  The greening of peptide synthesis
  Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptide synthesis (both solution and solid state) is of fundamental importance to the pharmaceuticals sector. They are therefore expected to play a major role in the future of drug discovery.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Minimal Peptide Scaffolds for Modelling and Catalysis
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr A Croft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron-sulfur clusters are ubiquitous cofactors in nature; present in a variety of metalloproteins, these clusters mediate a broad variety of essential biological processes, including electron transfer, reaction catalysis (hydrogenase, nitrogenase, etc.), oxygen-sensing and the regulation of gene expression.
  Structure based design of novel warheads for use in peptide-drug conjugates
  Dr S Butterworth, Dr A Tirella, Dr D Wiseman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CMML) is an orphan disease defined by myeloid dysplasia, myeloproliferation and a malignant expansion of classical monocytes.
  Creating Materials to Deliver Stem Cell Products
  Dr Mark Del Borgo, Dr Ketav Kulkarni, Prof R Widdop, Prof Mibel Aguilar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell therapy holds immense potential as a treatment paradigm for a number of conditions. However, currently the therapeutic outcome is often limited by low cell survivability, poor integration within the host tissue of the stroke brain and non-sustained delivery over the period of treatment.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Dr M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof C Schroeder, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Towards RNA-mediated peptide synthesis
