Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  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.
  Combining omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid and melatonin to manage spinal cord injury-induced central neuropathic pain.
  Dr W Huang, Prof H Galley
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

About half of spinal injury patients develop neuropathic pain, which is driven by neuroinflammation, has no effective treatments, and impacts significantly on daily functioning.
  What is the role of opioids in postoperative pain?
  Prof P Forget, Prof G Macfarlane
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

  Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation
  Dr V Ralevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species.
  Hydrogen sulphide as a treatment for respiratory disease.
  Dr R Roberts, Dr SPH Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have demonstrated that hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is synthesised within the airways in the lungs. H2S synthesis in the airways occurs through activation of the enzymes cystathionine  lyase, cystathionine β synthase, and mercaptopyruvate sulphurtransferase (MPST).
