  Molecular cancer therapeutics activated by radioisotope-generated Cerenkov radiation
  Dr J Knight, Dr R Pal, Dr K Rankin
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The beta-particles emitted by certain medical radioisotopes can travel faster than light through the human body. When this happens, a photonic boom - comparable to a sonic boom – releases energy in the form of Cerenkov radiation which has a characteristic blue glow.
  Developing New Tools for the Chemical Diversification of Peptide Scaffolds
  Dr SL Cobb, Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Waring
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides are useful leads for the development of new drugs against a wide range of diseases. They occupy the chemical space between small molecules and antibodies and as such they can reach or selectively inhibit drug targets that these other molecules cannot.
  The contradictory functions of carotenoid-based light-harvesters: Understanding energy harvesting and dissipation in the Fucoxanthin-Chlorophyll Protein (FCP)
  Dr C Duffy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  Establishing NMR chemical shifts as reliable reporters of atomic charge distributions in enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Prof P Popelier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are not only central to life but also to the growing need to harness elements of the natural world to the benefit of mankind.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  Understanding and minimizing radiation damage in breast tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Miss C Kirwan, Prof S Cartmell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human beings are subjected to many forms of radiation both natural (principally ultraviolet radiation [UVR]) and artificial (diagnostic and therapeutic X-rays).
  Live cell imaging under extreme conditions
  Dr B Baum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complex eukaryotic cells first appeared on earth over a billion years ago. It is now thought that they arose as the result of the establishment of a symbiotic partnership between an archaeal host cell and a bacterium, which went on to become the mitochondrion.
  Investigating the role of DNA structures genetic diseases such as cancer and diabetes (WALLERZU20SF)
  Dr Z Waller, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick double helix but it can actually adopt many different types of structure depending on the sequence and environmental conditions.
  PhD in Chemistry - Meta-Smart: Merging de novo designed biomolecules with plasmonic metamaterials for new technologies
  Prof M Kadodwala
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We live in a world in which individuals have unprecedented access to data on their environment, health and wellbeing. This ranges from information provided by fitness bands, to the energy smart meters that are found in every home.
