The activity of dry powder antibiotics on bacterial biofilms

In the environment, most microbes thrive in biofilms, which are communities of cells that adhere to abiotic or biotic surfaces. These biofilms are involved in 60-80% of infections in humans, with examples including wound infections, endocarditis, and lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. Read more

Are bacteria building toxic biofilms in your gut? (NARBAD_Q22DTP2)

Think of a corroded pipe. Now think of an inflamed gut. These conditions may be caused by similar bacteria. Sulphate reducing bacteria (SRB) are anaerobic bacteria, common in the environment and the gastrointestinal tract. Read more

Nanoparticle-based therapeutics to combat multidrug resistance and biofilms in chronic wound infections

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Read more

Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more

Biofilm disruption as an initial step in a novel strategy for treatment of chronic wounds based on multi-functional liposomal nanocarriers

  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
The cost to the NHS of caring for patients with chronic wounds is conservatively estimated to be £4.5-5.7bn/year, or around 4% of the total expenditure on health. Read more

Understanding how pandemic microbes evolve

  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
Understanding the rules of species evolution is a fundamental question in biology. The emergence, spread and demise of harmful organisms, which can cause pandemics, is particularly important. Read more

EASTBIO Bioengineering novel platforms for one-pot plastic upcycling

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Background. Plastic pollution is a major environmental threat and sequesters carbon-rich materials derived from finite, petrochemical resources. Read more

Community structure, function and degradation potential of the plastisphere microbiome

Requirements. The candidate should have a first class or upper second class honours degree, or a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification), in Biological Sciences with specialization in Microbiology or Molecular Biology. Read more
