  Integrating chemocatalysis and biocatalysis to create new synthetic pathways (iCBPATH)
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof M Greaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we aim to combine the power of enzymatic C-H bond functionalisation and transition metal catalysis to construct complex molecules in a single reaction providing new, more efficient and rapid routes to pharmaceuticals and other essential products.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
  Enhancing stability of biocatalyst for fuel cells and bioelectrocatalysis
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in biotechnology over the last two decades has greatly increased the use of biocatalyst in the industrial production of fine chemicals.
  Printing biocatalysts (Ref: SF20/APP/PERRY2)
  Prof J Perry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of enzymes to perform exquisitely selective chemical reactions is key part of the synthetic chemist’s toolbox. Being able to discover, optimize and then effectively use and reuse suitable enzymes are the key tasks in the development of a biocatalytic process.
  Design, Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of novel inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway with potential application as immune oncology agents
  Dr R Whitehead, Dr K Finegan, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small molecule inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway often possess interesting biological properties with many displaying potent anti-proliferative activity towards cancer cell lines.
  Establishing NMR chemical shifts as reliable reporters of atomic charge distributions in enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Prof P Popelier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are not only central to life but also to the growing need to harness elements of the natural world to the benefit of mankind.
  EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership: Complex Biological Products Manufacture

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological products and their manufacture are progressing to unparalleled levels of complexity. Examples include engineered biocatalysts, antibody-drug conjugates, multivalent vaccines and cellular therapies.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Bioinspired filomicelles for the effective delivery of antibiotics
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Antibiotics are drugs that are used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria modify their response to antibiotics, making them less effective or even redundant.
