  Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment
  Dr E Valleley, Dr L Coletta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC).
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  Local Tracking of Single Ions Dynamics at Solid-Liquid Interfaces
  Dr K Voitchovsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ions are everywhere in nature and technology. They play a crucial role in countless processes, from the salt we use in food to keeping the electrostatic balance in our bodies.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Porosity tailored titanium scaffolds for bone engineering
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Replacing a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, long-lasting and economic manner is the main motivation of this study.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Computer-aided molecular design: improved ligand docking using electronic structure and molecular dynamics simulations
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr N Burton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In structure-based drug design, computational modelling techniques are frequently used to predict the orientation and affinity with which a ligand binds to its protein receptor.
  Using single molecule spectroscopy to determine the drivers of conformational change in protein kinases
  Dr C Dodson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein kinases are central to many cellular processes (eg cell division and the response to external signals) and are current drug targets in cancer, cardiac and inflammatory disease.
  RF and mm-wave imaging using optical modulation
  Prof E Hendry, Dr N Stone
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof Euan Hendry, Prof Nick Stone. External partner. Prof Chris Lawrence (QinetiQ). ***. Radiation in the mm-wave band is intrinsically safe, non-ionising and non-destructive.
