In 2015 the General Pharmaceutical Council reviewed its Standards of Conduct, Ethics and Performance, aiming to ensure that patients and others are “confident that they are receiving care from professionals who are wholly focused on delivering patient-centred care” (GPhC, 2015).
  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.
  Biofilm disruption as an initial step in a novel strategy for treatment of chronic wounds based on multi-functional liposomal nanocarriers
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr X Liu, Dr S Shnyder, Dr C Chang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cost to the NHS of caring for patients with chronic wounds is conservatively estimated to be £4.5-5.7bn/year, or around 4% of the total expenditure on health.
  Biomarkers of Genotoxic and Reprotoxic Effects after chemical exposure in vitro in human cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof D Anderson, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In human monitoring procedures, measurements obtained from endpoints to determine genetic damage are sometimes referred to as biomarkers.
  Building scholarly communities of practice with an active and collaborative learning pedagogy (team-based learning (TBL))
  Research Group: Education Innovation Research and Development
  Dr G Quinn, Dr S Twedell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A ‘Community of Practice’ is a group of people who share a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.
  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.
  Computation and Confirmation Experiments on Solvated Hydrogen Bonding Complexes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The creation of complexes between polymeric compounds drives many industrial / biological processes and has been extensively studied in well-defined biological compounds with uniform structures.
  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.
  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).
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis.
  Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr C Sutton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism.
  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.
