  USP17 as a cancer therapeutic target
  Dr J Burrows
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

USP17 is over-expressed in a range of primary tumours including NSCLC, breast, colorectal, cervical, ovarian and osteosarcoma and its depletion has been shown to block the growth of cells from all these cancer types.
  Computer Simulations of G protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr I Tikhonova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many physiological processes are controlled through the activation of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) by regulatory peptides, making peptide GPCRs particularly useful targets for major human diseases such as diabetes and CNS diseases.
  Optimising pharmacological treatment of non-cognitive symptoms in people with dementia
  Dr H Barry, Prof C Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-cognitive symptoms experienced by people with dementia may include agitation, aggression, distress, psychosis, anxiety and depression.
  Peptide hydrogels as a long-acting multipurpose drug delivery platform for combined contraception and HIV prevention
  Dr G Laverty, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death in women of reproductive age worldwide. HIV and unintended pregnancies are prevalent in developing nations due to the lack of effective female contraceptive choice.
  To develop an allosteric inhibitor of HDAC6 inhibition in cancer
  Dr F Furlong, Dr I Tikhonova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The HDAC6 protein is upregulated in cancer and associated with increased proliferation and metastasis. Several HDAC6 inhibitors have been developed and are in clinical trials.
  Microfluidic Synthesis of Nanomedicines for the Delivery of Biologic Drugs
  Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in drug design has led to the development of new molecules. However, the limited ability to selectively deliver these molecules at well-defined dosing regimens remains a significant challenge.
  Determining the microbiome of the homes of people with chronic respiratory diseases
  Dr D Gilpin, Dr D Downey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of the microbial world in and around us has radically changed. The idea that we live with a complex and diverse community of microbes, has moved us away from a “hygiene hypothesis”, where having less bacteria was, to put it simply, better.
  Antimicrobial prescribing in hospice and palliative care
  Dr C Parsons, Dr D Gilpin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Terminally ill patients are at high risk of infections and antimicrobial exposure near the end of life. However, the evidence-base to guide prescribers in the use of antibiotics for the treatment of infections in patients receiving hospice and palliative care is currently lacking.
  CFD of Flow and Temperature Control Using Porous Materials
  Dr Y Mahmoudi Larimi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of porous materials (i.e. solid medium permeated by a network of pores), in particular, for passive control of flow and thermal purposes has received considerable academic and industrial attention over the past five decades.
  Tackling the Bad Bugs: Chemical Tools to Study Bacterial Pathogenicity and Antimicrobial Resistance
  Prof G Wagner
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD project in chemical biology is available in the group of Professor Gerd Wagner (Queen’s University Belfast). The project is concerned with the development of chemical tools to understand fundamental aspects of bacterial pathogenicity and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
