  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  MSc by Research Programme: Bringing proteins together with small molecules
  Prof A Ciulli
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Computer Simulations of G protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr I Tikhonova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many physiological processes are controlled through the activation of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) by regulatory peptides, making peptide GPCRs particularly useful targets for major human diseases such as diabetes and CNS diseases.
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in the patterns of carbohydrates produced by the cell can provide insights into disease states, revealing perturbations and differences in cellular metabolic processes.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Design and synthesis of novel, targeted, anti-cancer agents
  Prof H Osborn, Dr F Greco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is that the drugs used have poor selectivities for cancer cells and cause damage to normal cells and organs.
  Development of unique calcium channel pharmacological modulators
  Prof G Monteith, Dr B Ross
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to develop isoform-specific modulators of a family of calcium permeable ion channels, which are prospective drug targets for various diseases.
  Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs.
  Development of pulmonary dosage forms for improved antibacterial activity
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
  Health behaviours in sport
  Dr A Hollywood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use qualitative and quantitative research methods to explore health behaviours in people who participate in sport.
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery: developing novel formulations to increase drug delivery into and through skin
  Prof A Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin is a remarkable self-repairing barrier that controls the ingress of environmental contaminants and regulates water loss from the body.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Bacterial stress sensing and antibiotic action
  Dr U Zachariae, Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards, Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 23 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and healthier processed foods are urgently needed. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not readily digested to glucose in the upper-gut, and therefore enters the colon.
