  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Development of novel peptide hydrogel therapies for endometriosis and endometrial cancer
  Prof K Marshall, Prof A Miller, Dr D Fischer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Endometrial cancer and endometriosis are common gynaecological disorders, which arise from the uterine lining. Cancer develops by glandular cell differentiation, whilst implantation and growth of endometrial-like tissue in endometriosis induces a chronic inflammatory reaction causing pain and infertility.
  Iontophoresis to deliver corticosteroids across buccal mucosal using hydrogel as delivery systems
  Prof M Patel, Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Topical delivery of drugs to treat oral mucosal disease is often challenging. This is due to, for example, the saliva washing therapeutic agents away into the gastrointestinal system, the movement of oral structures during mastication and the presence of keratinized oral mucosal surfaces.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Fostering the next generation of molecular diagnostics: 3D microfluidic RNA-sensing hydrogel biosensors for clinical analysis of miRNA biomarkers.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof A Saiani, Dr H Aojula
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be carried out at the interface between academia and industry, in close collaboration with our industrial partner, Manchester BIOGEL Ltd, to facilitate translational development of a novel diagnostic platform by bridging the gap between a scientific discovery and its future commercialisation.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round
Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Multiscale Determinants of Myocardial Mechanics
  Dr D Nordsletten
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor. Dr David Nordsletten. Second Supervisor. Professor Reza Razavi. Understanding the health and function of heart muscle is critical to the assessment of a range of cardiac pathologies.
  A soft robotic technology by controllably morphing gel structures (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/XU)
  Dr B Xu
Applications accepted all year round
This project includes the design and fabrication of a soft robotic technology by using the stimuli-responsive hydrogel materials and structural thin shell design, which enable instability morphology to be spatially distributed and generated at the surface of gel structure.
  Polymeric Hydrogels for Regenerative Medicine Applications
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round
Regenerative medicine aims to repair injured or diseased tissues using a multidisciplinary approach to stimulate natural repair mechanisms or promote healing through the transplantation of cells, often the patient’s own stem cells.
  Protein design to create user-specified, stimuli-responsive, nanomaterials.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof L Regan
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
This project is suitable for a student with an undergraduate degree in biology, chemistry, physics or engineering.
  Diabetic osteoarthritis : Investigating its causes and discovering interventions using tissue engineered human cartilage
  Dr JR Henstock
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. People with diabetes have more than twice the risk of developing osteoarthritis than the general population.
  (BBSRC DTP) Isothermal Amplification for viral detection
  Dr S Jones, Prof P Vallely
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The need to develop better techniques capable of improving detection of viral infections, whilst also improving the assays associated with identifying suitable antivirals is of upmost importance.
