  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Accurate energy evaluation of receptor-ligand interaction
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drug design routinely uses existing computational methods to evaluate the interaction energy between receptor (protein) and ligand (drug) in molecular docking.
  (BBSRC DTP) Characterising the proteolytic network of plant cathepsin B
  Dr P Gallois, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Programmed Cell Death (PCD) is a process that is critical to all organisms for development and defence against pathogens. The process of PCD in plants does not mirror what has been described in animal apoptosis and represents a novel alternative pathway still to be fully discovered.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP iCASE - Exploring the therapeutic potential of BoNT/X
  Dr A Peden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clostridial neurotoxins are produced by anaerobic bacteria such as Clostridium botulinum. Each toxin molecule has a highly conserved zinc-dependent protease domain that has exquisite specificity for SNARE proteins, a family of molecules required for intracellular trafficking and vesicle fusion.
