  Prof P Murchie, Dr J Allan, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Scottish people living further from key healthcare facilities have less chance of prompt cancer diagnosis and poorer cancer survival than those living closer-by[1].

  Dr M Nath, Prof A Welch, Dr F McKiddie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining advanced imaging technologies with patient-level characteristics, it is now feasible to diagnose, monitor and evaluate the prognosis of cancer patients and adopt appropriate treatment strategies tailored to individual patient leading to the concept of personalised medicine.

  Dr J He, Dr Y Masannat, Prof D Lurie
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate, optimise and extend quantitative oxygen extraction fraction mapping based on oxygen enriched air inspiration and magnetic resonance (MR) relaxometric imaging for human application.
  Telomere integrity: How do Replication Factor C-like complexes maintain telomere length?
  Dr T Kubota, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres, the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, play an essential role in protecting linear DNA from degradation. Derailed telomere regulation causes genome instability and has been implicated in increased rates of cellular senescence and many diseases, including cancer.

  Dr B Hu, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA of all organisms must be compacted in order to store a large amount of genetic information in one cell. Compaction must be regulated to allow access of DNA replication or transcription machinery, but to enable suitable condensation for effective chromosome segregation into two daughter cells at mitosis.
