  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Development of novel peptide hydrogel therapies for endometriosis and endometrial cancer
  Prof K Marshall, Prof A Miller, Dr D Fischer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Endometrial cancer and endometriosis are common gynaecological disorders, which arise from the uterine lining. Cancer develops by glandular cell differentiation, whilst implantation and growth of endometrial-like tissue in endometriosis induces a chronic inflammatory reaction causing pain and infertility.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of a toolkit of bi-substrate modulators of signalling pathways
  Dr L Tabernero, Prof D Procter, Dr S Butterworth
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Protein phosphatases control key events in cell physiology and adaptation to the environment, and are critically involved in fundamental biological processes such as development, cell division and homeostasis.
  Controlling Reservoir Formation at the Air/Water Interface by Nanoparticle Design: a bridge from Biocompatible Model Systems to Lung Surfactant Function
  Prof J Lawrence, Dr R Campbell
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project is at the interface between physical chemistry and physical pharmacy and combines the use of several interfacial tools including neutron reflectometry and laser reflection techniques to understand and control the use of nanoparticles in tuning reservoir formation in films at the air/water interface.
  Identification of novel anticonvulsant compounds
  Prof R Baines, Dr S Freeman, Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round
Epilepsy and other associated seizures are a significant health concern, occurring in an estimated 1-2% of the world’s population.
  Structure based design of novel warheads for use in peptide-drug conjugates
  Dr S Butterworth, Dr A Tirella, Dr D Wiseman
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CMML) is an orphan disease defined by myeloid dysplasia, myeloproliferation and a malignant expansion of classical monocytes.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Exploitation of P450 BM3 variants for production of valuable biomolecules
  Prof A Munro, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recommended that many human drug metabolites (as well as their parent drugs) should be subject to testing for safety/toxicity.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Novel approaches for the identification of allosteric inhibitors of high value therapeutic targets
  Prof J Waltho, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Protein kinases, protein phosphatases and small G-proteins are extremely high-value targets for therapeutic intervention in numerous diseases, including many cancers, and the drive for new drugs in this area is as strong as ever.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This is an interdisciplinary research project in Industrial Biotechnology, especially in the emerging area of Synthetic Biology applied to antimicrobial resistance.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding and Harnessing Enzymes for Organosilicon Chemistry
  Dr L Wong, Dr S De Visser, Dr P Quayle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As a project that traverses the boundaries of the physical and life sciences, the student will learn skills in a. wide range of areas.
  Characterising surface properties of protein biopharmaceutical molecules
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr J Warwicker
Applications accepted all year round
Protein biologicals have great potential for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases. However, aggregation and instability are inherent issues with all protein pharmaceuticals, which is a problem that can limit their utility and developability.
