  Biomarkers of Genotoxic and Reprotoxic Effects after chemical exposure in vitro in human cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof D Anderson, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In human monitoring procedures, measurements obtained from endpoints to determine genetic damage are sometimes referred to as biomarkers.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis.
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Prof A M Graham, Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vein graft failure is a significant issue in cardiovascular disease patients, with restenosis caused by alterations in flow patterns leading to remodelling and disease progression.
  Development of transdermal protein liposomal delivery system for the treatment of dermatological diseases
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr M Najafzadeh, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopharmaceuticals have been increasingly used in the treatment of skin diseases. However, due to the poor absorption of peptide and protein through the skin, they are usually delivered through injections.
  Discovery of chemical and biological tools to probe hypoxic solid tumours
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr J Elies Gomez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells. One avenue towards the development of more selective cancer therapies is to exploit the unique physiological properties of solid tumours using prodrug approaches.
  Effect of nanoparticles on cellular conditions in lymphocytes and germ cells in vitro
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof D Anderson, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of metals such as silver (Ag), gold (Au) and copper (Cu) as nanoparticles (NPs) and other chemicals such as Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) (Najafzadeh et al., 2016) in medical and lifestyle applications has exponentially increased in recent years, yet little is still known about their impact on DNA and RNA in somatic as well as in germ cells (Habas et al 2018).
  Electrophysiological changes in ion channels in human haploid and diploid (spermatozoa and lymphocytes) after nanoparticle exposure
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr M H Brinkworth, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterial-mediated delivery represents a promising technique for repro- and geno- toxicology with a potential to improve the safety and efficacy of existing methodologies, including experimental gene therapy and sperm-mediated gene transfer.
