  Structure and function of protein complexes of the eukaryotic glycoprotein folding quality control (ERQC) checkpoint enzyme, UGGT
  Dr P Roversi, Dr C Savva
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A wonderfully efficient quality control enzyme in the eukaryotic cell detects and stops glycoproteins that are on the way to be secreted but need time to form properly.
  Computational Enzyme Design for the Development of Biotechnology to Create a new generation of living buildings (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SINGH)
  Dr W Singh
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve the following topics. Plastic breakdown. Computational enzyme design to suggest mutants which may improve the catalytic efficiency of PETase and MHETase for polyethylene terephthalate hydrolysis.
  Development of antiviral peptidomimetic enzyme inhibitors
  Dr L Trembleau, Dr H Deng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that circulate and evolve among various animals. They can cause mild human illnesses such as the common cold or more serious respiratory diseases as seen in the recent outbreaks of SARS (2002), MERS (2012), and COVID-19 (2019).
  Structure based design of angiotensin-converting enzyme (from Anopheles gambiae) inhibitors as mosquitocides
  Prof K R Acharya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquitoes of the Anopheles and Aedes genus are some of the most deadly insects to humans because of their effectiveness as vectors of malaria and a range of arboviruses, including yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile and zika.
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  Development of chemical biology tools to study mammalian O-mannosylation pathways
  Dr L Willems, Prof G Davies
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of chemical biology aims to design and synthesize chemical tools (such as inhibitors, substrate mimics, or enzyme probes) to answer fundamental questions in biology.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
  Developing a electrical-bio interface via a membrane potential activated enzyme
  Dr M Asally, Prof N E Dale
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Across the cell membrane, there is an electrical potential, akin to a buttery. This electrical potential can be used as a means of information processing.
  Development of novel halogenase enzymes for biopharmaceutical applications
  Dr B Menon, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Identification of new halogenated synthetic, natural and non-natural compounds; and further exploitation and synthesis of these compounds are of extreme importance in this modern era.
  USP17 as a cancer therapeutic target
  Dr J Burrows
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

USP17 is over-expressed in a range of primary tumours including NSCLC, breast, colorectal, cervical, ovarian and osteosarcoma and its depletion has been shown to block the growth of cells from all these cancer types.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  MSc by Research Programme: Assessment of plated cryopreserved hepatocytes as a tool to accurately determine the intrinsic clearance of low metabolism compounds
  Dr K Read
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Engineering microbial chemical factories to produce renewable and modified biomaterials
  Dr B Menon, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The polymers, such as plastics are ubiquitous and integral in everyday human life with many applications that varies from medical, transport, electrical, construction and packaging.
  Viral re-wiring of cyanobacterial photosynthesis
  Prof D J Scanlan, Dr A Millard, Dr R Puxty
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygenic photosynthesis is a fundamental biological activity. As well as oxygenating the atmosphere, it is also the basis of all food chains and global carbon cycling via the direct fixation of carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic matter.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
