Are you keen to progress research in glycoscience at the interface between chemistry, biology and physics, in the first four years of your research career and based outside the UK? Do you want to further your career and attain a PhD in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?.
Heparan sulphates (HS) are complex sulphated polysaccharides expressed at the cell surface. They are essential co-receptors for many proteins, most notably many signalling growth factors, and they act as dynamic regulators of protein function.
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are inherited metabolic disorders caused by the deficiency of specific lysosomal enzymes required for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) where each MPS type lacks a specific enzyme resulting in the build-up of GAGs in all cells of the body.
Project Description. Applications are invited for a PhD position on the Development of purification and modification strategies of N-type glycopeptide and glycan moieties for use as nanoparticle activity enhancers to be carried out under the supervision of Dr.
