  (BBSRC DTP) Functional characterisation of orphan cytochrome P450 enzymes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Prof A Munro, Dr S Hay, Prof D Leys, Prof J Waltho
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) poses a major threat to human health worldwide and remains the biggest killer of humans among infectious diseases.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  (BBSRC DTP) Reductive dehalogenation and detoxification of pollutants
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay, Prof A Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the key pollutants released into the environment are halogenated organic molecules, containing at least one or more chloride or bromide atoms.
  (BBSRC DTP) In silico enzymology: A mechanistic study of prenylated flavin-dependent enzymes
  Dr S Hay, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many enzymes make use of cofactors to aid in catalysis, as they offer alternative reactivities to the canonical amino acids found in the enzyme active site.
  (BBSRC DTP) Isonitrile synthesizing nonheme iron enzymes: substrate scope and potential
  Dr A Green, Prof M Greaney, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to rationally design an enzyme for any desired transformation would have major impacts across the pharmaceutical and wider chemical sectors, leading to more efficient and sustainable synthetic routes to high value chemicals.
  EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWANO)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Established in 2013 with EPSRC funding and now supported by the University of Manchester and industry, Graphene NOWNANO CDT offers PhD training in science, technology and applications of the fast-growing family of two-dimensional materials.
  (BBSRC DTP) Biological photocatalysis for sustainable synthesis
  Prof M Greaney, Dr A Green, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop biological photochemistry, using proteins as catalysts for new chemical transformations under visible light irradiation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Inhibition of SR protein kinase 1 with designer peptides
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) have fundamental biological importance, and using inhibitors to block their biological networks in a pathway-defined manner is a major pharmaceutical goal.
  (BBSRC DTP) A moving account of degradation: receptor signalling, endosomes and motor proteins
  Prof P Woodman, Prof V Allan, Prof M Lowe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endosomes are hubs for regulating multiple signaling pathways, because endosomal sorting determines the fate of cell surface signalling receptors.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the role of RNA binding proteins in the regulation of NF-kappa B dynamics, inflammation and cell death
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Muldoon
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NF-kB is a key signalling system that controls inflammation and cell fate, dysregulation of which can lead to inflammatory disease or cancer.
