peptide PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 42 peptide PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Enzyme-responsive peptide hydrogels as in situ forming long-acting drug delivery implants

One of the key issues in the treatment and prevention of disease is that patients struggle to adhere to the complex dosage regimens of therapies, which often require multiple dosing at very specific times each day. Read more

Design and study of modified peptide foldamers

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

A novel peptide based approach to inhibit growth of antimicrobial resistant pathogens

Project description. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest global challenges to human health in the 21st century, with the worst-case scenario development of a raft of incurable infections, especially Hospital Gram negative pathogens. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis. Read more

Artificial cyclic peptide library for novel antimicrobial resistance therapeutics and targeted delivery

Supervisory Team: Dr Afaf El-Sagheer and Dr Sandra Wilks. PhD Supervisor. Afaf El-Sagheer. Project description. A fully-funded 4 year PhD studentship is available for drug discovery research on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at the University of Southampton. Read more

Peptide-based nanoparticles for brain targeted gene delivery.

Gene therapy has the potential to provide therapeutic benefit to millions of people with neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Delivery into the brain is hampered by the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which limits the efficacy of both conventional and novel therapies at the target site. Read more

Unravelling the Intricacies of Stress Hormone Regulation

Project Overview. The proopiomelanocortin (POMC) pathway is a crucial signaling cascade involved in regulating various physiological processes, including our response to stress, metabolism, immune function, and pigmentation. Read more

Peptide-mediated nanocarrier drug delivery for enhanced brain targeting and treatment of inflammation

This project involves the study of nanoparticles and drug delivery to the brain. The student would be required to make and characterise novel nanoparticles from special lipid molecules of various compositions more suitable for blood-brain barrier (BBB) targeting. Read more
