  Aldehyde dehydrogenase expression and function in cancer stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr A Mardaryev, Prof A Locke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDHs) catalyse the oxidation and detoxification of reactive endogenous and exogenous aldehydes into carboxylic acids via NAD+ coupled reduction.
  Biodegradable composite materials (Bio-PolyMOFs) for applications in targeted delivery of drugs to improve healthcare and reduce antimicrobial resistance in developing countries and worldwide
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr A L Kelly, Dr M Katsikogianni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major global challenges and is linked to the use of unnecessarily high doses of orally administered antibiotics following medical surgery and infections.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials.
  Cytochromes P450 in Cancer: Opportunities for Development of Personalised Medicine
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The improved understanding of cancer biology provides opportunities for the development of molecular targeted therapies.
  Defining active immunoprotection and regulatory T cell promotion in hair follicles
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof K McElwee, Dr N Botchkareva
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the non-scarring inflammatory hair loss disease Alopecia areata (AA) lymphocytes specifically target hair follicles (HFs) and disrupt hair growth.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Prof A M Graham, Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vein graft failure is a significant issue in cardiovascular disease patients, with restenosis caused by alterations in flow patterns leading to remodelling and disease progression.
  Development of heterocyclic pharmacophores using diversity-oriented synthesis
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Prof L Patterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) is a modern chemical tool, which aims to synthesise small molecules that cover new chemical space with the possibility of finding unexplored biological targets or pathways that may be important for disease progression.
  Development of highly stable porous composite membranes for separation of greenhouse gases
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Prof S Rimmer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers, which are known as secondary building units or SBUs.
