  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Investigating neuronal patterning and development
  Dr F Mackenzie, Prof A Walker, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD will study molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal patterning and neural development using ex vivo/in vitro methods (mouse/human tissue/cells) and/or in vivo methods (invertebrates).
  Role of telomere attrition in cardiometabolic disease risk
  Dr J Buxton, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Common conditions such as Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are complex disorders caused by a myriad of interacting genetic and lifestyle factors.
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
  Beta cell regeneration for diabetes therapy
  Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells hold great potential for the creation of artifical insulin-producing beta cells to treat diabetes. Matrix and matricellular components play a critical role in supporting the differentiation of stem cells into mature, functional beta cells.
  Comparative genomic analysis of variant features within the Neisseria spp.
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of rapid genome sequencing had generated an explosion of bacterial genome sequence data, much of which has not been fully explored and investigated.
