  Using synthetic biology to harness biopharmaceuticals from microorganisms
  Dr F Alberti, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the bioactive molecules used in agriculture and medicine are made by microorganisms. For instance, penicillin and cephalosporin antibiotics come from fungi and represent together 47% ($19.8 billion) of the global antibiotic market.
  Engineering Immune Cell Surfaces
  Prof I Gibson, Dr D Mitchell
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the past decade there has been a revolution in therapeutics with protein and cell based therapies emerging to supplement traditional ‘small molecule’ drugs.
  Microbial bioprocessing and functional magnetic nanomaterials
  Dr AFC Fernandez-Castane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to be undertaken within the Aston Institute of Materials Research (AIMR) and the Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) groups.
  Multiscale dynamic visualisation framework for industrial mutants design and biological knowledge discovery
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Current industrial bio-production processes exclusively uses yeast and bacteria as the microorganism hosts to synthesise valuable commercial compounds.
  Fabrication of tuneable biomaterial composites (Ref: SF20/APP/ZHANG)
  Dr M Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a polysaccharide hydrogel with many fascinating material properties (e.g. High tensile strength, high water holding capacity, biocompatibility, etc.).
  Genetic and non-genetic factors involved in risk of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr R Pazoki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Investigation of in vitro phage therapy with free and encapsulated phage targeting S. aureus infection in human cells
  Dr A Sagona, Dr DJ Malik, Prof D Roper
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages or phages are viruses that can target their host bacteria with great specificity. Due to their small genome, they are excellent tools for genetic engineering 1.
  Immunoproteasomes as novel therapeutic targets in neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr Y Ye
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the UK DRI Centre at Imperial in the research group of Dr Yu Ye (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/yu.ye1).
  Induced pluripotent stem-cell (iPSC) reprogramming in bone and blood cancers (Ref:SF20/APP/PAL)
  Dr D Pal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

iPSC (somatic cells reprogrammed to an embryonic-stem-cell-like state) are not only a means of patient relevant disease modelling, but de-differentiation of terminal cells to their primitive precursors often reveal aberrations in tissue development.
  High-throughput discovery of combination therapies and engineering of CRISPR/therapeutic proteins
  Dr A Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab is interested in developing and applying state-of-the-art combinatorial genetics technologies to decipher the mechanisms behind complex diseases, including cancers and neurodegenerative disorders, and discover novel combination therapies.
