  (BBSRC DTP) Engineering novel stress-resilient microalgae strains as improved platform strains for industrial biotechnology
  Dr J Pittman, Dr P Gallois, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microalgae have potential as photosynthetic cell factories for the production of chemicals and metabolites that can be used for industrial applications or as platform strains for the production of recombinant proteins.
  (BBSRC DTP) The timing and modes of macroevolutionary change: molecules, morphology, and simulations
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr R Garwood, Dr R Sansom, Dr M Sutton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Macroevolution occurs over time spans of millions of years. Two approaches can be taken in identifying and understanding macroevolutionary patterns and processes - empirical and theoretical.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of anti-cancer agents and biomarkers that target intrinsically disordered regions of transcription factors and protein kinases
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The controlled manipulation of transcription factors, protein kinases and protein phosphatases is central to improving our understanding of cellular processes and, importantly, in the development of next-generation therapeutics for a variety of cancers.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering, i.e.
  (BBSRC DTP) Synthesis and identification of highly efficient polymeric nanoparticles for transfection of cells
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr S Jones, Prof M Shaver
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene therapy transfers genetic material into cells to provide new functions, including as potential interventions and treatments for a wide range of human diseases.
  (BBSRC DTP) Solubilising Insoluble Proteins using Self-Assembling Supramolecular Structures
  Dr I Riddell, Dr L Wong, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein insolubility is a common problem for researchers working with isolated proteins that, due to hydrophobic patches on their surface, misfold and/or aggregate outside of their natural environment.
  (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) 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) 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.
