  Metabolic rewiring in liver cancer: Role of oxidative stress and the Nrf2 pathway
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
Many of the major risks factors for developing liver cancer such as alcohol, obesity, smoking and toxin exposure share in common a role for oxidative stress.
  Effect of oxidative stress on the biochemistry of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP)-lyase enzymes in tropical reef organisms - to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD
  Dr M Steinke, Dr M Hough, Dr J Worrall
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Rationale. Tropical coral reefs are a substantial source of the climate-cooling gas dimethyl sulfide (DMS). The major precursor of DMS is the secondary metabolite dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) that is biosynthesised to high concentrations in symbiotic dinoflagellates of the tropical genus Symbiodinium [1].
  Induction of yeast prions by oxidative stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof M Ashe
Applications accepted all year round
Prions are novel protein-only infectious agents associated with a group of transmissible neurodegenerative diseases typified by human Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD).
  Synthesis and study of metal chelators against neurodegenerative diseases and cancer (ref:SF18/APP/Tetard)
  Dr D Tetard
Applications accepted all year round
Because of the involvement of metal in numerous biological processes, in particular in oxidative stress and enzymatic action, the study of metal chelators as potential therapeutic agents has been growing.
  Development of stimuli-responsive metallosupramolecular architectures for sensing and/or delivery of medicine for the treatment of solid tumours
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr D Petty, Dr M Najafzadeh, Dr S Pike
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a new self-funded PhD opportunity in the School of Chemistry & Biosciences at the University of Bradford.
  A hidden biochemical pathway in the chemical pathology of diabetes (HAMILTONCU19SF)
  Dr C Hamilton
Applications accepted all year round
In humans, the cysteine-containing tripeptide glutathione (GSH) is an essential thiol cofactor that maintains an intracellular reducing environment to protect against oxidative stress reactive oxygen species, which cause lipid, protein & DNA damage.
  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  Exploring the role of human cytoglobin in cancer therapy resistance – to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD)
  Dr B Reeder, Dr G Brooke
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
A series of new haemoglobins have been discovered over the past 20 years including a ubiquitously expressed vertebrate protein, cytoglobin.
  Natural chemicals as anti-aging compounds
  Dr A Kolb
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Aging is a complex, multi-facetted process during which key parameters in an organism change gradually, resulting in an overall functional decline.
  The role of FOXO1 in obesity-driven protection in cardiac surgery
  Prof G Murphy, Dr S Yusoff, Dr M Woźniak
Applications accepted all year round
The PhD student will work as part of the BHF funded Cardiac Surgery Research Group, the largest cardiac surgery research group in the UK.
