We have 38 natural medicine PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Bioinspired Total Synthesis of Complex Natural Products

The School of Chemistry is offering a fully funded PhD studentship to a highly motivated candidate to start in September 2024. The student will carry out their doctoral research in the George Group, which has recently moved to the University of Southampton. Read more

Molecular mechanisms underlying the anti-atherogenic actions of natural products

Atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of myocardial infarction, stroke and peripheral vascular disease, is responsible for most deaths in the western world with mortality increasing at a marked rate in developing. Read more

Therapeutic resolution of coronavirus (COVID-19) diseases by natural products

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Coronavirus now labelled as Covid-19 has become a global pandemic affecting around 200 countries. Currently neither any cure nor any vaccine for Covid-19 has been established. Read more

Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death. Read more

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

Doctoral Researcher (m/f/div) in Microbiome Systems Biology

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology (Leibniz-HKI) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics. Read more

Molecular characterisation of post-tuberculous bronchiectasis

Tuberculosis is a major health problem is Iraq and globally. While treatment of TB, including MDR TB has greatly improved resulting in high rates of clinical cure, many patients with TB are left with persisting lung disease including airflow obstruction and bronchiectasis. Read more

Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma. Read more

Cancer: Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more

3D printing of nanocomposite drug delivery platforms

Hydrogel-based three-dimensional (3D) printing has garnered significant interest in various biomedical fields like tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and personalized medicine. Read more

Mid-infrared hollow-core fibre and laser development for environmental monitoring, non-invasive surgery and advanced manufacturing

In this project we will develop hollow-core optical fibres (HCFs) for mid-infrared laser delivery. HCFs offer a radically new solution for laser delivery as they guide light in a gas-filled core, instead of the glass in conventional optical fibres. Read more
