Self Funded PhD Project: Investigations into how chemokine receptors lead to migration of cancerous cells (MUELLER_U16SF)

University of East Anglia

University of East Anglia – School of Pharmacy

Start Date: October 2016.

Supervisor: Dr Anja Mueller,

The Project:

The migration of cancerous cells is controlled by a number of pro-inflammatory macromolecules such as chemokines.  Amongst others, CCR1 and CCR5 together with their ligands play an important role in cancer metastasis. A different chemokine receptor, CXCR4 has been strongly implicated in the metastasis of breast cancer cells.  We plan to investigate the molecular basis of receptor signal transduction in the migration of different cancer cells. Understanding how these receptors lead to cell migration will provide us with novel therapeutic targets which can eventually lead to medicine which can reduce or even prevent cancer metastasis

Entry Requirements:

Applicants should have minimum 2:1 in MPharm, Biological Sciences, Biomedicine, Pharmacology
