  Molecular characterisation of novel virulence genes and vaccine candidates in pathogenic Corynebacterium diphtheria (Ref: SF20/APP/SANGAL)
  Dr V Sangal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Corynebacterium diphtheriae is a prominent human pathogen that causes diphtheria, a toxin mediated disease of upper respiratory tract, resulting in significant mortality and morbidity in humans.
  Fabrication of tuneable biomaterial composites (Ref: SF20/APP/ZHANG)
  Dr M Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a polysaccharide hydrogel with many fascinating material properties (e.g. High tensile strength, high water holding capacity, biocompatibility, etc.).
  Microfibre release from textiles leading to environmental pollution (Ref: SF20/APP/SHERIDAN)
  Dr KJ Sheridan
