  The antibacterial activity of egg white
  Prof S C Andrews
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Drs Florence Baron, Sophie Baron, Françoise Nau; Prof Simon Andrews. Despite the impressive anti-bacterial properties exhibited by egg white, a major health issue related to eggs is their contamination with food-borne pathogens, in particular Salmonella Enteritidis.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Development of an antibacterial beeswax wrap using Welsh natural products (Please note the project is for an MPhil)
  Prof L Baillie
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The treatment of long-term ulcers is becoming a major clinical problem, being currently the fourth biggest cost to the NHS in the UK.
  Novel antibiotic candidates against drug-resistant bacteria causing the highest threat to human health
  Prof M Devocelle, Dr D Fitzgerald-Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

‘A post-antibiotic era—in which common infections and minor injuries can kill—far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st century ‘, reported the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2015.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Discovery of small molecules with bactericidal antomycobacterial activity against MDR strains
  Prof A Malkov, Dr G Weaver
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Based on the structure of marine natural products showing some anti-tubercular (bacteriostatic) activity, we identified small molecules that exhibit bactericidal activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other pathogens.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  Manipulating bone tissue regeneration by bivalent cations
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone healing or repair is a biological process that can take weeks to months and patients suffering from bone fractures usually need extended time off work and away from normal activities.

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  Bioinspired nanotopographies to control bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Dr R D'Sa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is predicted that the rise of resistant strains of bacteria and the ever-growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will be the cause of 10 million deaths annually, and will burden the global economy by £64 trillion.
  Nutrient-Mediated Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials
  Dr A Routledge, Prof A-K Duhme-Klair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial resistance to antibiotics is a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market.
