  Synthesis and structural properties of cyclic peptides incorporating novel non-reducible cystine mimics
  Prof A Tabor
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This iCASE BBSRC PhD studentship is a collaboration between Professor Alethea Tabor’s group at UCL and Cambridge Research Biochemicals (CRB).
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr K Jackson
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.
  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.
  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.
  A dynamic biomaterial-ligand tethering strategy for tissue engineering
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Biomaterials that can trigger the repair of damaged tissues have the potential to revolutionise the way we treat disease. Materials that can present cells and tissues with powerful biochemical signals, through attached peptides, proteins, and carbohydrates, are particularly effective at controlling regeneration.
  Influence of membrane properties on peptide conformations
  Prof R Vácha
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
Peptide and protein conformations are influenced by composition of phospholipid membrane, which they are interacting with.
  Development of molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles (nanoMIPs) specific for anti-AAV antibodies, their characterisation and application
  Dr E Piletska
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
The studentship aims at addressing the issue of pre-existing humoral immunity to Adeno-Associated Viruses (AAV), which is frequently found in humans, and prevents treatment with AAV vectors.
