  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Oral delivery of insulin for diabetes therapy: Development and evaluation of insulin loaded polymer/lipid based carrier systems
  Dr A Vangala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that affects nearly 500 million people worldwide. Its hallmark feature, hyperglycaemia is caused due to insulin deficiency and/or resistance.
  3D printing of drug delivery implants
  Dr P Boyd, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing (3DP) encompasses a wide range of. processes that create structures through deposition or binding of materials in successive.
  Microfluidic Synthesis of Nanomedicines for the Delivery of Biologic Drugs
  Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in drug design has led to the development of new molecules. However, the limited ability to selectively deliver these molecules at well-defined dosing regimens remains a significant challenge.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
