Showing 1 to 10 of 37
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Anti-inflammatory microbes and their potential as topical therapeutics
  Prof C A O'Neill, Prof A McBain
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The epidermis of skin is the primary interface between the body and the outside world. As such, the epidermis is constantly under threat of dehydration as there is a permanent driving force for water to leave the skin to the external dry environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing enhanced production and separation techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Dr J Winterburn, Dr Peter Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  (BBSRC DTP) Elucidating the responses to nascent protein misfolding and aggregation stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof S Hubbard, Prof M Ashe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this study is to characterize the proteins that aggregate during nascent protein misfolding and to investigate how cells mitigate the damaging effects of aggregate formation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  (BBSRC DTP) Listeria monocytogenes in transit in the small intestine-interactions with the host mucosal surface and the host microbiota.
  Prof I Roberts, Prof D Thornton, Dr P Paszek
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Listeria monocytogenes is an opportunistic food borne pathogen responsible for a number of life threatening infections with a highest morality rate of any food borne bacterial pathogen.
  (BBSRC DTP) Metal handling systems in metal-reducing bacteria: Application to engineering high activity biometallic catalysts for clickable chemistries
  Dr J Cavet, Prof J Lloyd, Prof N Turner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will contribute to a multidisciplinary research team focussed on the development of a new approach to making high value chemicals for a range of industries (including pharmaceuticals), in the vibrant and rapidly developing area of industrial biotechnology.
  (BBSRC DTP) Microbial population diversity as a driver of antibiotic resistance evolution
  Dr D Gifford, Dr C Knight, Dr T Gilman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Classically, microbial evolution has been thought to progress via rapid sweeps of beneficial mutations that quickly fix within populations—the so-called ‘strong selection, weak mutation’ model.
  (BBSRC DTP) Morphological control of cell fate, behaviour and function
  Dr S Herbert, Prof N Papalopulu, Dr M Baron
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Tissue formation critically depends on the appropriate assignment of specialised cell fates and behaviours. The traditional perspective of these competitive decisions is that cells first perceive extrinsic signalling cues, decide their fate and then act appropriately (i.e.
  Assembly of the DNA competence uptake pathway in Gram negative bacteria
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr F Hayes
Applications accepted all year round
Bacteria can take up DNA by three main mechanisms, transduction, conjugation and natural transformation, the latter being frequently termed ‘natural competence’.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
