  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Nanoinjection: a novel single molecule technique to study alpha-synuclein amyloid toxicity inside neurons
  Dr E W Hewitt, Dr P Actis, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Aims. The aim of this project is to use nanoinjection to perform the quantitative delivery of alpha-synuclein fibrils or oligomers into the cytoplasm of neurons and then determine how many of each is required to induce cellular stress and death.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Methionine adenosyltransferases in disease and regulation of gene expression
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmethylation, the transfer of a methyl group from one molecule to another, is a fundamental chemical reaction that plays a central role in important biological processes such as gene expression, cell growth and apoptosis.
  How passive diffusivity in cells can be a function of protein diffusant’s physiochemical properties
  Dr R Bearon, Prof Y-C Lin
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise regulation of protein distribution and dynamics is vital for cellular functions and organization. Defects in protein transport have been implicated in degenerative and neoplastic diseases.
  Designing novel composite polysaccharide nanoparticles for combined diagnosis and treatment of cancers
  Dr E Barbu, Dr A Lalatsa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer continues to impose a vast burden with regard to financial costs as well as human suffering but the progress in its treatment is hindered by the limited selectivity and significant side-effects that the current chemotherapy demonstrates, representing a major challenge for modern drug delivery.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.
  Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery: developing novel formulations to increase drug delivery into and through skin
  Prof A Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin is a remarkable self-repairing barrier that controls the ingress of environmental contaminants and regulates water loss from the body.
  Uncovering the role of ASPM in mitosis
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof M Peckham, Dr J Bond
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ASPM (abnormal spindle-like, microcephaly-associated protein) is essential in determining the plane of division in mitosis. This is important in regulating neuronal development, and enabling humans to have a large brain.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Making Broken Bones Antimicrobial - Preventing Osteomyelitis Using a Targeted and Mineralising Liposomal Delivery System
  Dr WN Nishio Ayre, Prof J Birchall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September/October 2019.
