  Design of emulgel drug delivery system of sorbitol derivatives gelators to improve the skin permeability of hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs.
  Dr T Chalati
Applications accepted all year round
Fee Waiver Scholarships for MSc by Research. This project aims to develop an innovative emulgel-based delivery system for delivery of key hydrophobic drugs, cosmeceutical agents and herbal ingredients through dermal or topical routes of administration as well as improving the skin permeability to hydrophilic drugs.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Personalised mitochondrial health: a functional and multi-omic assessment to predict individual susceptibility to hepatotoxicity of antiepileptic drugs
  Dr A Chadwick, Dr A Alfirevic, Dr R Jenkins
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. The realisation that mitochondrial genetics are an important, and under-researched, factor in personalised medicine is growing.
  Identifying new drugs to combat the virulence mechanisms underlying multidrug-resistant typhoid.
  Dr D Humphreys
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Multidrug-resistant typhoid. --------------------------------------------. The world is facing an epidemic of multidrug-resistant (MDR) typhoid fever.
  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
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.
  Defining how cancer cells acquire resistance to microtubule-based drugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr J Welburn, Dr N Carragher
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Taxol (paclitaxel) is a major drug used in the treatment of solid cancers (breast, lung, ovarian, bladder). However, resistance to taxol arises regularly and thus it is critical to find ways to circumvent this resistance.
  New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round
Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
  Chemical modulation of cellular redox balance for cancer treatment
  Dr I Romero-Canelon
Applications accepted all year round
Platinum complexes, cisplatin, oxaliplatin and carboplatin, are the most widely used anticancer drugs. However, these DNA-targeting treatments are a low selectivity approach with deleterious consequences and a high incidence of resistance.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Genetic epilepsy: identifying mechanisms and potential drug treatments, from nematodes to humans
  Prof A Morgan, Prof A Trevelyan, Dr A Ilie
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder that has a major impact on patient mortality, morbidity and quality of life. Clinical management remains extremely problematic, held back both by diagnostic and treatment limitations.
  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
Intracellular concentration of a drug is an important determinant of its efficacy, toxicity, and potential drug-drug interactions [1].
  Psychosocial factors influencing use of performance enhancing drugs in sport and exercise
  Dr I D Boardley
Applications accepted all year round
This project can be offered either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Please email the prospective supervisor for more details.
