  Novel cyclic peptide constructs for targeted biomolecular imaging
  Prof M Zanda, Dr S Butler
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Over 40 cyclic peptides are used in the clinic for a wide range of applications, such as somatostatin and ciclosporin. Cyclic peptides have enormous potential for disrupting protein-protein interactions and are therefore being pursued as drug candidates for treating a number of unmet medical needs.
  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.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round
Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  (BBSRC DTP) Inhibition of SR protein kinase 1 with designer peptides
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD project addresses BBSRC’s ENWW in that the student will be trained in. Biophysical techniques - ITC, SPR, CD; Structural biology techniques - solution state NMR and X-ray crystallography; Computational techniques - molecular dynamics simulations and computer modelling and analysis.
  Computer simulation of metal-amyloid interaction and its role in plaque formation
  Dr J Platts
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Molecular design and biophysical analysis of a new class of membrane-rupturing peptide antibiotics
  Prof A Tabor, Dr S Howorka
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
New antimicrobial agents are urgently needed in order to combat the threat of antibiotic resistance. Nisin, a complex polycyclic peptide, is a promising lead.
  Bicyclic peptides: targeting toxins and pathogens to accelerate anti-infective discovery
  Prof C G Dowson
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
PhD in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research. Fully funded studentship available for entry in September 2019. This Industrial Collaborative Award in Science and Engineering (iCASE) studentship is offered by Warwick’s MRC Funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
  Interaction of selected phosphor-peptides and organic molecules with 14-3-3 proteins
  Dr J Hritz, Assoc Prof V Bryja, Prof V Bryja
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
14-3-3 proteins play key role in the neurobiochemistry of brain and are also associated with neurodegenerative amyloid diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson disease.
  Chemical Synthesis of Novel Antimicrobial Peptides that Target Multidrug Resistant Bacteria
  Dr S Cochrane
Application Deadline: 18 February 2019
The continued emergence of antimicrobial resistance is a major global concern. The rapid development of resistance mechanisms by bacteria, as well as the lack of new structurally and mechanistically distinct classes of antibiotics, means that new antibiotics and antibiotic targets are desperately needed.
  Enhancing MHC Presentation of Antigenic Peptides for Cancer Gene Therapy
  Dr A Brown
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
A fully funded PhD studentship, in collaboration with MedImmune, is available in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield, starting in October 2019.
