  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Addressing antimicrobial resistance (AMR): Affimers as therapeutic candidates and tools in antibacterial drug discovery
  Dr A O'Neill, Dr D Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance (AMR) one of the greatest threats to human health, and it is predicted that this phenomenon will kill 10 million people annually by 2050 if not addressed.
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round
Have you ever wondered about self-cleaning surfaces. an object that cleanse itself just by shining light on it? Such technology already exists, and the field is fast developing.
  Developing a smart non-antibiotic cerium-containing biodegradable wound dressing for treating chronic ulcers
  Dr I Ortega, Dr J Shepherd
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The treatment of long-term ulcers is becoming a major clinical problem, being currently the fourth biggest cost to the NHS in the UK.
  Antibiotic Photo Disinfection for Oral health
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round
Oral diseases are the fourth most expensive diseases to treat globally (WHO, 2005), so developing new therapeutic management strategies to address these unmet needs in our population offers considerable public health benefit as well as potential for new product development.
  Antimicrobial coatings for biomedical applications
  Dr M Chen
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Antimicrobial coating industry is rapidly growing. This is to prevent the serious problems caused by bacterial adhesion and subsequent biofilm formation on the surfaces of many devices.
  Investigating the efficacy of novel antimicrobial mixes on microorganisms, surfaces and cells lines; an integrated study
  Dr A Kelly, Dr S Schwikkard, Prof D Wertheim
Applications accepted all year round
The projection that within 50 years there will be more deaths from antimicrobial resistance than through cancer highlights the continual need for mining new and novel antimicrobials with activity against planktonic microbes and biofilms alike1.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round
Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating copper storage in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and its role in pathogenicity
  Prof C Dennison, Dr A De Soyza, Prof C Winstanley
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. This interdisciplinary project bridges world-leading labs with expertise in bacterial cell biology and infection. Novel therapies are needed to overcome increasing antibacterial resistance.
  Elucidating the mechanisms of phospholipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
This project focuses on characterising the fundamental process of outer membrane lipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria, a largely unknown process which is only now being revealed.
