  Development of a rapid screening method for Carbapenemase-resistant Enterobacteriaceae using volatile and non-volatile metabolite profiles
  Dr S Fowler, Dr T Felton, Dr W Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nosocomial infections caused by Enterobacteriaceae are a major concern to clinicians. Species include Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Enterobacter cloacae, all of which are prevalent in ventilator-associated pneumonia.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

The question seems trivial but remains largely unresolved. The present project aims to address the question using different approaches.
  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
