  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Developing novel drugs targeting gut microbiota-accelerated heart diseases
  Dr Y Chen, Prof T Bugg, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is increasing evident that human is a “super-organism”. We co-exist with trillions of microorganisms in our body (collectively named as microbiota), and our health can largely depend on the interrelationship between ourselves and associated microbiome.
  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
  Construction of QSAR models for searching multi-target drug hits beyond similarity-based applicability domains
  Dr X Liu, Dr J Meng, Prof F Falciani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drugs designed to act against individual molecular targets cannot usually combat multigenic diseases such as cancers in which alternative or compensatory pathways are often activated.
  TARGETING MITOPHAGY TO REDUCE CHEMOTHERAPY-INDUCED PAIN
  Dr M Maiaru
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is the most commonly reported side effect of chemotherapeutic drugs, affecting quality of life in many cancer patients.
  Development of antiviral peptidomimetic enzyme inhibitors
  Dr L Trembleau, Dr H Deng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that circulate and evolve among various animals. They can cause mild human illnesses such as the common cold or more serious respiratory diseases as seen in the recent outbreaks of SARS (2002), MERS (2012), and COVID-19 (2019).
  The role of the microenvironment in regulating breast cancer metastatic colonisation
  Dr R Clarke, Dr Ciara O'Brien, Dr R Eyre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The metastatic spread of breast cancer cells and their colonisation of important organs is the cause of death in 95% of breast cancer.
  MSc by Research Programme: Development of novel therapeutics against parasitic disease
  Prof M Field
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Biomass conversion into platform chemicals for a future biorefinery
  Dr V Degirmenci, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass can be either purposefully grown through energy crops (e.g. miscanthus, switchgrass) or produced in large amounts as unwanted organic matter once edible components are collected.
  Bioinspired filomicelles for the effective delivery of antibiotics
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Antibiotics are drugs that are used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria modify their response to antibiotics, making them less effective or even redundant.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebite envenomation (SBE), a high priority neglected tropical disease affects several million people worldwide resulting in as many as 150,000 deaths and around 500,000 permanent disabilities every year.
  Toward developing next-generation therapeutics - targeting the undruggable interactome
  Dr W Houssen, Prof M Jaspars, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic and modified cyclic peptides are very appealing scaffolds especially as therapeutics with several examples reach the clinic e.g.
