  Bio-plastic for Food packing
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
The aim of this project is to investigate a new means of producing fully biodegradable bioplastics for food packaging using CO2 and Agri-food waste as feedstock.
  Food insecurity, risk and resilience in low income households
  Research Group: Food security and cold storage
  Dr E Frew, Prof J Bryson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019

  Developing a molecular toolkit for breeding of the black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Insects can provide a source of protein for animal feed and other high value products. There has been minimal research on the selection of insect populations with desirable traits for use in this emerging industry.
  Development of formulations incorporating functional excipients for the oral delivery of insecticidal peptides/dsRNA into insect pests
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Most insecticidal peptide toxins are not active or with diminished activity when taken orally, which hampered their practical use to control insect pests.
  Evaluation of the properties of organic substrates following use in insect bioconversion systems
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Following development of insect larvae organic rearing substrates can be used as fertilisers. The properties of this remaining substrate are poorly defined and functional claims have been made without robust evidence.
  Integrated sensing technologies for rapid tree health assessment
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
UK tree health is under pressure from invasive pests/diseases and climate change. Monitoring is required to understand ecological impacts and for public safety.
  Investigating the potential of Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry (REIMS) using the iKnife for real-time identification of quarantine pest
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
The first line of defence against the movement of pathogens/pests across borders is the inspection service, who look for quarantine organisms which they send to the laboratory for identification.
