  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Analysing the efficiency of protein secretion using Lattice Lightsheet Microscopy
  Prof V Allan, Prof M Lowe, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein-based biopharmaceuticals are of tremendous importance both for providing disease treatments, and for the UK economy. They are typically manufactured using mammalian host cells, but some are much harder to produce than others.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Jellyfish-collagen hydrogels for culture and differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells and 3D cartilage bioprinting
  Dr J Bella, Dr S Richardson, Dr M Domingos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented graduate from a relevant biomedical or materials science degree to develop next-generation, sustainable collagen-based scaffolds for stem cell culture, differentiation, and 3D bioprinting, aimed at tissue regeneration applications.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving 3D X-ray Imaging of Live Cells and Soft Tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Prof S Cartmell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical X-ray imaging in three dimensions (commonly referred to as a CT scan) is a key diagnostic tool. Micro-computed X-ray tomography (microCT) has the potential to image relatively large biological samples in 3D at sub-micron resolution.
  Machine learning to locate defects in ultrasonic inspection images
  Prof T Cootes, Dr M Fergie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is important that manufactured components are inspected to identify defects which may cause early failure, particularly in safety critical systems.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Understanding and minimizing radiation damage in breast tissues
  Dr M Sherratt, Miss C Kirwan, Prof S Cartmell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human beings are subjected to many forms of radiation both natural (principally ultraviolet radiation [UVR]) and artificial (diagnostic and therapeutic X-rays).
  Understanding cellulose synthesis in plants
  Prof S Turner, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics derived from fossil fuels. One possibility is to develop novel plastics based on polymers from plants.
