This project will combine multiple single molecule imaging techniques applied to model membranes [1] to study the mechanisms of peptide interaction of established and novel AMPs.
  PhD in Engineering: Fundamental interactions of cells with electromagnetic fields
  Dr C Williams
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Underpinning the function of any biosensor is the fundamental interaction that leads to the reporter signal of the sensor. Within this IDTH, we are already using microwaves for the rapid release of target DNA from cells, and study the fundamental interactions of microwaves with living cells.

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiff University has established a new interdisciplinary training hub (IDTH) for a postgraduate student training and research program that addresses the urgent need for state-of-the-art biosensors and diagnostics.
  Unravelling the dynamics of lipid bilayers and membrane proteins and their reaction to toxins and viral infection on the single molecule level using label-free microscopy.
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr MY Young, Dr O Castell
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 30% of the proteins in a cell are membrane proteins, which represent more than 60% of all known drug targets and play a critical role in both infection and immunity.
