  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes.

  Mapping the radiation tolerance and local mechanics of nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel steels
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr E Jimenez-Melero, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of the local microstructure on the radiation damage and mechanical performance of neutron-irradiated Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) steels at relevant reactor conditions and in the bulk microstructure, with sufficient spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity to identify local changes in chemistry, phases, microstructure and plasticity/hardening.
  Molecular aggregates in solution and their translation into the crystalline phase of pharmaceuticals
  Dr K Edkins, Dr E Bichenkova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) have to be in the solid state to be formulated, and due to improved stability, the crystalline phase is preferred.
