EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership: Complex Biological Products Manufacture

Biological products and their manufacture are progressing to unparalleled levels of complexity. Examples include engineered biocatalysts, antibody-drug conjugates, multivalent vaccines and cellular therapies. Read more

Control of protein self assembly by biological ions

In addition to being an energy source in biological reactions, recent discoveries suggest adenosine triphosphate (ATP) also plays a critical role in maintaining cell stability and preventing deleterious cellular processes through modulating biomacromolecular self assembly. Read more

Core-Shell Silk Nanoparticles for Targeted Drug Delivery

Silk is a protein fibre produced by silkworm. Extensive research has been carried out to explore the regenerated silk fibroin (RSF) as biomaterials such as tissue culture scaffolds, wound covering materials, and cosmetic components for their impressive biocompatibility and biodegradability. Read more

Developing a Mechanistic Understanding of Roller Compaction Process

Granulation is a process of size enlargement of the powder particles. It is used in different sectors such as pharmaceutical and food industries to improve the properties of the powder and hence the final product. Read more

More Understanding of the Spray Drying Process

Spray drying is a process where the slurry converted into powder form. It is widely used in different industries. For example, in the food industry it is used to produce milk powder, coffee and starch. Read more

Microfluidic Fabrication of Nanoparticles/Liposomes for Drug Delivery

Microfluidic devices offer precise control of mixing multiple fluids in microscale, enabling fabrication of advanced nanoparticles/liposomes with tuneable sizes and compositions in a high throughput and repeatable manner. Read more

PhD in Chemistry: Chemical synthesis and biological evaluation of conotoxin peptides

Peptides derived from natural sources are useful lead compounds to develop therapeutics. The structural diversity of naturally occurring peptides covers a large section of chemical space that sits between more traditional small molecules (. Read more

Wireless bioelectrochemistry towards sensing and treating cancer

We are currently seeking applications for a 3 year Ph.D. to join a collaborative international multidisciplinary team to work on a research project aligned with our funded EPSRC’s Healthcare Technology Challenge Award aimed at developing bioelectronic technology to transform healthcare. This is a cross-school Ph.D. Read more

A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry. Read more

Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes. Read more

Soft Robotics for Advanced Drug Delivery Powered by Machine Learning

The aim of this project is to harness the power of various artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to build advanced drug delivery systems for improved controlled and personalised medicines. Read more

Chemical tools for antimicrobial target discovery and bacterial profiling

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most urgent scientific, medical, and societal challenges of today. AMR is predicted to result globally in >10 million deaths per year and >100 trillion USD in lost economic output by 2050, if no immediate action is taken (. Read more
