PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  The regulation of Staphylococcus aureus cell division
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staphylococcus aureus is a major human pathogen causing significant death and disease around the world. The problem is exacerbated by the spread of antibiotic resistant strains.
  The role of protein turnover in bacterial life and death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of protein levels in bacterial cells is essential for their growth and survival. This is an interplay between protein synthesis and turnover.
  Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents
  Dr Y Mehellou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although cancer therapeutics, mainly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have been extremely useful in the treatment of cancer, this disease is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
