  Mechanistic Study of Molecular Assembly for Drug and Gene Delivery
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round
Despite numerous advances over the past several decades, effective drug and gene delivery with high efficiency, low toxicity and cell targeting remains challenging.
  Development of Gene Therapy and Gene Editing for Lung Disorders: the translation of new gene therapies to the clinic, including the development of new vectors, and evaluation in animal models of disease.
  Dr D Gill, Dr S Hyde
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
The Gene Medicine Research Group is based in the John Radcliffe Hospital and is focused on the development of new gene therapeutics for lung diesases.
  Magnetic-silk Core-shell Nanoparticles for Targeted Drug and Gene Delivery
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round
Silk is a protein fibre produced by silkworm. It has been used for centuries because of its unique properties.
  Airway, Liver and Muscle Gene Transfer to Create Therapeutic Protein Factories: utilising experience of in vivo gene transfer and/or in vivo gene editing to understand and manipulate the factors required for effective expression and secretion of therapeutic proteins
  Dr S Hyde, Dr D Gill
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We are focusing on strategies to deliver therapeutics via in vivo delivery of gene transfer vectors to generate ectopic “protein factories” capable of secreting therapeutic proteins into both the lung lumen and the systemic circulation.
  Peptide Self-assembling for Biomedical Applications
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round
Designed short peptides can self-assemble into different nanostructures (such as nanovesicles and nanofibrils) through weak interactions and have a variety of applications.
  NIR Light-triggered delivery of viral vectors for gene therapies
  Dr S Jones
Applications accepted all year round
This project looks to develop a platform technology that utilises external stimuli, such as light for the triggered polymer un-coating of viral vectors for in-vivo targeted delivery.
  Vascular-targeted gene therapy to block proliferation of smooth muscle cells using a novel adenovirus vector
  Prof A Baker, Dr D E Newby
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Many strategies have emerged to improve the function of the blood vessel wall following acute injury, including targeting endothelial cell function, vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration and adventitial progenitor cells.
  First steps towards gene therapy for congenital bladder disease
  Dr N Roberts, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round
In the congenital disease urofacial syndrome (UFS), urinary bladder voiding is incomplete due to poor co-ordination between detrusor muscle contraction and bladder outlet relaxation.
  Dual-Action Anti-Cancer Drug Delivery Vehicles
  Prof D K Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer is a challenging disease target, and requires wide-ranging strategies for intervention. Given the difficulties in treating recalcitrant tumours, multi-mode therapies are of significant potential value.
