Applications from prospective PhD or Masters by Thesis (Research) students wishing to join Dr Nikitenko's research group and thriving postgraduate community at the Centre for Biomedicine at Hull-York Medical School 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 properties and function in health and chronic diseases.
- G-protein coupled receptors as targets for imaging and therapy in cardiovascular disease, cancer, lymphoedema and lung disease.
- Platform science approaches (next generation sequencing, label-free quantitative proteomics, high content imaging and bioinformatics) to study endothelial and cancer cell biology.
- Three-dimensional models and gene editing to study the role for endothelial cells in tumour microenvironment in cancer progression.
- Proteomics of lymphatic endothelial cells.
- Cancer progression and resistance to targeted therapies .
- Early diagnosis and detection of cancer.
