We have 28 Biological Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Nottingham

Development and application of recombinant antibodies to map pathology-related changes in glycosaminoglycans on breast cancer cells

The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) undertakes a wide range of research from improving knowledge of fundamental biological processes, disease control including developing diagnostics and therapeutics, through to animal health and welfare, and population studies. Read more

Identification and characterisation of bacteriocins from environmental samples active against strains of Clostridium difficile.

Clostridiodes difficile is a cause of neonatal enteritis in livestock such as pigs, cattle and horses. Affected animals develop respiratory problems, abdominal distention and bloody diarrhoea leading to weight loss and in extreme cases mortality. Read more

Exploring the potential for drug repurposing to enhance muscle mass and function in older adults.

Programme description. Loss of resilience describes enhanced vulnerability to, and impaired recovery from stress events when compared to a robust [youthful/healthy] state; and is commonly encountered with advancing age. Read more

The role of calcium signalling in regulating of tumour cell behaviour

Metastasis is the major cause of mortality in human cancers, yet we know relatively little of the fundamental biology that underlies the important transition to invasive malignancy. Read more

Cancer Neuroscience: Investigating the impact of non-CNS tumours on neuronal plasticity in the brain

To apply, please contact Dr Graham Sheridan at Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, resulting in approximately 18 million new cases and 10 million deaths each year. Read more

Optimising novel pre- and rehabilitation strategies to improve the physiological resilience of older surgical patients

PhD Description. In addition to rehabilitation, which has long been employed as method to enhance recovery from clinical stress events, there is burgeoning clinical and research interest in prehabilitation, an approach employed to prepare individuals for these events. Read more

Structural biology tools to investigate and target ubiquitin system proteases in cancer

Ubiquitination targets proteins for degradation and regulates virtually all cellular signalling pathways in eukaryotes. The human genome encodes over 50 ubiquitin specific proteases (USPs) that cleave ubiquitin from modified proteins to salvage them from proteasomal degradation. Read more

PhD Studentship: Lawn grass microbial fuel cells for widespread energy harvesting - ENG 1738

The University of Nottingham is offering a fully funded 42-month UK-based PhD studentship as part of the Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant, focusing on "Lawn grass microbial fuel cells for widespread energy harvesting." Supervised by Dr. Read more

Towards the development of an effective vaccine for advanced prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the second most frequent cancer in men. Patients with a localised disease are treated with local therapies such as prostatectomy or radiation therapy, whereas patients with metastatic disease are treated with androgen deprivation therapies (ADT). Read more

Structure and function of enzyme complexes involved in post-transcriptional gene regulation

Many proteins in human cells function as part of high molecular weight multi-subunit assemblies. The structure and function of such large molecular machines is often difficult to characterise due to their complexity, low abundance and structural dynamics. Read more

Role of BTG1 and BTG2 in acute lymphocytic leukaemia and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma

Acute lymphocytic leukaemia (ALL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is often associated with small deletions of or point mutations in the highly related BTG1 or BTG2 genes. Read more

Discovery and profiling of small-molecule inhibitors of cellular nuclease enzymes

Nuclease enzymes are non-traditional drug targets that attract an increasing amount of interest as potential targets relevant for a variety of therapeutic areas including infection, cancer and bone disease. Read more
