MRC-funded PhD position to study Wnt signalling in gastric cancer at the LSI Exeter (Sep 2023)

Posted by , on 12 September 2022

Location: Living Systems Institute, Exeter

Closing Date: 6 November 2022

Gastric cancer is a multifactorial disease causing over a million deaths yearly. Deregulation of oncogenic cell signalling, such as the Wnt signalling pathway, leads to tumour growth and metastasis. In this project, the student will apply novel microfluidic tools to decipher the function of Wnt signal spreading and activation in the tumour microenvironment to develop effective new therapeutics to combat
gastric cancer.
