  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Probing the organization and function of bacterial toxin-antitoxin complexes
  Dr F Hayes, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial toxin-antitoxin (TA) modules typically consist of a pair of genes that encode for a stable toxin protein and an unstable cognate antitoxin molecule.
