  The effects of risk factor measurement variability on clinical decision-making
  Prof T Marshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical measurements are undertaken to diagnose patients and to determine eligibility for treatment. They are also undertaken to monitor response to treatment.
  Understanding depression and treatment in South Asian (Pakistani/Indian/Bangladeshi) populations
  Dr Q Fazil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3-year fully-funded/self-funded PhD Studentship. A PhD project with Dr Qulsom Fazil will focus on understanding the expression of depression and social treatment approaches of recovery in people from South Asian backgrounds.
  Investigating the regulation of DNA replication by ubiquitylation
  Dr A Gambus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every dividing cell needs to duplicate its genome perfectly before cell division. Failure to do so can result in cell death or development of mutations leading to cancer.
  Investigating the role of lysine methylation in the DNA damage response.
  Dr M Higgs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our genomic DNA is under constant attack from DNA damaging agents, which are a continuing threat to genomic integrity. Defective resolution of DNA damage underlies several human diseases, including haematopoietic abnormalities and developmental disorders as well as cancer.
  Mybl2 in the regulation of cell fate decisions
  Dr P Garcia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the molecular mechanisms regulating cell fate decisions that occur during normal development, somatic reprogramming and cancer.
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  The importance of the DNA damage response in neurodegeneration
  Dr R Tuxworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA damage occurs in early-stage neurodegenerative diseases. The response of neurons to the damage may contribute to disease progression by inducing senescence, cell-cycle and apoptosis.
  The Role of LIM Domain Only Proteins in Neuroblastoma
  Dr M Hoogenkamp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Person Specification. An Upper Second Class Honours Degree (or equivalent) in a relevant study or Master’s degree is expected. Prior experience in cell and molecular biology is an advantage.
  The impact of genomics education on professional practice
  Dr S Buckley, Prof J Parry, Dr H Brown
Application Deadline: 29 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In October 2018, NHS England launched a world leading Genomic Medicine Service that builds on 30+ years’ experience of delivering clinical and laboratory genetic services, and on advances in whole genome sequencing resulting from the 100,000 genomes project.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
