Molecular transport of water and solvents through organic crystal lattices

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The project aims to understand, and measure the transport rate of water and organic solvents through crystal lattices. Building on work in the large EU project ProPAT, this will be achieved by measuring the desorption rate of solvent from crystals using NIR. Read more

Understanding the structural consequences of ribosome specialisation

Protein synthesis by ribosomes (translation) and its regulation is essential to life. While it has been traditionally thought that ribosomes were not involved in the regulation of translation, it is now becoming clear that they do contribute. Read more

Investigation of antagonism of multiple RGD-binding integrins as a therapeutic strategy in advanced head and neck cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Background. 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. Read more

Phenotypic characterisation of red and white blood cells from patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is escalating at an alarming rate, with almost 10% of the UK population suffering from T2DM or in a pre-diabetic state. Read more

Evaluation of potential therapeutics in a mouse model of KCNT1-related epilepsy

  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
Human mutations in the KCNT1 gene, which encodes a sodium-activated potassium channel, results in severe and drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. Read more

Carnegie School of Sport Funded Postgraduate Research Student Programme

Carnegie School of Sport Funded Postgraduate Research Student Programme. Fully funded PhD studentships (UK/EU Fees and stipend) and MRes Scholarships available!. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize. Read more

Domain-aware deep learning models for fast and accurate biomechanical simulation

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Background. Physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) provide a powerful means of incorporating domain knowledge into the training of deep learning models, so as to improve their accuracy and reliability in simulating complex real systems. Read more

International PhD Academy: Medical Research

The International PhD Academy. Medical Research is based in the Leeds Institute of Medical Research at the University of Leeds, St James's University Hospital Campus. Read more

Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas

  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas. Read more

Sizing up viruses: application of emerging structural techniques for the characterization of rAAVs

Curious how viruses are used to deliver genetic cargoes to cells? Want to know how we can employ this principle in vaccines and fight cancer? Then this CASE PhD studentship at the University of Leeds, in collaboration with AstraZeneca (Cambridge), might be for you. Read more

Immunotherapy: Manipulating T cell metabolism to improve anti-tumour immunity

The induction of immune responses to tumours can provide long-lasting protection from cancer. In this regard, T cells can suppress tumour growth by directly killing cancer cells and by producing inflammatory cytokines. Read more
