  PhD studentship available within the C3Bio Doctoral Training Initiative. Development of a low-cost microfluidic transducer for electric noise diagnostics of bacterial infections in low resource settings
  Dr P Rocha
Application Deadline: 9 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project team. Dr Paulo Rocha, Dr Nuno Reis & Dr Brian Jones. Project enquiries. Dr Paulo Rocha ([email protected]). PROJECT. Bacterial infections with ‘super-bugs’ such as Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) or Septicaemia affect millions of people worldwide.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Adhesion of Tissues to Percutaneous Implants
  Dr M Roldo, Prof G Blunn, Dr G Tozzi
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded three-year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health and will be supervised by Dr Marta Roldo, Prof Gordon Blunn and Dr Gianluca Tozzi.
  Self-triggered smart biomaterials
  Dr C McCoy, Dr N Irwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major problem associated with medical devices is infection. With infection rates of approaching 100% in some devices, ways to prevent formation of bacterial biofilm on medical device surfaces are urgently required.
  Nanotopographical modulation of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Surface topography has been known to alter bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. It has become evident that surface hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity and effective contact area are the two main factors that are responsible for the different bacterial adhesive behaviour on surfaces.
  Bioinspired nanotopographies to control bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Dr R D'Sa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is predicted that the rise of resistant strains of bacteria and the ever-growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will be the cause of 10 million deaths annually, and will burden the global economy by £64 trillion.
  Visible-light-activated photocatalytic coatings to combat hospital infections
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contamination of hospital surfaces plays an important role in the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens. Traditional cleaning and disinfection methods are proven largely ineffective for complete decontamination of hospital surfaces by microbes, particularly multidrug-resistant ‘superbugs’.
  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards, Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 23 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and healthier processed foods are urgently needed. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not readily digested to glucose in the upper-gut, and therefore enters the colon.
  Developing a smart non-antibiotic cerium-containing biodegradable wound dressing for treating chronic ulcers
  Dr I Ortega, Dr J Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The treatment of long-term ulcers is becoming a major clinical problem, being currently the fourth biggest cost to the NHS in the UK.
