  Bioinspired worm-like nanoparticles for the delivery of anti-cancer stem cell agents
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer relapse and metastasis, the leading cause of cancer-associated deaths, is strongly linked to the existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a small sub-population of cancer cells defined by their ability to self-renew, differentiate, and form secondary tumours.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  Enzyme mechanism through advanced techniques
  Dr P C E Moody
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is for up to 4 years and supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship. “Traditional” protein X-ray crystallography has contributed enormously to our understanding of enzyme mechanisms.
  Pressure-Related Skin Injury: Environmental Factors and Design Solutions
  Dr A Lloyd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Environmental Ergonomics Research Centre is interested in how a mechanistic understanding of Environmental Physiology and Medicine can be used to improve human performance and health through translational research.
  Engineering Medicine Manufacture Processes for Cell and Stem Cell Based Therapies
  Dr R Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell and Stem Cell based therapies are revolutionising medical treatment. Immunotherapies such as CAR-T cells are effectively treating previously terminal diseases and are poised to reach mass markets.
  Modelling memristive artificial neurons
  Prof S Saveliev, Dr P Borisov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the brain operate as a computer? In short the answer is no, but why? We use logic when thinking and coming to a decision by linking events in a causal relationship.
  The effects of mechanical and electrical stimulation on the maturity of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle undergoes hypertrophy in response to exercise and mechanical loading, however although this response is well studied and established, the molecular sensors and signaling pathways which produce this response are not fully elucidated.
  Towards a Tissue Engineered Model of a Joint on a Chip
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project aims to develop a multi-tissue platform that integrates many of the structural tissue components of a musculoskeletal joint; bone, tendon, muscle, cartilage and ligament.
  Using a novel 3D co-culture model to define metabolic flux maps of different cancer cell types in response to physical activity
  Dr M Morris, Dr A Islam, Prof M.P. Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During exercise, and in the presence of sufficient oxygen, glucose is metabolised by muscle cells to produce pyruvate, a metabolic intermediate which is fed into the Kreb’s cycle in the mitochondria to produce large amounts of energy.
  Vascularisation of tissue engineered skeletal muscle
  Prof M.P. Lewis, Dr A Capel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering strategies have created a large number of functional tissues constructed from cells and matrix components over the past two decades.
