  Long Period Hydrogel Grating on Optical Fibre for Biosensing
  Dr R Gupta, Dr S. Korposh
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project will bring together the expertise of Dr Ruchi Gupta (University of Birmingham, UoB) and Dr Serhiy Korposh (University of Nottingham, UoN) in hydrogel gratings [1] and optical fibres [2] to deliver a sensing platform.
  Iontophoresis to deliver corticosteroids across buccal mucosal using hydrogel as delivery systems
  Prof M Patel, Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Formation of Hydraulic and Chemical Ground Barriers to Inhibit Contaminant Migration on Radioactively Contaminated Sites
  Prof R Lunn, Dr M Pedrotti
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This 4-year PhD at the University of Strathclyde will explore the use of colloidal silica hydrogel as a barrier to migration of radioactive contaminants in soils during decommissioning operations on nuclear facilities.
  Microfluidic manipulation of the properties of soft biocompatible materials via thermophoresis
  Dr D Vigolo
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit an innovative way to locally manipulate the mechanical properties and porosity of a soft material at the micron scale, and thus develop a new class of functionalised materials.
  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  Polymeric Hydrogels for Regenerative Medicine Applications
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  A human ’mini-gut-on-a-chip’ to study microbial-epithelial cell interactions (SAEEDU20DTP)
  Dr A Saeed, Dr M R Williams
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human organoids are 3D fragments of adult tissues and ideally conserve all of the (stem) cell types and recapitulate all of the (patho)physiological processes associated with human health and disease.
  Novel building blocks for soft materials based on carbohydrate assemblies (KHIMYAKU20DTP)
  Prof Y Khimyak, Dr J Angulo
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and generate soft biomatter that fulfil many important biological functions; they are also exploited as bulk commodities across industry sectors due to their remarkable range of properties.
