  Pyocins as alternatives to antibiotics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections
  Dr C Penfold
Applications accepted all year round
Pyocins are bacteriocins produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to kill closely related strains of the same species during times of environmental stress.
  Novel approaches to detect and treat Pseudomonas aeruginosa antibiotic resistant biofilms in cystic fibrosis
  Prof M Camara, Dr L Martinez-Pomares
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Project Overview. Cystic fibrosis patients are regularly colonised by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) which avoids the impact of the immune system and antibiotic therapy through the formation of biofilms.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
  Enzyme-responsive nanocapsules for the delivery of antimicrobials
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Prof F Caruso
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Aim. To develop new enzyme-responsive nanocapsules for the targeted delivery of last resort antibiotics against resistant bacteria.
  To experimentally determine the environmental influences acting on P. aeruginosa virulence factor expression in biofilms and understand the catalytic mechanism of one of them (the surface tethered aminopeptidase AaaA)
  Dr K Hardie
Applications accepted all year round
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important opportunistic pathogen. It is a problem for the immunocompromised and has attained superbug notoriety since it is evident in hospitals and has inherent resistance to antibiotics.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Investigating the efficacy of novel antimicrobial mixes on microorganisms, surfaces and cells lines; an integrated study
  Dr A Kelly, Dr S Schwikkard, Prof D Wertheim
Applications accepted all year round
The projection that within 50 years there will be more deaths from antimicrobial resistance than through cancer highlights the continual need for mining new and novel antimicrobials with activity against planktonic microbes and biofilms alike1.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
