  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
  Novel chemistry to protect the wheat crop
  Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens pose major challenges to crop production and food security. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Rewiring of host cell protein complexes by pathogen effectors - mass spectrometry-based methods and applications in infection biology
  Dr B Collins, Prof J Bengoechea, Dr G Schroeder
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Bacterial pathogens, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila, residing inside host immune cells such as macrophages, must subvert host cell defences in order to avoid destruction.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Design and Optimisation of Red/NIR Fluorescent Dyes for the Assessment of Antimicrobial Susceptibility
  Prof D Kell, Dr G Nixon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis is well documented and the need for a very rapid antibiotic susceptibility test is key to preventing mis-diagnosis and subsequent mis-prescribing.
