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

High resolution determination of multi-species biofilm development on medical implants

Biofilms are microbial communities that establish themselves on biotic or abiotic surfaces within a protective matrix. The growth of biofilms on implanted medical devices, such as voice prostheses, tracheostomy, or endotracheal tubing, represents a significant global clinical problem. Read more

Engineering bacterial biofilms to protect plants against fungal pathogens

Are you interested in using microbiology and microscopy to visualise plant-microbe interactions?. Bacterial biocontrol agents can provide protection against fungal plant pathogens. Read more

Identifying New Antimicrobials against S. aureus in Chronic Wound Biofilms

Applications are invited for an exciting 4-year fully funded PhD studentship to commence on 1st January 2023. This PhD project is part of a larger cohort of studentships supported by the National Biofilms Innovation Centre Collaborative Training Partnerships Scheme. . Read more

Advanced imaging of particulate–biofilm interactions

Project Context. Applications are invited for a PhD position as a part of a European Research Council (ERC) funded project. Wastewater treatment (WWT) processes that use biofilms as their biocatalyst have been in use for over 100 years. Read more

Polymeric Micro- & Nano- Bubbles for Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bloodstream infection that has mortality rates of 17-46% and is a daily occurrence, with over 12,700 cases in England per year. Read more

Mapping Microbial Cell Interactions on Designer Biomimetic Surfaces

Nature uses sophisticated strategies to control and eradicate microbial cells. A major scientific challenge is to translate these approaches to artificially synthesised systems. Read more

Precision & Personalised Approaches for Treating Cancer

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Over 10 million surgical operations are performed each year in the NHS, with patients increasingly benefiting from minimally invasive approaches with reduced morbidity, quicker return to normal function, and cost savings for the NHS. Read more

Can a bacteria brain play Ping-pong and Go?

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades.
