Cardiff University invites applications for PhD studentship in immunology for international students. Candidates must have at least a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent in a related biological science. Candidates with previous laboratory experience are particularly encouraged. This studentship consists of full UK/EU tuition fees, as well as a Doctoral Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,057 p.a. for 2015/16, updated each year). Additional funding of the value £10,000 for consumables is available. The application deadline is 21 October 2015.
Studentship is provided in Immunology: Development of immune-modulators for preventing immune suppression by cancer-associated T-cells at the Cardiff University.
Development of immune-modulators for preventing immune suppression by cancer-associated T-cells. Cancer is a major area of unmet clinical need. Immunotherapies to treat cancer were voted the breakthrough of year, 2013, by Science magazine. T-cells are highly specific, and extremely potent, and could be used to target cancer with minimal side effects. However, suppressive T-cell responses can halt cancer reactivity. The soluble molecules and monoclonal antibodies that we will explore in this study will have therapeutic potential for cancer that may address some of the shortcomings of current treatments.
