  The mechanism of regulation of protein synthesis via eIF2 molecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Control of protein synthesis is critical for normal metabolism, development and responses to stress. One major pathway is called the integrated stress response (ISR) and centres on translational control of the general protein synthesis factor eIF2B via the phosphorylation of eIF2 [1,2].
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  The role of protein turnover in bacterial life and death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of protein levels in bacterial cells is essential for their growth and survival. This is an interplay between protein synthesis and turnover.
  Structural biology of nucleic acid processing machines from human and bacterial viruses
  Prof A A Antson, Dr P Fogg
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses are the most common biological entities on our planet, infecting all living things. In humans, viral infections like herpes and poliovirus cause serious illnesses but, because they are impossible to eradicate using current treatments, they can also persist indefinitely.

  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.
  Investigation and exploration of health and therapeutic benefits of plant-derived secondary metabolites
  Dr C Situ, Prof J Bengoechea
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Plants and their products have revolutionarily shaped human development throughout history. The traditional plant-based medicine continues to play an essential role in the treatment of disease and in healthcare systems in many parts the world.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
