  Kinase regulation of HOX transcription factors – a potential target in cancer?
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Prof R Morgan, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The HOX genes are a family of transcription factors that have a number of important functions in cancer, including cell survival and metastasis.
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  New strategies in integrin antagonism
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors which mediate cell-cell and cell-ECM adhesion, and signalling across the cell membrane involved in pathways controlling cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, cell survival and apoptosis.
  Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
  Polymers for treating amoebic infections in India
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amoebic parasitic infections are widespread in the tropics. Amoebic dysentery can be fatal if the parasite progresses to the brain.
  Polysialyltransferases as a target in metastatic cancer
  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.
  Rational Control of Crystal Morphology
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The external shape of crystalline particles (called morphology) is of paramount importance in a wide range of applications, in particular pharmaceuticals and pigments.
  Re-purposing established drugs for the resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.
