"The distributions of microorganisms in our rivers and their interactions play an important role to environment and human health.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  The non-human biological trace evidence of shallow graves
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"A number of non-human biological traces are present in or around corpses shallowly buried in soil. This project attempts to characterize the different types of traces, and inform on the role they can play in the forensic analysis of a crime scene.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
