  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  Methionine adenosyltransferases in disease and regulation of gene expression
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmethylation, the transfer of a methyl group from one molecule to another, is a fundamental chemical reaction that plays a central role in important biological processes such as gene expression, cell growth and apoptosis.
  Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  Molecular analysis of the dynamic sulfotyrosine proteome
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof P Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The survival of an organism depends upon the ability of different cell types to communicate with each other by assembling the correct complexes of proteins at the correct time in the correct place.
  Mitochondrial protein folding and diseases
  Prof L-Y Lian, Dr D Criddle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many diseases, including cancer and neurological disease, stem from mitochondrial dysfunctions often triggered by sudden elevation of agents such as calcium and reactive oxygen species.
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Dr D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein structural information is crucial for an understanding of protein function and evolution. Currently, there is only experimental data for a tiny fraction of the protein universe.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
