CRUK PhD Studentship

University of Birmingham -School of Cancer Sciences
College of Medical & Dental Sciences
'Understanding the function of CTCF recruitment to oncogenic HPV genomes in the complete HPV life cycle'
Lead Supervisor: Dr Jo Parish
Institute: University of Birmingham,
Project duration: 4 years
Funded by: CRUK
Applications are invited to work with Dr. Jo Parish and Dr. Sally Roberts on an exciting 4-year PhD studentship within a collegiate, multidisciplinary and integrated research team. It will involve a period of work in the laboratory of our colleague at the University of Cambridge.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the major cause of cervical cancer, resulting in approximately 200,000 deaths in women worldwide each year. Infection is also associated with the development of head and neck cancers, other anogenital cancers, and persistent genital and skin warts. We have isolated a novel interaction between HPV and the host protein CTCF, and aim to functionally characterise this interaction in the viral life cycle and cancer development.
We hypothesise that HPV recruits CTCF to specific binding sites within the viral genome to control gene expression and completion of the productive virus life cycle. Our aim is to understand the relationship between HPV and CTCF and determine the functional significance of CTCF recruitment in the complete virus life cycle and in malignancy.
