  Cross presentation of antigens of recombinant overlapping peptides to optimise vaccines against tumour and infectious diseases
  Dr S Jiang, Dr N Burgess-Brown
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. We have developed a technology to producing overlapping peptides - bacterial expression of an amino acid sequence corresponding to overlapping peptide sequences spanning the length of a protein of interest interspersed with enzymatic cleavage sites.
  Oxidative protein folding of industrially and pharmaceutically important recombinant proteins
  Dr H Lu, Dr A Day
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxidative protein folding is an important process for the function of many proteins, which includes both folding and formation of native disulphide bonds.
  In silico design of high-affinity recombinant antibodies
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently there is a trend to move from small drug molecule therapy to use of biologics such as monoclonal antibodies (mAb).
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Rational engineering of NMDAR subunit-specific peptide affinity reagents and their pharmacological and functional characterisation as novel subtype specific NMDAR ligands.
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to engineer subunit-specific anti-GluN1/2/A/B polypeptide affinity reagents and to characterise their pharmacological specificity and functional activity on the recombinant NMDARs expressed in heterologous expression systems and on native NMDARs in hippocampal slice preparations.
  (BBSRC DTP) Engineering novel stress-resilient microalgae strains as improved platform strains for industrial biotechnology
  Dr J Pittman, Dr P Gallois, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microalgae have potential as photosynthetic cell factories for the production of chemicals and metabolites that can be used for industrial applications or as platform strains for the production of recombinant proteins.
  EASTBIO: Understanding the pathogenesis of life-threatening Burkholderia cenocepacia infections using blocking antibodies and novel chemistry scaffolds to untangle complex aspects of AMR
  Prof A Porter, Dr S Palliyil, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

  Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for the treatment of solid tumours
  Dr S Karagiannis, Prof J Downward
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An Antibody-Drug Conjugate (ADC) comprises an antibody targeted toward a tumour cell surface antigen, coupled through a chemical linker to a highly-cytotoxic drug.
  Defining ubiquitous chromatin opening element (UCOE®) molecular mechanisms of action to expedite their biotechnological applications
  Dr M Antoniou, Prof J Strouboulis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ubiquitous chromatin opening elements (UCOE®s) consist of one or more promoters with associated methylation-free CpG island from housekeeping genes (Neville et al.
  Targeting yeast epigenetics to combat anti-fungal resistance
  Dr E Hyland, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. One consequence of climate change is the increased incidence of fungal disease, as global temperatures become more aligned with optimal fungal growth conditions.
