(BBSRC) Evaluating and modelling synthetic glycosaminoglycan fragment interactions with COVID-19

Oligosaccharides are critical carbohydrate-based biomolecules found widely on cell surfaces and the intra-cellular matrix, and are central to many vital biological regulatory processes, including cell-differentiation, cancer, bacterial and viral infections and inflammation. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Environmental C-F/C-Cl remediation by heme mono-oxygenases and peroxidases.

Fluorinated compounds have been extensively used in herbicides, pesticides as well as insulators and drug molecules. However, as the C-F bond is very strong, these compounds biodegrade poorly, with some being dubbed “forever chemicals” due to their persistence in the environment, often leading to pollution and toxicity.

Deep learning assisted imaging analysis and upscaling (Digital Rock Manchester)

Multi-scale and dynamic imaging techniques have been demonstrated to be one of the powerful tools in materials characterisation. However, the images cannot always satisfy the scientific of industrial requirement. Read more

Multi-scale characterisation of the subsurface system for decarbonation energy (Digital Rock Manchester)

The subsurface system can act as a large-scale, low-cost and safe system for huge storage for either energy or waste, which provides provide important solutions to carbon management in order to tackle the global climate crisis and meet the Net-Zero target. Read more

(BBSRC) Shedding light on the functioning of root-fungal symbioses with high resolution isotopic imaging

In this exciting multi-disciplinary project, you will work at the interface between physical and biological sciences, using the latest technologies in both to address key questions that underlie food security in the face of changing climates. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mapping DNA repair interactions using EPR and molecular modelling

Understanding the process by which DNA breaks are healed via by non-homologous end joining is vital for developing the design and precision of future anti-cancer medicines and the optimization of CRISPR/Cas9-based gene editing. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Enzymatic routes for the oxidative degradation of waste plastics

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application globally. However, there has been a steady accumulation of discarded plastics and there is now growing awareness that they present a significant hazard to the natural environment and human health. Read more

(BBSRC) Directed evolution of quantum mechanical tunnelling in enzymes

Hydrogen-transfer reactions involving hydride, hydrogen atom or proton transfers are ubiquitous in enzyme-catalysed reactions. It is now well established that these reactions can occur via a mechanism involving some degree of quantum mechanical tunnelling (QMT), and thus are a feature of quantum biology. Read more

Optimising ancient DNA (aDNA) extraction in ancient Egyptian skeletal and mummified remains

The University of Manchester’s Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health (d. https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/. ) is offering one funded MPhil project on the study of ancient DNA (aDNA) focus on the extraction optimisation methods of challenging tissues such as soft tissues and skeletal remains from ancient Egypt.
