  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Prof H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  EASTBIO: Understanding the pathogenesis of life-threatening Burkholderia cenocepacia infections using blocking antibodies and novel chemistry scaffolds to untangle complex aspects of AMR
  Prof A Porter, Dr S Palliyil, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

Supervisors. Professor Andy Porter (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/a.porter. Dr Soumya Palliyil (University of Aberdeen).
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  Mapping Antarctic marine microbial diversity and identification of bioactive molecules with an emphasis on antimicrobials
  Prof M Clark, Dr K Howell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most serious threats to global human health, resulting in 700,000 deaths per year. This figure is currently rising year on year.
  Development of a Spores-on-a-Chip Microfluidic Chemostat for Exploring the Responsiveness of Bacterial Spore Communities
  Dr C Stanley
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Stanley Lab will be moving to the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, the UK’s leading Bioengineering department, and has a fully funded PhD studentship to develop Spores-on-a-Chip microfluidic technology to gain a deeper insight into bacterial spore germination.
  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.

  Prof L Zidek, Dr J Hritz
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microtubule associated protein 2c (MAP2c) is a key factor regulating microtubule dynamics in developing brain neurons, and an example of an intrinsically disordered proteins with an important physiological function and detectable structure-function relationship.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: RNA modifications: cracking the RNA code in health and disease
