  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  Identifying cardiac disease markers using non-lethal ’biopsy’ of cells.
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr A.J. Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on our recent exciting discovery that a novel chemical tool, the polymer styrene maleic acid (SMA), can ‘biopsy’ human vascular cells, extracting proteins from the membrane without killing the cells.
