  Stimuli responsive pores towards gated membranes based on iris-like nano-valves
  Prof Lingxue Kong, Dr Ludovic Dumee
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims at developing membranes with controllable gate-keepers at the site of the entrance of the pores.
  Bioengineering of innovative functional biomaterials for diagnosis of Q fever
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Q fever is an infection by the intracellular pathogen Coxiella burnetii that can cause a severe flu-like illness. The sensitive and specific diagnosis of Q fever is important for early intervention and for control and management of the disease.
  Development of a new biomaterials platform by combining biomimetics with microfluidics
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology enables engineering of bacterial cells to serve as cell factories for the assembly of novel material such as tailor-made biopolymers attached to protein functions which mediate deposition of inorganics such as found in tooth formation.
  Development of nature-inspired polyester particles for cancer vaccines
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in synthetic biology allows recombinant bacteria to produce protein coated polyester particles. These polyester particles have been utilized as particulate vaccines against bacterial and viral infections.
  Genome editing toward bacterial cell factories for synthesis and assembly of innovative materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cell factories were developed to demonstrate production of tailor-made biopolymers such as polyesters and polysaccharides.
  Innovative bioseparation resins
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, such as therapeutic proteins, is increasingly facing limitations due to insufficient performance of existing purification processes.
  Modular design and assembly of innovative biopolymer beads as drug delivery platform
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FDA-approved polyhydroxybutyrate self-assembles in engineered bacteria and forms spherical beads of approximately 200 nm in diameter.
  Protein engineering of protein switches for development of diagnostics tools
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sensitive and specific detection of serum antibodies is often used to diagnose infections. This project aims to develop a simple qualitative/quantitative device for detection of antibodies of interest.
  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
