  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Mechanism of Bacterial Resistance to Antimicrobial Peptides
  Prof Mibel Aguilar
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance continues to emerge and intensify.
  (MRC DTP) Insulin-mediated antimicrobial secretion from pancreatic acinar cells regulates the gut microbiome and barrier function: Link between diabetes and severity of acute pancreatitis
  Dr J Bruce, Prof I Roberts, Dr J Pennock
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute pancreatitis is a serious and sometimes fatal inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Severe cases are characterised by infected pancreatic necrosis, sepsis and multiple organ failure, which increases mortality and prolongs critical care occupancy.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Defining the role of efflux in bacterial biofilm formation and antimicrobial resistance to develop new treatments for infection
  Dr B V Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  The bacterial protein translocation machinery: a target for new strategies against antimicrobial resistance
  Prof I Collinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a major problem affecting millions of people across the world. This severely affects treatment of bacterial infections as strains are emerging that are totally resistant to all clinically used antibiotics.
  The maintenance of virulence and antimicrobial resistance in Shigella
  Prof C Tang
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shigella spp are the main cause for dysentery worldwide, and emerged from commensal Escherichia coli following acquisition of a 210 kb virulence plasmid.
  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Using ATP to understand AMR: a modelling challenge (LANGRIDGEQ19DART)
  Dr G Langridge, Prof J Wain
Application Deadline: 11 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This collaborative project will assess the impact of antimicrobials upon ATP metabolism in uropathogenic bacteria. The results will aid the development of a clinical diagnostic test for urinary tract infections (UTIs) that can inform antimicrobial therapy.
