  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Intelligent Engineering of Bacterial Genomes
  Prof R Breitling, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to establish methodology for the intelligent engineering of biological hosts for the production of high-value drugs and chemicals.
  (BBSRC DTP) Plant-based production of a vaccine against gonorrhoea
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhoea is caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. N. gonorrhoeae is a close relative of Neisseria meningitidis, which causes meningococcal meningitis.
  (BBSRC DTP) Tackling the genomic dark matter through system engineering of ncRNAs in yeast
  Prof D Delneri, Prof P Cai
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are thought as of genomic "dark matter" for which the biological significance has been largely underestimated.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Exploitation of P450 BM3 variants for production of valuable drug metabolites
  Prof A Munro, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recommended that human drug metabolites (as well as their parent drugs) should be subject to testing for safety/toxicity.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Discovery and Engineering of Expanded Halogenases for Late Stage Enzymatic Functionalisation
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to discover and engineer novel enzymes (biocatalysts) that can affect regioselective halogenation of complex molecules enabling more efficient and environmentally sustainable production of pharmaceuticals which are urgently required to combat disease.
  (BBSRC DTP) Cytoskeletal re-arrangements leading to correct neuron polarisation during vertebrate CNS development
  Dr R Das, Prof V Allan, Dr S Herbert
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Neuronal differentiation during embryonic development is a fundamentally important process that ultimately results in the formation of functional neural circuitry.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the developing microbiome in new-born babies
  Dr S Cruickshank, Prof A McBain, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome contains a large diverse community of microorganisms with our bacteria being best understood. These bacteria play crucial roles for our health such as aiding in the digestion of food, production of key vitamins and metabolites and programming out immune system.
  (BBSRC DTP) The physiology and energetics of locomotion in turtles: linking performance from the organismal to the cellular level
  Dr J Codd, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turtles have the most distinctive body plans of vertebrates (1). Turtles appear in the fossil record over 220 million years ago. Turtles are unique among vertebrates in that their whole body is enclosed within a rigid bony shell, composed of the carapace and plastron, that protects from predators.
  (BBSRC DTP) Metals and bacterial virulence: overcoming metal intoxication during infection
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton, Prof J Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen, being the leading bacterial cause of human acute gastroenteritis and responsible for an estimated 0.5 billion cases each year.
