  Characterisation and evaluation of anti-biofilm complexes on biofilms in reference to wound and medical devices related infections
  Prof M Camara, Prof S Percival
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Project Overview. Biofilms that grow on medical devices and within both acute and chronic wounds represent a major concern to healthcare.
  The interaction of bacterial biofilms with immune cells.
  Dr L Martinez-Pomares
Applications accepted all year round
Second Supervisor. Miguel Camara/Paul Williams. Project Overview. P. aeruginosa (PA) is emerging as major opportunistic pathogen of clinical relevance.
  Biofilm Engineering for Healthcare Applications
  Dr AF Taylor, Dr E Karunakaran
Applications accepted all year round
Biofilms are communities of microorganisms bound to surfaces by a layer of glue-like extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). They can be found virtually everywhere, from water pipes and food packaging to medical devices and human tissues.
  Novel approaches to detect and treat Pseudomonas aeruginosa antibiotic resistant biofilms in cystic fibrosis
  Prof M Camara, Dr L Martinez-Pomares
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Project Overview. Cystic fibrosis patients are regularly colonised by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) which avoids the impact of the immune system and antibiotic therapy through the formation of biofilms.
  Discovery and development of carbohydrate active enzymes (CAZymes) for degradation of plant pathogenic biofilms
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Discovery and development of carbohydrate active enzymes (CAZymes) for degradation of plant pathogenic biofilms. Xylella fastidiosa and Erwinia amylovora are two agriculturally important quarantine plant pathogens that are capable of destroying anumber of diverse crops.
  Investigating the efficacy of novel antimicrobial mixes on microorganisms, surfaces and cells lines; an integrated study
  Dr A Kelly, Dr S Schwikkard, Prof D Wertheim
Applications accepted all year round
The projection that within 50 years there will be more deaths from antimicrobial resistance than through cancer highlights the continual need for mining new and novel antimicrobials with activity against planktonic microbes and biofilms alike1.
  To experimentally determine the environmental influences acting on P. aeruginosa virulence factor expression in biofilms and understand the catalytic mechanism of one of them (the surface tethered aminopeptidase AaaA)
  Dr K Hardie
Applications accepted all year round
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important opportunistic pathogen. It is a problem for the immunocompromised and has attained superbug notoriety since it is evident in hospitals and has inherent resistance to antibiotics.
  New antimicrobial agents for biofilm-related infections
  Dr K Fairfull-Smith
Applications accepted all year round
The adhesion of bacteria to surfaces and their subsequent ability to aggregate into colonies called biofilms is a significant problem in healthcare systems around the world.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Novel microbes and their biochemistry in C. elegans
  Prof S Mani
Applications accepted all year round
The Mani Laboratory @The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, INC has an open position for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to be part of an expanding research program on novel aspects of the microbial biofilms and C.
