  Engineering the skeletal muscle stem cell niche using microporous tissue engineering constructs
  Dr A G Borycki
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Background. Satellite cells are skeletal muscle stem cells that reside in a specific micro-environment called the niche and are responsible for muscle repair upon injury or diseases.
  Developing preclinical models for cancer therapeutics using biomaterials and omics technologies
  Prof A Nicolaou, Dr A Tirella
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrogels are biomaterials used to prepare in vitro models used to study many biological processes. These materials can be selectively modified to present different physical, chemical and mechanical properties to mimic the ones of the extracellular matrix present in different tissues.
  Novel photoinitiators for light-activated resin-based biomaterials
  Prof W Palin, Dr R M Shelton, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
The future of photoactive material technology will play an important role in biomaterials applications from drug delivery and laser activated surgical adhesives to resin-based composite dental restoratives.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting plant diversity to make a new biomaterials
  Prof S Turner, Prof V Allan, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics synthesised from fossil fuels.
  Using biomaterials and 3D bioprinting to model the neurovascular unit in dementia
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, cerebrovasculature and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Developing novel synthetic biology tools for next generation biologics and biomaterial manufacturing
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr Baojun Wang
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
The advances in synthetic biology have now enabled us to generate new tools for producing customized protein-based biologics or biomaterials by unlocking the potential of non-natural living materials.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Smart protein networks: exploiting enzyme mediated chemical cross-linking towards novel biomaterials
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr L Dougan, Dr D Brockwell, Dr M E Webb
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Proteins are bionanomachines, acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, performing their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Bioactive Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine aim to either replace diseased or damaged tissue with a functional, laboratory-grown substitute, or stimulate the body’s own cells in order to promote repair.
  Optimisation of mesenchymal stem cell interactions with photoactive materials for dental and orthopaedic repair
  Prof W Palin, Dr R M Shelton, Dr P Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
For repair and replacement of dental tissue, “photoactive” biomaterials offer significant benefits since light curing provides a fully controllable setting mechanism of a single paste system, which requires no mixing by the surgeon.
