  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  De novo design of a new generation of catalysts based on rhodium coiled coils
  Dr A Peacock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will generate a new class of miniature metalloenzymes based on rhodium coiled coils, which bring together the power of enzymatic catalysis, as provided by the coiled coil miniature protein-type scaffold, and small molecule rhodium catalysis.
  Minimal Peptide Scaffolds for Modelling and Catalysis
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr A Croft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron-sulfur clusters are ubiquitous cofactors in nature; present in a variety of metalloproteins, these clusters mediate a broad variety of essential biological processes, including electron transfer, reaction catalysis (hydrogenase, nitrogenase, etc.), oxygen-sensing and the regulation of gene expression.
  Computational Modelling of Biological Visual Processing Utilising MEA Electrode Arrays
  Prof TM McGinnity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over 60 million people worldwide are blind and this number is rising as the global population ages. There are a number of major eye diseases, many of them associated with the retina and in addition many chronic diseases have manifestations in the eye.
  Centromere inheritance in S. pombe and beyond
  Dr L Subramanian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate chromosome segregation relies on the stable inheritance of functional centromeres through generations. A key determinant of centromere function is the histone H3 variant CENP-A (Centromere Protein A), that epigenetically marks and specifies active centromeres.
  The role of the DNA repair proteins in bone health and disease
  Dr K Schrobback, Prof D Richard
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. The DNA repair systems of a cell function to protect the genetic code from deleterious mutations that may result in the development of chronic aging-associated diseases including osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and cancer(1).
  Designing peptide based hydrogels for 3D-bioprinting applications
  Research Group: Biomaterials
  Prof A Saiani
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogels have shown significant potential as scaffold of 3D cell culture and tissue engineering applications.
  Ion channel clustering in neuronal membranes
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the study is to investigate the organization of ion channels in the membranes of excitable cells by scaffold proteins, and to discover how the properties of the channels are modified by these interactions.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  Hydrogels for tissue engineering scaffolds containing cells
  Dr R M Shelton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to investigate the potential of various polysaccharide hydrogels for use as tissue engineering scaffold materials to enable cells to be cultured both on and within the material.
