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.
  Impact of RhoA deregulation on smooth muscle cell phenotypic dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating healthcare burden. It inflicts significant physical and emotional distress on patients and their carers, and treatment of T2D and its complications accounts for ~10% of the entire NHS budget.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Discovery and Development of Biocatalytic Solutions to Mitigate Microplastic Pollution
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr R Hamed, Dr U Sivarajah
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

Plastic contamination is a great ecological disaster facing modern society; a burden overwhelmingly heaped on the least economically developed countries.
  Investigation of the impact of a student-centred pharmacy curriculum delivered predominantly by Team-Based Learning (TBL) Using a Mixed Methods Approach
  Research Group: Education Innovation Research and Development
  Dr S Jones, Dr S Twedell, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some would consider that there is a misalignment between educational practice and educational research with a high reliance of content delivery and less on information processing.
  An investigation into the effect of team-based learning (TBL) on the development of professionalism in pharmacy students
  Research Group: Education Innovation Research and Development
  Dr G Quinn, Dr S Jones, Dr S Twedell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  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.
  Investigating the mechanism of action of dual antiangiogenic/ antineoplastic drugs using organotypic co-culture of fibroblasts and endothelial cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Elies Gomez, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  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).
  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.
  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
