PhD studentship at the Beatson in Glasgow: Exploiting metabolic vulnerability in cancer

Exploiting metabolic vulnerability in cancer

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship project in the molecular imaging laboratory at the CRUK Beatson Institute led by Dr David Lewis. This project will investigate how genetics, microenvironment and cancer cell-of-origin interact to produce metabolic heterogeneity in vivo.  Metabolic phenotypes will be characterised and imaged using a range of metabolic PET tracers produced at the West of Scotland PET Unit.

The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of the world leading centres for cancer metabolism research. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics and in vivo models of cancer.

The goal of the Lewis laboratory is to use positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), genomics and metabolomics to understand metabolic reprogramming in cancer and to apply that knowledge to precision medicine.

For informal enquiries or further details on the project, please email Dr Lewis (David.Lewis@glasgow.ac.uk)

The deadline for application is 11 January 2019
