  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Decoding the Language of Nature: It is time for Artificial Intelligence to predict the function of natural products based on structure
  Prof R Quinn, Dr M Liu, Dr CW Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The profound and specific biological activity of natural products coupled with their immediately recognizable structures suggests a code within these structures that we are not as yet aware of.
  Studies on the Total Synthesis of Anthracimycin and Related Natural Products
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthracimycin 1 and chlorotonil A 2 exhibit extremely potent activity as antibiotic agents, while streptosetin A 3 has anti-tumour activity.
  Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Prof C Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
  Potential therapeutic effects of natural products in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical cancers
  Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women worldwide. Infection caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), especially type 16 and 18 are implicated in the etiology of most cervical cancers.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Discovery of Antibiotics from Cyanobacteria (TRUMANJ20DTP)
  Dr A Truman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria have the capacity to produce natural products with exquisite bioactivities, which makes these compounds excellent candidates as medicines and agrochemicals.
  Developing effective measurement techniques for the assessment of Furan Fatty Acids levels
  Dr M Kimber
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Furan Fatty Acids (FFAs) are an important class of natural products due to their nutritional health benefits and impact on inflammatory & cardiovascular…
  Brønsted Acid Catalysed Asymmetric Synthesis of Cyclic Ethers
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years there has been a drive by medicinal chemists to explore more 3-dimensional areas of chemical space. Cyclic ethers, such as the tetrahydropyran (THP) and the tetrahydrofuran (THF) rings, are the most common and 6th most common saturated heterocyclic function present in marketed pharmaceuticals.
