  Biotechnological production microbial lipids rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
  Dr A Chatzifragkou, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Linolenic acid (GLA, ω-6 family) is a medicinally and nutritionally important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a broad spectrum of applications, extending from food supplements to anti-cancer formulations.
  Extracellular vesicles in health and disease
  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round
Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr K Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Dr M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
  Cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs targeting the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) cascade
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The contractile cells of the heart, cardiomyocytes, possess many protective mechanisms, allowing them to withstand pathophysiological stresses.
  Fusogenic liposomes: the innovative delivery of compounds into human platelets to reduce animal use in platelet research
  Dr A Pollitt, Prof J M Gibbins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Platelets are small cells in the blood which, when activated, play a critical role in the prevention of excessive bleeding at sites of injury.
  Interleukin 1 signalling the heart
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is associated with high levels of morbidity and mortality, and is an increasing health problem worldwide. One cause is myocardial infarction (MI; “heart attack”) in which coronary arteries become blocked preventing oxygenation of the heart.
