A 3 year British Lung Foundation PhD studentship is available to work with Dr Stefan Marciniak in the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research October 2011.
Malignant mesothelioma is an incurable cancer caused by asbestos exposure. We have observed elevated endoplasmic reticulum stress in human malignant mesothelioma tissue. We hypothesize that this affects tumour growth and survival and thus represents a potential drug target. The aim of this PhD project is to determine the effect of endoplasmic reticulum stress on malignant mesothelioma growth in vitro in order to identify potential therapeutic targets. The student will be trained in a variety of cell biological and biochemical techniques with wide applicability to life sciences research.
Application Deadline is 1 August 2011
