  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round
Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round
Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  High-throughput discovery of novel antibiotics using synthetic microbiology
  Dr R Draheim
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a frequent problem in the treatment of disease caused by several clinical bacterial pathogens. In the European Union, antibiotic-resistant infections kill nearly 25,000 patients and represent a total expenditure of £1.5 billion per year.
  Tracking bacterial porin switching
  Dr G Wagner, Dr S Barry
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major healthcare challenges of the 21st century. It has been estimated that AMR will lead to >10 million deaths per year and >100 trillion USD in lost economic output by 2050, if no immediate action is taken [1].
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridium difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospital and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.

  Determining the Effect of Urbanization on the Prevalence of Antimicrobial Resistance in Aquatic Environments
  Dr E Pagaling, Dr L Avery, Dr R Hough, Dr C W Knapp
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. The threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest challenges to society today. In the EU, ~25,000 patients die annually from an infection with drug-resistant bacteria, resulting in estimated losses of at least EUR 1.5 billion.
  Improving antimicrobial stewardship - Investigating the effects of ultrasonic treatment on bacterial biofilms
  Dr J Shepherd, Dr G Stafford
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The global crisis of the rise in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in bacteria is a widespread problem with potentially serious consequences for worldwide health.
  Discovering new drugs for Mycobacterium abscessus infections in children
  Dr J Cox
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Applications are invited from candidates to undertake a PhD in the field of microbiology.
