Investigating the interplay between the immune consequences of pelvic radiotherapy, the gut microbiome and long-term side-effects

The North West has a higher prevalence of pelvic cancers compared to the rest of England. Around 40% of all people with cancer have curative-intent radiotherapy (RT) with 1 in 3 people having pelvic radiotherapy as an important component of their anti-cancer treatment. Read more

Estimating chemical toxicity to wildlife – helping to dispose of our radioactive wastes

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out a 4-year PhD project to develop an approach for estimating chemical toxicity to wildlife in support of the UK’s radioactive waste disposal activities by empowering decision making and building confidence around our ability to deal with radioactive and non-radioactive wastes in the long-term.

Award details iCASE: Looking for an Achilles Heel in the deadly fungi that cause Mucormycosis Ref

Project Summary: Invasive infections by Mucorales fungi are life-threatening complications of severe blast trauma. Mucorales are resistant to most antifungals and cause devastating infections, yet are poorly understood. Read more

PhD opportunities in Pollution Research and Policy

Help shape new policies and regulatory priorities for pollution control and protect human health and the environment from harmful chemical pollution. Read more

Safer, scalable, and modifiable polymer-based lipid nanocapsules for drug delivery

Lipid nanocapsules (LNCs) are very interesting nanoformulations as they can be made by phase inversion technique (PIT), a scalable method with predictable particle size at the beginning of the preparation process. Read more

The development of metal-based antibiotics

Background. Due to the widespread rise in microbial resistance, new classes of antimicrobial agents are urgently needed. However, only very few of the compounds in clinical development represent new structural classes. Read more

Investigating the role of SOD1 in sporadic Motor Neuron Disease patients using structural proteomics

Background. Motor Neuron Disease/Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a complex neurological disorder characterised by the progressive degeneration of motor neurons that is thought to be caused by mitochondrial dysfunction leading to oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. Read more

Modification of antibiotics to improve efficacy / safety

With increasing concern over antibiotic resistance, antibacterial agents such as chloramphenicol and colistin, which have frequently been passed over in the past because of concerns over toxicity, are now becoming more important to tackle resistant bacterial strains. Read more

Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes. Read more

New materials for solar cells

We have a vacancy for a PhD student to work on the synthesis and characterisation of new materials for solar cells. Hybrid lead halide perovskites are attracting considerable interest due to their potential as photovoltaic materials for solar cells with very high efficiencies. Read more
