  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.

  Defining ubiquitous chromatin opening element (UCOE®) molecular mechanisms of action to expedite their biotechnological applications
  Dr M Antoniou, Prof J Strouboulis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ubiquitous chromatin opening elements (UCOE®s) consist of one or more promoters with associated methylation-free CpG island from housekeeping genes (Neville et al.
  Targeting ageing: Genes and compounds with pro-longevity, health-preserving effects
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is arguably the major biomedical challenge of the 21st century. In model organisms, the process of ageing can be manipulated by both genetic manipulations and dietary interventions.
  Immunity to Influenza and Ebola viruses
  Prof A Townsend
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This started with the investigation of T cell recognition of peptides derived from intracellular proteins of Influenza (Townsend et al 1986), that evolved into the development of a live attenuated, single cycle Influenza vaccine, based on these principles (Powell et al, 2012; Baz et al, 2015, Holzer 2018).

  (BBSRC DTP) A computational model for improving catalytic rate in enzymes
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr S De Visser, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Directed evolution of enzyme activity is an established methodology, generating biocatalysts that are of benefit for biotechnology, for example in bioenergy production [Turner 2009].
  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Development of a novel processing control strategy for bacterial biofilm monitoring in the food industry
  Dr E Velliou
Application Deadline: 28 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a phenomenon through which bacteria become resistant to standard decontamination methods, e.g., antibiotics, classical sterilisation.
