  FoodBioSystems DTP - Repositioning histone modifying enzyme (HME) inhibitors as next-generation flukicides
  Prof K Hoffman, Prof A Maule, Dr I Chalmers, Dr J Tomczak
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) infection costs the UK livestock industry >£300m/year. The global impact of liver fluke infection across the livestock sector is estimated at over US$3.2b/year.

  Dr E Kevei, Dr L Connolly, Dr N Vasudevan, Dr G Arnott
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research on the biomedical impact of microplastic pollution in the environment and in the Agrifood sector to determine its effect on human health.
  Adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in people with bronchiectasis during chronic inhaled treatment
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals with bronchiectasis have respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa which may lead to a worse clinical trajectory.
  Computational prospecting of bacteriophage genomes and prophages for biotechnologically and pharmaceutically relevant enzymes
  Dr T Skvortsov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of bacteriophage genomes available in public databases keeps growing, but the problem of accurate prediction of functions of bacteriophage genes remains far from being solved.
  Dissecting novel mechanisms of cysteine protease biology in tumourigenesis
  Dr R Burden, Prof C Scott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteases are known for their role in facilitating tumour development, primarily through processes such as proliferation and invasion.

  Dr J Dalzell, Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Plants manipulate the rhizosphere (soil surrounding the plant root) through the release of water-soluble and volatile organic compounds known collectively as root exudate.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Investigation of the capacity of a diet rich in lutein and zeaxanthin to increase macular pigment density, thereby potentially reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration by dietary means.
  Prof M Rayman, Prof J Woodside, Dr J Brown
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Research question. Can consuming a healthy plant food, rich in protective macular pigments, be a lifestyle strategy that has the potential to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)?.
