Skin & soft tissues infections (SSTIs) among people who inject drugs (PWID) are a substantial health problem.[1] They result from the difficulties in maintaining good injection practice and hygiene in the environments were illicit psychoactive drugs (such as heroin) are typically consumed.
  Investigating the mechanism of action of dual antiangiogenic/ antineoplastic drugs using organotypic co-culture of fibroblasts and endothelial cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Elies Gomez, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  Formulation of poorly-soluble drugs
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poorly water-soluble drugs is an important class of pharmaceutical compounds that are finding numerous applications for the therapy of different pathological conditions.
  Bioorthogonal Chemistry and Fluorescent Post-Labeling for Real-Time Tracking of a Platinum-based Anticancer Drug
  Dr D Griffith, Dr D O’Shea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-based drugs have a wide range of medicinal applications and are routinely used clinically as therapeutic and diagnostic agents.
  Identifying typologies of General Practitioners’ through analysis of prescribing decisions
  Prof T Marshall
Application Deadline: 31 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has been demonstrated that used Facebook users’ “likes” can be used to reliably identify their personality characteristics and preferences.[1] This project proposes to use general practitioners’ (GPs’) prescribing decisions to characterise their treatment preferences and provide insights into variation in clinical behaviour between clinicians.
  Investigating anti-metastatic drugs in human melanoma cells
  Dr S Vass, Prof M Rae
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Background. Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis, associated with the chronic skin condition psoriasis, which causes joint inflammation.
  Development of Novel 3D-Printable Chemical Reaction and Separations Technologies for Continuous Flow Synthesis of Drugs
  Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years flow chemistry and continuous manufacturing have been the object of increasing interest in the pharmaceutical industry.
  In vitro assessment of drug sequestration into lysosomes and in silico prediction of implications for drug disposition and therapeutic efficacy
  Dr A Galetin, Dr D Hallifax
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular concentration of a drug is an important determinant of its efficacy, toxicity, and potential drug-drug interactions [1].
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
