This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  EASTBIO Directed evolution for optimization of industrially-relevant protists (CASE project with MiAlgae Ltd)
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr A Free, Dr T Gutierrez
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

Thraustochytrids are being recognized as important producers of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), particularly docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which have proven to have various beneficial effects on animal and human health [1].
  EASTBIO Engineering novel RNA Polymerases for RNA vaccine production
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser, Dr F Menolascina
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new generation of vaccines is under development by world-leading pharmaceutical companies. These vaccines are based on RNA – a natural molecule that transfers information from the DNA code into the protein antigen in our own bodies so that we effectively produce our own vaccine.
  Precision Medicine DTP - A step change in sensitivity of Raman spectroscopy for accurate and rapid analysis of living cells
  Dr A Downes, Dr H Yin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most methods of cell characterization require a destructive or invasive test, without any real-time readout.
  Nanopore barcoding for detecting metastases in liquid biopsies
  Dr M Castronovo
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Liquid biopsy is set to revolutionized the capacity to detect, assess and monitor the evolution of cancer. This technology has a central role to play in precision medicine and population screening approaches, but remains limited by sensitivity and specificity.
  Understanding and dissecting microbial communities with Raman spectroscopy
  Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have shown that it is possible to label bacteria with heavy isotopes of carbon (13C) and nitrogen (15N) and this incorporation within cellular biomass of heavy isotopes has led to significant shifts in certain vibrational modes from amino acids and nucleic acids that can be readily detected with Raman spectroscopy.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Immunity to Influenza and Ebola viruses
  Prof A Townsend
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This started with the investigation of T cell recognition of peptides derived from intracellular proteins of Influenza (Townsend et al 1986), that evolved into the development of a live attenuated, single cycle Influenza vaccine, based on these principles (Powell et al, 2012; Baz et al, 2015, Holzer 2018).
