peptide chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 21 peptide chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

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

Developing Enabling Synthetic Methods for Accelerated Peptidomimetic Drug Discovery

Transient protein-protein interactions (PPIs) control all cellular processes relevant to health and disease. Thus, a major problem in life-sciences research is to understand and manipulate PPIs with molecular and temporal resolution. Read more

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

PhD in Chemistry - Chemical Biology and Quantum Dots for Portable Liver Fibrosis Diagnostics

Enthusiastic, self-motivated candidates are invited to apply for a 3.5 year PhD position available to commence from Oct 2024 in the Bio Nano Sensing group, in the University of Glasgow School of Chemistry. Read more

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Developing of Macrocyclic Inhibitors of the MAPK Pathway

Supervisory Team: Prof Ali Tavassoli . Project Description. We are seekign an outstanding chemistry student with an interest in chemical biology to work on a project to develop cyclic peptide inhibitors of a protein-protein interaction that is heavily implicated in the development and growth of tumours. . Read more

PhD in Chemistry: Computer simulation of metal-amyloid interaction and its role in plaque formation

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the greatest healthcare challenges facing 21st century society. AD is associated with formation of fibrils and plaques in brain tissue that impair proper functioning of neurons. Read more

Peptide controlled growth of photoactive lead halide perovskite materials for solar and photodetector applications

Lead halide perovskites have shown tremendous promise as materials for novel photovoltaics with exceptionally high efficiencies and low cost manufacture, but their application is limited due to the inherent stability of the materials. 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

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

Chemical modification of proteins via metal-mediated processes

Chemically modified proteins can be used to understand, treat, and diagnose disease. However, relatively few chemical reactions can be used to modify proteins, severely limiting the diversity and applications of new technologies. Read more

Taking Light Induced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance In Cell for Biological Structural Determination

Studying the structure of proteins and other biological systems is an important step in understanding their function. Most structural studies are conducted in environments that are far away from native conditions, such as those found inside a cell. Read more

A new twist on catalysis: folded oligomers with organometallic termini

A key feature of biological systems is the storage and transmission of information across multi-nanometre distances, which maintains the complex chemical networks and functions within cells. Read more
