  Responsive biomaterials with tunable self-healing properties
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The use of biomaterials to regrow or repair damaged biological tissue has the potential to revolutionise how we treat disease.
  How does the plant decode self- and non-self-signals to balance immune response and growth? (MENKES20DTPR)
  Dr F Menke, Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are constantly exposed to microbial signals and need to decode and integrate these signals with signaling processes controlling growth.
  Bioactive Peptide Nanostructures: The relation between bioactivity and molecular self-assembly into diverse nanostructures
  Prof I W Hamley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into bioactive peptides includes work on antimicrobial peptides, amyloid-related peptides with relevance to protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimers, lipopeptides with applications in immune therapies and for wound healing and skincare.
  (BBSRC DTP) Solubilising Insoluble Proteins using Self-Assembling Supramolecular Structures
  Dr I Riddell, Dr L Wong, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein insolubility is a common problem for researchers working with isolated proteins that, due to hydrophobic patches on their surface, misfold and/or aggregate outside of their natural environment.
  EASTBIO Forward engineering of pattern formation: Models and experiments towards predictive multicellular self-organisation
  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
  Dr G Blin, Dr L Schumacher
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The aim of developmental biology is a complete understanding of how the embryo develops, how embryonic cells acquire their fate and how they arrange in time and space to create complex organisms.

  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
  Prof A Straube
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disciplines. Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences,. Subjects. Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology / Development.
  Biochemical analysis of the interaction of pluripotency transcription factors with RNA polymerase enzymes
  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
  Prof I Chambers
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pluripotent stem cells possess the dual defining properties of self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation potential. To retain an effective differentiation capacity, self-renewal must occur at high efficiency.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
