  (A*STAR) Unravelling the metabolic basis of Aspergillus fumigatus adaptation to combinatorial stress conditions
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aspergillus fumigatus is an environmental saprophytic fungus that lives ubiquitously in the soil. This fungus can also infect the lungs of individuals with any kind of immune imbalance, causing a broad range of diseases collectively termed aspergillosis.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Analysing the efficiency of protein secretion using Lattice Lightsheet Microscopy
  Prof V Allan, Prof M Lowe, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein-based biopharmaceuticals are of tremendous importance both for providing disease treatments, and for the UK economy. They are typically manufactured using mammalian host cells, but some are much harder to produce than others.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Identification of cell types and subtypes within tissues by mass spectrometry imaging
  Dr A McMahon, Prof K Williams, Dr N Thacker
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will bring together the capabilities of the University’s Imaging research group, and the extensive mass spectrometry imaging facilities of the Medicine Discovery Catapult at Alderley Park, at Waters at their Wilmslow site and using a DESI-imaging mass spectrometer, placed by Waters, at the University.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Jellyfish-collagen hydrogels for culture and differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells and 3D cartilage bioprinting
  Dr J Bella, Dr S Richardson, Dr M Domingos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented graduate from a relevant biomedical or materials science degree to develop next-generation, sustainable collagen-based scaffolds for stem cell culture, differentiation, and 3D bioprinting, aimed at tissue regeneration applications.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Understanding and predicting the immunogenicity of therapeutic protein products
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr R Dearman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopharmaceuticals, or therapeutic protein products (TPPs) have been in widespread clinical use for several decades. They comprise a wide range of pharmaceutical products, from vaccines to hormones, cytokines and monoclonal antibodies.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Use of genomic technologies to enhance food safety and authenticity
  Dr M Bromley, Prof P Bower
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The annual cost to UK health service due to food related ill health is £6Bn. In addition food fraud is estimated to cost UK business in the region of £11 Bn per annum.
  (BBSRC DTP) A moving account of degradation: receptor signalling, endosomes and motor proteins
  Prof P Woodman, Prof V Allan, Prof M Lowe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endosomes are hubs for regulating multiple signaling pathways, because endosomal sorting determines the fate of cell surface signalling receptors.
  (BBSRC DTP) Brain integration and processing of ingestive signals
  Prof S Luckman, Dr G D'Agostino
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

After meal consumption, the brain evaluates the value of its contents and relays this information via neuronal circuits connecting the periphery with the brain (1,2).
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) Characterising the proteolytic network of plant cathepsin B
  Dr P Gallois, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Programmed Cell Death (PCD) is a process that is critical to all organisms for development and defence against pathogens. The process of PCD in plants does not mirror what has been described in animal apoptosis and represents a novel alternative pathway still to be fully discovered.
