  A randomised pilot study of a theory-based intervention to improve appropriate polypharmacy in older people in primary care (PolyPrime)
  Prof C Hughes, Dr H Barry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Historically, polypharmacy was viewed negatively (too many medicines), but the advent of multimorbidity and the plethora of treatment guidelines have led to prescribing of multiple medicines, particularly in the older population.
  Clinical application of machine learning algorithms to determine appropriate antibiotic use in children with Gram-negative bacteria infections
  Dr Y Hsia, Prof C Hughes
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital health is a growing and productive field in recent years. The application of machine learning (ML) techniques in electronic healthcare databases has been successfully used for clinical diagnosis, outcome prediction, and disease progression.
  Computational prospecting of bacteriophage genomes and prophages for biotechnologically and pharmaceutically relevant enzymes
  Dr T Skvortsov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of bacteriophage genomes available in public databases keeps growing, but the problem of accurate prediction of functions of bacteriophage genes remains far from being solved.
  Design and realisation of nanomedicine using computer simulation and smart nanofracturing method
  Dr Y Tian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology in healthcare sector, for the diagnosis, monitoring, prevention and treatment of many unmet clinical conditions.
  Enhancing intracellular delivery of antibiotics using cold atmospheric plasma
  Dr P Flynn, Dr B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric pressure non-thermal plasma or simply cold plasmas is a partially ionized gas generated at atmospheric pressure, at temperatures suitable for treatment of heat sensitive surfaces such as skin.
  Enhancing Macrophage-Biofilm Interaction using Non-Thermal Plasma
  Dr B Gilmore, Dr P Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to generate plasmas (quasi-neutral, wholly or partially ionised gases) at ambient or tissue tolerable temperatures has given rise to the nascent field of plasma medicine.
  LONG-ACTING MICRONEEDLE DELIVERY SYSTEMS
  Dr R Donnelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microneedle arrays are minimally-invasive devices that painlessly, and without drawing blood, penetrate the skin’s stratum corneum barrier.
  Microfabricated Engineered Systems for Sustained Ocular Drug Delivery
  Dr R Thakur, Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal diseases that originate at the back of the eye, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), represent the leading causes of vision loss in the Western world.
  Molecular interactions in solution for multi-component crystallisation
  Dr K Edkins, Dr J Holbrey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crystallisation is probably one of the most important unit operations in pharmaceutical industry for purification, as well as the generation of materials appropriate for formulation and application to the patient.
  Nano-engineered Delivery Systems for the Targeted Delivery of Oncology Drugs for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
  Dr H McCarthy, Dr N Buckley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide accounting for 11.6% of the global burden. The standard of care (SoC) chemotherapy typically involves a ‘cocktail’ of drugs which confer debilitating side-effects, resulting in sub-optimal dosing with a reduced clinical efficacy.
