  (BBSRC DTP CASE) High Pressure Biocatalysis: generating generic and scalable approaches to biocatalysis using engineered enzymes
  Dr S Hay, Prof A Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Oxidation reactions play a key role in the bulk chemical industry and enzyme-mediated biocatalysis offers an alternative to the use of traditional catalysts, which can suffer from poor chemical selectivity and require the use of harsh reaction conditions and produce hazardous waste products.
  Solvent-free Enzyme Biofluids for Non-aqueous Biocatalysis
  Dr A Brogan
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Our society has an increasing demand for the fuels, plastics, and other essential chemicals that support our modern way of life. This growing energy requirement is in direct competition with the need to better protect our environment to mitigate the ongoing climate change we are experiencing.
  (BBSRC DTP) Towards vibrational control of enzymes for biotechnology and biocatalysis
  Dr S Hay, Prof N Scrutton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project is firmly embedded at the interface of chemistry, biology and physics, a key driver for BBSRC in the ‘Exploiting new ways of working’ agenda.
  (BBSRC DTP) Probing the chemistry of the prenylated flavin cofactor: Synthesis, mechanistic probes, and biocatalysis
  Prof D Procter, Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This cross-disciplinary project fuses chemical synthesis and mechanism, structural biology, computational (bio)chemistry and cutting-edge biotechnology in a highly innovative approach to the development of new biocatalytic processes of interest to industry and addresses the BBSRC’s strategic research priority, Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding and Harnessing Enzymes for Organosilicon Chemistry
  Dr L Wong, Dr S De Visser, Dr P Quayle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As a project that traverses the boundaries of the physical and life sciences, the student will learn skills in a. wide range of areas.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Driving enzymatic carboxylation using supercritical CO2
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay, Prof I Larrosa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The use of CO2 as a chemical feedstock is attractive for various reasons, not least as a means to address the desirable reduction of global CO2 levels.
  (BBSRC DTP) Biofuel synthesis from enzymes: how do charge distributions affect product control?
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
One of this project ‘s strengths is the novel computational technology it introduces to the paramount field of biocatalysis. Any quantum mechanical insight into enzymes is initially holistic in character, that is, energies and electron densities are calculated for the whole systems.
  (BBSRC DTP) Design and Evolution of Enzymes with Non-Canonical Organocatalytic Mechanisms
  Dr A Green, Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project is firmly embedded at the interface of chemistry, biology and biophysics, a key driver for the BBSRC in the ‘Exploiting new ways of working’ agenda.
  (BBSRC DTP) Making small talk: Using chemistry to send messages across cell membranes
  Dr S Webb, Dr J Gough, Dr A Green, Prof N Turner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will combine three areas with distinct skillsets, namely cell biology, industrial biotechnology and synthetic chemistry, adding interdisciplinary training to core skills in the latter two areas.
  Development of engineered carboxylic acid reductases (CARs) for efficient synthesis of amides from amines and carboxylic acids
  Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Background – AstraZeneca has provided a set of real world targets for demonstration of the benefits of biocatalysis in synthetic strategies.
