  EASTBIO - Putting a spin on structural biology – biomedical applications of pulsed high field electron paramagnetic resonance
  Dr B E Bode, Dr G Smith
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Structural biology is investigating ever more complex systems. It emerges that often capturing the essential biological context is crucial for in vitro studies to become relevant to structure and function in vivo.
  (BBSRC DTP) Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Pulsed Dipolar Spectroscopy for Structural Biology
  Dr A Bowen, Dr S Hay, Dr M Shanmugam
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance is a rapidly expanding suit of techniques used for the study of complex (bio)molecules that possess spin-active moieties with unaired electrons.
  A new route to functionalised, stable Blatter-type free radicals
  Dr V Chechik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although most free radical are highly reactive and have very limited lifetime, some possess excellent stability. The magnetic properties of unpaired electron make such radicals promising building blocks for magnetic materials.
  Novel Methods for the Photocatalytic Oxidative Degradation of Polymers
  Dr GJP Britovsek, Dr M Roessler
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Supervisors. Prof. George Britovsek (Imperial College London), Dr. Maxie Roessler (Imperial CollegeLondon), Dr. Ali Salehi-Reyhani (Kings College London), Dr.
  Integrating human functional genomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics to accelerate drug discovery for precision medicine in asthma. Acronym: OxMAP (Oxford Multiomics Asthma Project)
  Dr T Hinks, Prof J C Knight
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Dr Timothy Hinks, Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford. Co-supervisor. Prof Julian Knight, Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  Understanding how (bio)molecular machines work
  Dr M Roessler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxidation-reduction reactions underpin innumerable chemical reactions - and much of the chemistry of life. Our group investigates how oxidation-state changes govern respiration and photosynthesis and how nature has fine-tuned the redox properties of its many intricate molecular machines.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  SOLAR-protect: Can tomato extracts protect skin from aging? (GAVRILOVICU20CASE)
  Dr J Gavrilovic, Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The prospects are very bright for the use of plant extracts to protect against skin diseases such as UV light-mediated skin aging.
  Structural Characterisation of Novel Membrane Ion Channels (Chinese candidates / China mainland only)
  Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the Pliotas group (https://www.pliotasgroup.org/) focuses on the investigation of molecular mechanisms which underlie the structure and function of integral membrane proteins, in particular ion channels.
  Characterisation of free radical intermediates in photoredox catalysis: synthetic applications aided by mechanistic understanding
  Dr V Chechik, Dr A R Rickard
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Development of photoredox catalysis in the late 2000s revolutionised the use of free radical chemistry in organic synthesis.
  Life’s ups and downs: probing the conformational dynamics of DASS transporters, a protein family associated with age-related diseases and lifespan determination (MACMILLANU20DTP)
  Dr F MacMillan, Dr J Angulo
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study the architecture and functional dynamics of membrane proteins, especially many medically relevant membrane transport systems.
  Elucidating the Structure and Function of Mechanosensitive G-protein Coupled Receptors
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr C Pliotas, Prof A Goldman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane proteins (MPs) make up a significant part of the genome and are the target of ~30% of therapeutics and yet our structural and functional understanding often lags behind their soluble counterparts.
  Bioinspired worm-like nanoparticles for the delivery of anti-cancer stem cell agents
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer relapse and metastasis, the leading cause of cancer-associated deaths, is strongly linked to the existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a small sub-population of cancer cells defined by their ability to self-renew, differentiate, and form secondary tumours.
  Photocatalysis supported by non-innocent ligands
  Prof A-K Duhme-Klair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photocatalysis allows light energy to be harnessed to drive catalytic reactions via single-electron transfer. However, many redox-catalytic processes, including those that involve oxygen atom transfer, require the transfer of more than one electron.1.
  Putting new twists on pi-Electron acceptor design
  Dr A-J Avestro, Prof D W Bruce
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Electron-deficient π-conjugated organic materials are the subject of intense research on account of the strong prospects to revolutionise efficient lighting and energy generation applications.
  Synthetic complexes of the histidine brace
  Prof P Walton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellulose is the world’s most abundant biopolymer. 1011 kg is generated every year, equivalent in energy to 670 billion barrels of oil, some 20 times the current annual global oil consumption.
