Postgraduate supervision

Applications from prospective PhD or MSc by Research (MRes) students wishing to join Dr Nikitenko's research group and thriving postgraduate community at the School of Life Sciences are welcome at any time.

In particular, Dr Nikitenko invites expression of interest and applications in the following areas of research.

- Novel molecular mechanisms regulating endothelial cells differentiation, angiogenesis and lymphatic function in health and disease.

- G-protein coupled receptors as targets for imaging and therapy in cardiovascular disease, cancer and lymphoedema.

- Next generation sequencing and bioinformatics approaches to study endothelial and cancer cell biology.

- Three-dimensional models and gene editing to study the role for tumour microenvironment in cancer progression.

- Vasoactive and angiogenic peptides and their receptors.

- Matricellular proteins and their role in cancer progression and resistance to therapies.

- Lymphatic system and pathogenesis of lymphedema.

- Cancer progression and resistance to targeted (including anti-angiogenic) therapies in renal carcinoma and sarcoma.

- Intra- and inter-tumour heterogeneity.
