Rationale. This project targets one of the BBSRC’s strategic priority areas. Bioscience for Sustainable Agriculture and Food; sub-theme Crops and soil.
  Bacterial chemical harpoons – how do TIE proteins function?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr U Schwarz-Linek
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to colonise a host and cause infections, bacteria need to gain a foothold by adhering to tissues such as cell surfaces. In general this is achieved through specific interactions between proteins and multimeric protein assemblies (pili) presented on the bacterial surface, and host molecules.
  Evaluating the efficacy of combinations of ‘repurposed’ approved drugs with antibiotics as ‘resistance breakers’ to treat infections with multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr P Coote
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a global requirement to identify novel treatments to combat multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria. Incidence of infections caused by these pathogens is rising and effective treatment is problematic resulting in increased morbidity and mortality [1].
  Understanding the gene regulatory landscape of embryonic stem cells and cancer cells
  Prof A Sharrocks, Prof M Rattray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell identity is ultimately determined through decoding the genome through the action of gene regulatory mechanisms. In particular, sculpting of the chromatin landscape to reveal unique configurations of gene regulatory elements in each cell type is a major driver of cell identity.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces, encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  Can improving biodiversity help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from small waterbodies?
  Dr A Law, Prof N Willby, Dr I Jones, Dr A Pickard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change and the intensification of land use practices are causing widespread changes in ecosystems globally. This is particularly evident in freshwater ecosystems, a critical resource for society, where high connectivity within and between ecosystems allows multiple stressors to degrade these habitats.
  Synthesis and identification of homoisoflavonoids and lignans for the treatment of wet active age-related macular degeneration based on their anti-vascular endothelial growth factor and anti-inflammatory activities
  Dr S Schwikkard, Dr E Opara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related macular degeneration is reported to be the most common cause of visual impairment, and its certification, in the developed world.
