Evolution and engineering of non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (WILKINSON_J22DTP1)

The discovery & development of penicillin sparked ‘The Golden Age of Antibiotics’ which spanned the 1940’s to 1960’s when most major classes of antibiotics were discovered. Read more

EASTBIO The role of host membrane protein interactions in herpesvirus nuclear egress and SARS-CoV-2 double membrane vesicle formation

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
    Viruses have many critical interactions with host cell membranes that mostly take advantage of host cell proteins. The Schirmer and Graham labs have 2 lines of investigation involving virus interactions with host cell membrane proteins that could be individually or jointly carried further in this PhD project. . Read more

Mechanobiology of the gut microbiota

The Persat lab (. p-lab.science. ) investigates how mechanical forces regulate the physiology of bacteria, both pathogens and from the microbiota, and how this impacts the process of host colonization. Read more

EASTBIO Deep learning for optimisation of cell factories

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Biotechnology is a $1tn industry poised to help against global challenges in the health, food and energy sectors. One of the most promising biotechnologies are “cell factories”, where genetically engineered microbes are employed for converting cheap feedstocks into high-value chemicals. Read more

EASTBIO Tackling the functional role of multisensory interactions in behavioural benefits: A combined EEG and computational modelling approach

The availability of multiple senses is highly beneficial to control behaviour. Different senses not only increase the spectrum of perceivable signals but also provide redundant signals that, by combination, enable better estimates of external events and/or faster achievements of subjective goals. Read more

EASTBIO A synthetic biology approach to design intelligent organoids for the study of host-microbe interactions

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Organoids are self-organised, 3D structures generated in vitro from adult or pluripotent stem cells, that exhibit similar functionality as their tissue of origin. Read more

EASTBIO Novel aptamer tools for Synthetic Biology and the control in cell and gene therapies

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Aptamers are rapidly developing oligonucleotide tools that consist of single stranded DNA or RNA molecules that are capable of binding nearly any ligand of choice with high affinity and specificity due to their specific three-dimensional structures. Read more

High performance regenerated silk fibres with biomimetic structure

Natural silk is a remarkable natural fibre produced by silkworms, spiders and other arthropods. For example, spider silk is the strongest known natural fibre, with a toughness that exceeds Kevlar. Read more

Development of novel biotechnologies for scientific and medical applications

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (Imperial College London, King’s College London or UCL).

(BBSRC DTP) A synthetic vaccine against the parasitic worm Schistosoma mansoni

Schistosomiasis is an infection caused by a parasitic blood flook, Schistosoma. Approximately 260 million people are estimated to carry the infection, mainly concentrated in low income countries, causing high levels of morbidity and mortality. Read more

An explainable AI platform development for breast cancer risk prediction from mammograms (ZEBINT_U22SCIEC)

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy affecting women worldwide and the fifth leading cause of cancer death. Survival of breast cancer patients in the past few decades has mostly improved through screening, especially if tumours are diagnosed at early stages. Read more
