  The potential of natural phage communities in biofilm degradation
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr E Jameson, Dr F Harrison
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Examine the structure of phage communities from a range of environments with metagenome sequencing. Construct a synthetic model biofilm in the laboratory, which is representative of waste water treatment biofouling.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round
Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. They are seen as a promising alternative to antibiotics, particularly as multi-resistant bacterial strains are becoming more widespread and could one day render existing antibiotic therapies ineffective.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridium difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospital and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019

  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
  Exploiting a new therapeutic target in malignant melanoma (MORRISCU19SF)
  Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
BACKGROUND. Despite recent advancements in treatment, cutaneous melanoma still remains a deadly disease once it has metastasised.
  Understanding cancer using novel Affimer binding proteins
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr D Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round
The specificity of protein-protein interactions is key to the successful execution of virtually every biological process yet molecular biology tools to block these interactions are lacking.
