  Mathematical modelling of wounding response in plants (BLYTHMU20SF)
  Dr M Blyth
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a plant is wounded, for example by cutting, a signal is sent out from the wound site to other parts of the plant. However, the mechanism by which this signal is transported is not well understood.
  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and the food industry are urgently seeking to develop healthier processed foods. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not digested to glucose in the upper-gut.
  Psyllium fibre: from molecular structure to human health (WARRENQ20DTP)
  Dr F Warren
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Psyllium fibre is an emerging and important source of dietary fibre, used in the treatment of many digestive disorders and extensively in the processing of foods, especially gluten free products.
  SOLAR-protect: Can tomato extracts protect skin from aging? (GAVRILOVICU20CASE)
  Dr J Gavrilovic, Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The prospects are very bright for the use of plant extracts to protect against skin diseases such as UV light-mediated skin aging.
  Unlocking pulse protein: A new look at mechanisms that limit bioaccessibility (EDWARDSQ20DTP)
  Dr C Edwards
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inadequate protein nutrition is a major health concern to children and the institutionalised elderly. Although animal proteins are the best source of protein nutrition, 76% of the global population currently rely on plant protein.
  3D computer modelling of growing plants (SMITHJ20DTP)
  Dr R Smith
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Smith lab is looking for a motivated computer scientist that would like to apply their skills to. fundamental questions in plant development.
  Find your match: investigating the biophysics and the evolution of protein-DNA interaction specificity (LEJ20DTP)
  Dr T Le
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In living organisms, hundreds of DNA-binding proteins carry out a plethora of roles in homeostasis, transcriptional regulation in response to stress, and in maintenance and transmission of genetic information.
  A helping hand: signal transduction in plant immunity (BANFIELDJ20DTP)
  Prof M Banfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant diseases are a continuous threat to food production and a major constraint on achieving global food security. One approach to restricting plant diseases is to understand how plant immune receptors recognise the presence of pathogens and transduce signals that lead to disease resistance.
  How Proteins Bind Unusual DNA Structures (WALLERU20DTP2)
  Dr Z Waller, Dr A Gates
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Think you know the structure of DNA? Think again. It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick “twisted ladder” double helix; but it can actually adopt many different types of structures.
  What Other Shapes Can DNA Form in Cells? (WALLERU20DTP1)
  Dr Z Waller, Dr Y Ding
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Think you know the structure of DNA? Think again. It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick “twisted ladder” double helix; but it can actually adopt many different types of structures.
