  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.
  A randomised pilot study of a theory-based intervention to improve appropriate polypharmacy in older people in primary care (PolyPrime)
  Prof C Hughes, Dr H Barry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Historically, polypharmacy was viewed negatively (too many medicines), but the advent of multimorbidity and the plethora of treatment guidelines have led to prescribing of multiple medicines, particularly in the older population.
  Adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in people with bronchiectasis during chronic inhaled treatment
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals with bronchiectasis have respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa which may lead to a worse clinical trajectory.
  Antimicrobial prescribing in hospice and palliative care
  Dr C Parsons, Dr D Gilpin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Terminally ill patients are at high risk of infections and antimicrobial exposure near the end of life. However, the evidence-base to guide prescribers in the use of antibiotics for the treatment of infections in patients receiving hospice and palliative care is currently lacking.
  Clinical application of machine learning algorithms to determine appropriate antibiotic use in children with Gram-negative bacteria infections
  Dr Y Hsia, Prof C Hughes
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital health is a growing and productive field in recent years. The application of machine learning (ML) techniques in electronic healthcare databases has been successfully used for clinical diagnosis, outcome prediction, and disease progression.
  Computational prospecting of bacteriophage genomes and prophages for biotechnologically and pharmaceutically relevant enzymes
  Dr T Skvortsov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of bacteriophage genomes available in public databases keeps growing, but the problem of accurate prediction of functions of bacteriophage genes remains far from being solved.
  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.
  Determining the microbiome of the homes of people with chronic respiratory diseases
  Dr D Gilpin, Dr D Downey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of the microbial world in and around us has radically changed. The idea that we live with a complex and diverse community of microbes, has moved us away from a “hygiene hypothesis”, where having less bacteria was, to put it simply, better.
  Dissecting novel mechanisms of cysteine protease biology in tumourigenesis
  Dr R Burden, Prof C Scott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteases are known for their role in facilitating tumour development, primarily through processes such as proliferation and invasion.
  Enhancing Macrophage-Biofilm Interaction using Non-Thermal Plasma
  Prof B Gilmore, Dr P Flynn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to generate plasmas (quasi-neutral, wholly or partially ionised gases) at ambient or tissue tolerable temperatures has given rise to the nascent field of plasma medicine.
