  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.
  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.
  Deep learning analysis of large-scale sequence data in health and disease
  Dr B Devereux, Dr M Tunney
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case in many other information processing domains, deep learning frameworks are emerging as powerful and highly effective tool in Bioinformatics and health analytics, including in the analysis of genetics, proteomics and clinical text data.
  Determining the microbiome of the homes of people with chronic respiratory diseases
  Dr D Gilpin, Dr D Downey
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

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.
  Long-acting drug delivery from intravaginal rings for treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia
  Prof K Malcolm, Dr P Boyd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on our world-renowned expertise in vaginal drug delivery, the aim of this project is to develop a long-acting vaginal ring device for treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.
  Microfabricated Engineered Systems for Sustained Ocular Drug Delivery
  Dr R Thakur, Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinal diseases that originate at the back of the eye, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), represent the leading causes of vision loss in the Western world.
  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.
  Nanoparticle delivery of antibiotics for treatment of pulmonary infection
  Dr V Kett, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In respiratory diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and COPD, the lungs are colonized by diverse polymicrobial bacterial communities.
  Novel drug delivery systems for Schizophrenia treatment
  Dr E Larraneta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to develop, characterise and test a new type of implantable device to provide sustained antipsychotic drug delivery for schizophrenia treatment.
  Optimising pharmacological treatment of non-cognitive symptoms in people with dementia
  Dr H Barry, Prof C Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-cognitive symptoms experienced by people with dementia may include agitation, aggression, distress, psychosis, anxiety and depression.
