Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more

Doctoral College, explore our PhD opportunities across our research centres

The Centre for Stress and Age-Related Disease. The Centre for Stress and Age-Related Disease comprises internationally-recognised researchers working on multidisciplinary projects at the biology-chemistry interface. Read more

Wastewater sludge to hydrogen via direct biogenic electrolysis

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
Wastewater sludge is the by-product of wastewater treatment plants. Currently, 13.5 million tonnes of dry sludge are produced in Europe annually, 1.5 million tonnes in the UK, and further increase has been projected with population growth. Read more

Engineered materials for wearable and accessible hemodialysis: an interdisciplinary approach

This project is connected to the EPSRC Cross College Strategic Scholarships, HealthCare-CMVM Healthcare Strategic DTP Scholarships, College of Science of Engineering and Colle of Medical and Veterinary medicine (deadline Feb 28th 2023). Read more

Fully Funded PhD studentships available for April 2023

Enzyme-responsive peptide hydrogel as in situ forming long-acting drug delivery implants

One of the key issues in the treatment and prevention of disease is that patients struggle to adhere to the complex dosage regimens of therapies, which often require multiple dosing at very specific times each day. Read more

Are shellfish hotspots for AMR evolution and transmission? [microbiology, evolutionary biology, bio-clinical science, public health, aquaculture] – PhD (Funded)

Location. Environment and Sustainability Institute, Penryn Campus, Cornwall and Cefas in Weymouth. The Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (Cefas) and the University of Exeter have a Strategic Alliance that aims to combine the complementary capabilities and perspectives of both organisations. Read more

High-throughput discovery of novel antibiotics using synthetic microbiology

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a frequent problem in the treatment of disease caused by several clinical bacterial pathogens. In the European Union, antibiotic-resistant infections kill nearly 25,000 patients and represent a total expenditure of £1.5 billion per year. Read more

Cleaner Waste Systems through Simultaneous CO2 Capture and Utilisation

The water and wastewater sector are responsible for around 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Every day, large volumes of sludge are generated, which must be treated to reuse standard but the sector is constrained on the amount of waste it can process due to the poor biodegradability of solids.
