by immune cells as non-self. Specific (neo)antigen recognition is mediated by T cell receptors (TCRs), which are encoded by a hypervariable sequence that is unique to a TCR clone.

Viral regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses and possess a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long been used as a tool to dissect the molecular basis of key biological processes such as growth, differentiation and death. Read more

PhD Studentship (3 years) In Vivo Diagnosis of Paediatric Brain Tumours using Multi-Modal Clinical MRI and Machine Learning

Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by Help Harry Help Others (HHHO) and the College of Health and Life Sciences, to be undertaken within the Artificial Intelligence in Paediatric Neuroimaging (AIPNI) Research Group at Aston University. Read more

Investigating novel molecular regulators of the brown adipocyte programme

Brown adipose tissue is an enigmatic tissue that plays an important role in energy metabolism. The increasing prevalence of obesity-related disorders has led to a growing need for therapeutic strategies to reverse diet-induced weight gain. Read more

Synthetic transition metal catalysts for the treatment of cancer

Working the interfaces of chemical catalysis, analytical chemistry, cellular biology, pharmacology and medicine, this project provides unique interdisciplinary training in the skills required for the development of a pre-clinical metal-based therapy. Read more

Using novel ferronucleosides to study and regulate DNA replication in cells

Background. Replication of nucleic acid polymers like DNA is an essential process for all known forms of life. Furthermore, dysregulation and errors in DNA-replication are strongly linked with human diseases including cancer, as well as the process of cellular ageing. Read more
