  Improving responses to skin & soft tissues infections among people who inject drugs.
  Prof V D Hope, Dr H R Sumnall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin & soft tissues infections (SSTIs) among people who inject drugs (PWID) are a substantial health problem.[1] They result from the difficulties in maintaining good injection practice and hygiene in the environments were illicit psychoactive drugs (such as heroin) are typically consumed.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Development of metabolomics for understanding AMR in mixed infections
  Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Effects of COVID-19 on antibiotic prescribing, healthcare use and E. coli resistance
  Dr C Marwick, Prof P Donnan, Dr B Parcell
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an increasing public health threat and antibiotic use in humans is a major contributing factor.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  “Smart” scaffolds for preventing post-surgery infections and evaluation in a simulated in vivo microenvironment
  Dr A Anastasiou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections associated with bacterial colonisation around implants and scaffolds is a significant clinical problem both in orthopaedics and regenerative dentistry.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  Nanoparticle-based Therapeutics to Combat Multidrug Resistance and Biofilms in Chronic Wound Infections
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr Z Ong, Dr J R McLaughlan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
  Broad spectrum antiviral and antibiofilm materials to treat hospital acquired infections
  Dr RA D'Sa
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate is found.
  Polymers for treating amoebic infections in India
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amoebic parasitic infections are widespread in the tropics. Amoebic dysentery can be fatal if the parasite progresses to the brain.
  Investigating the molecular basis of this adhesion and the development of tetraspanin-based reagents for preventing bacterial infections
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tetraspanins are a diverse, conserved family of eukaryotic membrane proteins. Their principal feature is the ability to form dynamic multi-molecular assemblies in cell membranes known as tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEM).
  Understanding multi-component remedies from historical medical texts
  Dr E Connelly, Dr F Harrison
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for novel routes to drug discovery due to the significant increase in antibiotic-resistant microbes (AMR) and the lack of new drugs currently in development to treat antibiotic-resistant infections.
  Developing an intervention to maximise nurse antibiotic prescribing for Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI).
  Dr V Ness, Dr L Price, Dr K McAloney-Kocaman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20034 Ness. Antimicrobial resistance is a public health priority with human, financial and social costs. One of the main contributors to this resistance is the inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics.
