  Reprogramming the innate immune system to treat malignancy: targeting ovarian cancer
  Prof M A Vickers, Prof I Stansfield, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the major advances achieved in recent years by redirecting the adaptive immune system to recognise cancer cells (notably monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors and chimaeric antigen receptor T cells), the therapeutic potential of innate immunity remains underexploited.
  An improved C. elegans model of Alzheimer’s Disease to monitor neuronal signalling activity
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen, Dr S Clapcote
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is one of the most common form of neurodegenerative diseases known today, affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Clinical and molecular correlates of response to first line treatment in oral lichen planus
  Dr K Hijazi, Prof J Gibson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oral lichen planus is a chronic disease of the lining of the mouth that causes pain and increases the risk of oral cancer. The negative impact of oral lichen planus on quality of life has been proven.
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Optimisation of anaerobic digestion to produce chemicals and methane - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  In Silico design and chemoenzymatic synthesis of bioactive cyclic and stapled peptides
  Dr W Houssen, Dr S Dall'Angelo, Dr G S Bewick
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic and modified cyclic peptides are very appealing scaffolds especially as therapeutics with several examples reach the clinic e.g.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the restoration of UK Carbon sinks using geophysics and microbiology
  Dr R Doherty, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Occupying just 3% of the Earth’s land surface, peatlands are our largest carbon store on land. Worldwide they store 550 gigatonnes of carbon, representing 42% of all soil carbon and exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the world’s forests.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
