Showing 1 to 10 of 10
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round
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
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
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.
  Developing novel drug delivery approaches to treat ocular disorders
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Ocular diseases affect the quality of life of millions of people worldwide. The leading causes of chronic blindness include cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, corneal opacities, diabetic retinopathy, and trachoma.
  Fabrication of novel hybrid nano-carriers for pulmonary drug delivery
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round
Pulmonary drug delivery is a non-invasive route for drug delivery where the lungs provide a thin, yet extremely efficient absorptive mucosal membrane with a good blood supply.
  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
Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
  Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular diseases
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round
Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.
  Microencapsulated probiotics for oral delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Probiotics are live bacteria that reside in human intestinal tract and provide numerous beneficial effects. Oral delivery of probiotics is viewed as an efficient therapeutic strategy to improve gut health.
  Novel formulations for oral care - developing a fundamental understanding of the formulation factors and strategies to enhance the retention of oral care ingredients in the mouth.
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Oral care has been widely recognised as a vital contributor to overall health. Modern oral care products including toothpastes, chewing gums and mouthwashes often provide a significant reduction in dental decay; they control plaque and prevent gum disease; they remove staining and restore the original teeth shade.
  Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery: developing novel formulations to increase drug delivery into and through skin
  Prof A Williams
Applications accepted all year round
Human skin is a remarkable self-repairing barrier that controls the ingress of environmental contaminants and regulates water loss from the body.
