  Biotechnological production microbial lipids rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
  Dr A Chatzifragkou, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Linolenic acid (GLA, ω-6 family) is a medicinally and nutritionally important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a broad spectrum of applications, extending from food supplements to anti-cancer formulations.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round
Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
  Valorisation of bakery waste - developing innovative processing strategies for the separation and functionalisation of polysaccharides and proteins
  Dr D Charalampopoulos, Dr A Chatzifragkou, Dr J Rodriquez Garcia
Applications accepted all year round
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) approximately 1/3 of the food produced globally on an annual basis is wasted across the food supply chain, amounting to approximately 1.3 billion tons.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round
The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  Next generation wearable healthcare sensors
  Prof S Sherratt, Prof W Harwin, Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy.
  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry.
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  Rapid blood platelet analysis: linking micro-capillary assays to novel digital microscopy and smartphone technology
  Dr CI Jones, Dr A Edwards, Prof W Harwin
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Blood clots allow us to recover from tissue injury. Platelets are small blood cells that prevent bleeding by clumping together to form clots.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round
"Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus.
