  Characterising Colourful Protein Complexes for Biotechnological Applications
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Leney, Prof H J Cooper
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Microalgae are becoming of increasing economic interest due to their application as a natural source of compounds such as lipids, pigments, proteins and polysaccharides.
  Viral assemblies for ultrasensitive sensing
  Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
In the future there will be a number grand challenges that civilisation will have to address. Many of these challenges are likely to be addressed through nanoscale engineering.
  A nanotechnology solution to one of drug discovery’s last challenges.
  Prof T R Dafforn, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Membrane proteins represent 30-40% of the cellular proteome and carry out a wide range of fundamental biological process. These include sensing the outside world, helping maintain cellular structure and homeostasis.
  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
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.
  Improving the performance of bacteriocins as natural food additives through the use of nanotechnology.
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
One of the major challenges to modern food industry is the demand by consumers of products that look appealing for longer periods of time and the preference by consumers for minimally processed products that do not contain “chemical” preservatives.
  Nucleating the growth of biofilms for biocatalysis with polymer chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Bacteria often attach to surfaces in the form of biofilms. Biofilms represent a problem in many medical and industrial settings as they are physically tough and hard to kill or remove from surfaces.
  Biological Behaviour of Metal-modified DNA
  Prof J Tucker, Dr S Horswell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This PhD project will attempt to answer the following question. "To what extent can artificial nucleic acids,[1] in which the components of DNA are replaced with metal-containing units, mimic the structure and function of naturally occurring nucleic acids?".
  Evolution and synthetic engineering of bioenergetic organelles
  Dr I Johnston, Dr G Bassel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Mitochondria and chloroplasts were originally independent organisms, which were engulfed and harnessed by an ancestral cell in the distant evolutionary past.
  Epigenetic control of transgenerational genome plasticity
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Epigenetics is the major discipline studying heritable changes of gene activity that do not involve changes in the underlying DNA sequence.
  Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) Funded PhD Studentships
 . Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP). Funded PhD Studentships. Deadline. 6th January 2019. Number of Studentships available.
