  Determining the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Macro- and Micro-plastics in Soil and Their Impact on Soil Function
  Dr E Pagaling, Prof L Dawson, Dr S Devalla, Dr R Prabhu
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Current global production of plastics has reached over 300 million metric tons and is predicted to reach 1200 million metric tons by 2050.
  Digital Design and Fabrication of Internal Reinforcement and Structural Formwork Systems for New Concrete Structures
  Dr S Spadea, Dr M Ciantia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The aim of this project is to improve whole life construction productivity by defining new methods for the design and construction of durable concrete structures with complex geometries.
  Advanced Anti-bacterial Coating for Preventing Catheter-Associated Infections
  Dr Q Zhao
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Urinary catheters are used as soon as a patient cannot control urine drain as a consequence of incontinence or urine retention.
  Investigating Deep Sea Mineral Nodule Mining Strategies and Equipment
  Dr M J Brown, Dr M Ciantia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
With the current focus on energy storage and replacement of fossil fuel driven vehicles with alternative power sources, a future shortage of global precious and important minerals has been recognised.
  Enhancing Pile Drivability and Decommissioning in Chalk: An Experimental and Micromechanical Study
  Dr M Ciantia, Dr M J Brown
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Chalk covers much of the UK and is widespread under the North and Baltic Seas. Foundations in chalk often pose particular problems because the complex collapsible rock behaviour.
  Predicting the conversion of LRRK2 carriers to Parkinson disease: the role of blood and CSF biomarkers
  Dr E Sammler
Applications accepted all year round
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting up to 1:500 people over the age of 50 years.1 The risk of developing Parkinson’s…
  Enabling Precision Medicine through Oesophageal Cancer Proteogenomics
  Prof R Petty, Prof A I Lamond
Applications accepted all year round
Capitalising on technological advances in next generation sequencing, genomic landscaping projects have provided a comprehensive catalogue of genetic abnormalities in human cancer, and in some tumour types provided classifications useful for clinical decision making.
  Interdisciplinary investigation of the role of amino acids in immunometabolic responses to metformin in humans
  Dr G Rena, Prof C Lang
Applications accepted all year round
There is overwhelming evidence that inflammation contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD)but counterbalancing this is evidence from meta-analysis of randomised control trials that many existing anti-inflammatory drugs, such as COX2 inhibitors and anti-TNF drugs, tend if anything to exacerbate risk of CVD.
  Interdisciplinary investigation of a large effect of sulfasalazine on HbA1c
  Dr G Rena, Prof E Pearson
Applications accepted all year round
The anti-inflammatory drug sulfasalazine, which is used in rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, was reported earlier to suppress HbA1c in a small cohort of patients [1].
  Regulation of mTOR by pharmacological activators of transcription factor Nrf2
  Prof A Dinkova-Kostova
Applications accepted all year round
The mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a kinase, which is the core component of two protein complexes termed mTOR complex 1 (mTORC1) and 2 (mTORC2), and has a fundamental role in the maintenance of cellular homeostasis.
