  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.

  Dr IA Guschina, Prof S Ormerod
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite growing global concern about the occurrence of small plastic particles (nano- and micro-plastics) in the world’s seas, rivers and lakes, there has been limited research into understanding any adverse effects on living organisms.

  (A*STAR) The role of desmosome regulation in development, wound healing and cancer
  Dr C Ballestrem, Prof D R Garrod
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regulation of cell movement is a key factor in human development and disease. Desmosomes are intercellular junctions that give strength to normal tissues by binding their cells tightly together.
