Project at University of Surrey: Dietary protein, the microbiota and gut barrier function: a gatekeeper of metabolic & immune health

The gut barrier functions to prevent the passage of bacteria and bacterial products into the systemic blood circulation. If the gut barrier fails, bacterial products can infiltrate bodily tissues, causing metabolic and immune dysfunction. Read more

Why cell position matters in cancer: role of epigenetic factors

Although cancers are highly mutated, it is factors above and beyond those mutations that allow a tumor to form. These factors include epigenetic gene programs embedded within the cell of origin (Baggiolini, et al, Science 2021). Read more

Chrono-Vac: Harnessing the chronobiology of skin dendritic cells to boost vaccine efficacy

Project Description. How an individual responds to a vaccine can depend on what time of day that individual was vaccinated. This is evident across a number of vaccines for infectious disease including the COVID-19 vaccines. Read more

Geological Fate and Impact of Isosaccharinic acid (Geo-FISA)

About the Project.  The nuclear fuel cycle has generated higher-level radioactive wastes that will be disposed of in a deep geological facility (GDF) that will provide multiple barriers to the migration of radionuclides to the surface over prolonged timescales (tens of thousands of years).

Exploring the Molecular Mechanism of Novel Mitochondrial Neurotoxins identified through a Machine Learning Approach

Mitochondrial inhibition is an important ‘OFF-target’ mechanism of drug-induced toxicity in the clinic, contributing to drug attrition in clinical trials and drug withdrawal following approval because of severe adverse events 1. Read more

PhD: Co-fermentation in the whisky industry for sustainability and flavour creation

The International Centre for Brewing and Distilling (ICBD) at Heriot-Watt University in association with the Scotch Whisky Research Institute (SWRI) are offering an IBioIC-Industry co-funded PhD project, expected to commence by 30th September 2022. Read more

Biodegradable fibres for antimicrobial face masks

Applicants are invited to apply for a fully funded PhD programme to investigate the creation of biodegradable fibres from bacteria-generated bioplastics, i.e. polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), with appealing mechanical competence and functionalities. Read more

Mathematical modelling of herpes simplex virus transmission in 2- and 3- dimensions

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake an EPSRC-funded PhD that will combine experimental work with mathematical modelling to describe the transmission of the human pathogen herpes simplex virus (HSV) in human cells and tissue models, and develop a comprehensive tool for assessing the parameters that influence virus transmission.
