  Bioinspired filomicelles for the effective delivery of antibiotics
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Antibiotics are drugs that are used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria modify their response to antibiotics, making them less effective or even redundant.
  Structure and function of protein complexes of the eukaryotic glycoprotein folding quality control (ERQC) checkpoint enzyme, UGGT
  Dr P Roversi, Dr C Savva
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A wonderfully efficient quality control enzyme in the eukaryotic cell detects and stops glycoproteins that are on the way to be secreted but need time to form properly.
  The effects of cannabinoids on pre- and post-synaptic activity during learning
  Prof N Hartell, Dr M Hamann
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

General Background. Learning and adaptation of behaviour requires long-term changes in the strength of synaptic transmission that in turn lead to alterations in the patterns of neuronal firing.
  Understanding microtubule-actin crosstalk in neuronal cell migration
  Prof A M Fry, Prof I D Forsythe
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This BBSRC-funded 4-year PhD studentship will address the mechanism of action of a microtubule-associated protein, EML4, in promoting microtubule-actin crosstalk and neuronal cell migration [1].
  Molecular Modelling of P2X receptor agonism and antagonism
  Dr R Schmid
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X receptors (P2XRs) form a family of ligand-gated ion channels activated upon binding of extracellular ATP (for review see [1]).
  Revealing molecular mechanisms of gene silencing
  Dr T Schalch, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulation of transcription through chromatin architecture is governed by nucleosome remodelers and chromatin modifying complexes.
  Single-molecule analysis of structure and function of human transcription complexes using DNA origami nano-robots
  Research Group: Structural Biology and Molecular Enzymology
  Dr A Revyakin, Prof D Panne
Application Deadline: 6 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA origami is a rapidly evolving area of nanotechnology in which self-assembly properties of the DNA double helix are harnessed to build three-dimensional structures on the dimensional scale of ~50 nm.
  Network interactions shape the circadian clock in Drosophila melanogaster
  Dr E Rosato, Prof C P Kyriacou
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is an endogenous mechanism that synchronizes almost all behaviour and physiology with the Earth’s 24 hour environmental cycles.
  Exploring the functional and pathological relevance of DJ-1 phosphorylation
  Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DJ-1 is a small conserved protein of 189 residues which is ubiquitously expressed and primarily localized to the cytoplasm, but also found in the nucleus and associated with mitochondria.
  The evolution of the neurogenic gene regulatory networks in Bilateria
  Dr R FEUDA, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of the nervous system is one of the most important innovations in the evolutionary history of animals. Because neurons are present in deuterostome (e.g.
  The effects of air pollution on the behaviour and allergenic potential of fungi
  Dr C Pashley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi are an essential component of the ecosystem, but cause major economic loss through crop damage and infection of domesticated animals and livestock, and affect human health through infections, toxicosis, or allergy.
  Epigenetics in the microbial world
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

New technologies have opened a whole new world relative to non-genetic epigenetic mechanisms for gene regulation both in eukaryotes and prokaryotes.
  Bacteriophages
  Dr A Millard, Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are the most abundant entity on the planet and are known to drive the evolution of their bacterial hosts. Bacteriophages are known to convert harmless bacteria into pathogens by a process known as phage conversion.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human microbiome is essential for human health as it is crucial for the development of immunity, tissue development, host metabolism and protection from various infectious diseases.
  Application of advanced spectroscopic techniques to monitor real-time transformations in aerosolized bovine tuberculosis bacteria
  Dr N Garton, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), a devastating disease affecting global cattle populations.
