We have 19 bacterial proteins PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Host-pathogen interactions of bacterial membrane proteins

In this age of increasing antimicrobial resistance, bacterial infections remain a major global health burden. During infection, bacterial pathogens deliver virulence proteins into the host cells. Read more

How does the dynamic intra-membrane aggregation of phage lysis proteins kill bacterial pathogens?

This is an interdisciplinary project. It will provide a unique opportunity to obtain training in a wide range of interdisciplinary skills, including protein engineering techniques, protein purification, atomic force microscopy, neutron reflection and scattering as well as molecular dynamics simulations. Read more

Self-funded PhD- Understanding the molecular mechanism of a bacterial genome defence system and its synergy with CRISPR-Cas

Prokaryotes have evolved over billions of years alongside their viruses, the bacteriophages, or “phages”. To prevent viral infection, prokaryotes have evolved rudimentary immune mechanisms, the most widespread and well-studied of which are the Restriction-Modification and the CRISPR-Cas enzymes. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Structure and function of enzyme complexes involved in post-transcriptional gene regulation

Many proteins in human cells function as part of high molecular weight multi-subunit assemblies. The structure and function of such large molecular machines is often difficult to characterise due to their complexity, low abundance and structural dynamics. Read more

Understanding how electrical communication can regulate metabolic cycles in bacteria biofilms

Project Overview. A biofilm is a robust form of bacteria colony resistant to antibiotics. They have significant impacts on a multitude of industries impacting health and industrial processes such as in food production and water security. Read more

Understanding the evolution of gene regulatory networks through biophysical modelling and machine learning

The ability to coordinate the expression of genes within a cell is at the heart of life. When and how much of a specific gene is turned into a protein is essential for organisms to respond to their environment and to manage resources. Read more

Discovery and functional investigation of the shared molecular mechanisms of host immunoregulation by the pathogens that cause malaria and sepsis.

Infectious diseases cause enormous humanitarian and economic burdens worldwide. Designing interventions that prevent, cure, or control many infections is difficult because pathogens have evolved sophisticated ways of subverting host immunity. Read more
