  Development of host defence peptides as therapeutics to treat drug-resistant metastatic melanoma
  Dr S Troeira Henriques
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acquired drug resistance is a serious problem for the treatment of metastatic melanoma. Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer due to its metastatic potential and late stages of the disease are treated with radiotherapy, or conventional chemotherapy.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Computer simulation of metal-amyloid interaction and its role in plaque formation
  Dr J Platts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Novel Cyclic Peptides for Biomedical Imaging and Therapeutic Targeting
  Prof M Zanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic Peptides have a wide range of applications as drugs and diagnostics, and have often higher receptor affinity, metabolic stability and better pharmacokinetic properties compared to their linear counterparts, but their synthesis still presents significant challenges.
  Mechanism of Ribosomal Antibiotics-Induced Stalling Studied by Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics
  Prof HG Grubmuller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

- You are a physicist or chemist who wants to reveal how life works at the molecular level?. - You know how to combine computer power and theory to solve biological problems?.
  A dynamic biomaterial-ligand tethering strategy for tissue engineering
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
