We have 13 enzyme engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Towards 3D-printing of self-assembled insect-mimetic acoustic structures

Overview. We are seeking excellent candidates for 4-yr PhD and 5-yr masters+PhD scholarships to pursue an exciting interdisciplinary project that will pioneer novel materials enabled by self-assembly and 3D printing with multiple length-scales of complexity to better mimic the functional structures of insect hearing.

New Methods for modelling cofactor-dependent enzyme structure and function

Enzymes are Nature’s catalysts and many used cofactors and/or coenzymes to catalyse their reactions. While AI and homology methods now often allow the useful prediction of protein structure from amino acid sequence, this can be more challenging when the protein/enzyme contain cofactors. Read more

Automated High Throughput Machine Learning-guided Condition Optimisation for Biocatalysis (Ref: CG-AC-2404)

To achieve net zero in chemicals synthesis and production, low energy approaches are critical. Here, biocatalysis provides not just a low-energy solution, but one which can also be highly selective, important in the production of high purity chiral materials such as pharmaceuticals. Read more

Protein engineering enzymes for Industry

Project Overview. We are interested in key features of the protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health. Read more

Enzyme-responsive peptide hydrogels as in situ forming long-acting drug delivery implants

One of the key issues in the treatment and prevention of disease is that patients struggle to adhere to the complex dosage regimens of therapies, which often require multiple dosing at very specific times each day. Read more

Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application globally. However, there has been a steady accumulation of discarded plastics and there is now growing awareness that they present a significant hazard to the natural environment and human health. Read more

Synthesis of anticancer alkaloids

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Luotonin A is a natural occurring plant alkaloid bearing polycyclic quinazolinone. It has shown inhibitory effect towards topoisomerase I (TP1), an enzyme responsible for antibiotic and anticancer. Read more

Photosynthetic Metabolite Exchange (PHOMEX)

Project Description. The aim of PHOMEX is to understand the main limitations of C. 4. plants – dehydration and chilling. Photosynthesis is the primary production of food, supporting human, marine and terrestrial life. Read more

Gastrointestinal modulation using omega-3 and probiotic strategies and its effect on cardio-metabolic health in obese and non-obese populations

Sciences Research Opportunities at the University of East Anglia

UEA is a top tier, research-led university committed to making a substantial impact on global challenges facing society for over 50 years. Read more

Mechanisms underlying the effects of activated protein C (APC) in cardiac muscle

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
APC is an anticoagulant enzyme that also exerts antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, antiapoptotic and a variety of other cytoprotective effects in different tissues, where the mechanism of action is thought to involve the endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) and a protease activated receptor (PAR).
