  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Strain wars and the evolution of opportunistic pathogens
  Prof S Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  How acquisition of antimicrobial resistance genes enhance bacterial colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof P W Andrew, Prof J M Ketley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human immune system uses antimicrobial metals as part of its defence mechanism. Excess copper is highly toxic and accumulates at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
