  Biotechnological production microbial lipids rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
  Dr A Chatzifragkou, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Linolenic acid (GLA, ω-6 family) is a medicinally and nutritionally important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with a broad spectrum of applications, extending from food supplements to anti-cancer formulations.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Gene and Cell Therapy For Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Atrophy, Diabetes and Metabolic conditions
  Dr K Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle development is a complex process and a number of regulatory factors for the different steps involved in stem cell activation and proliferation through to multinucleated, post-mitotic cells have been identified.
  Next generation wearable healthcare sensors
  Prof S Sherratt, Prof W Harwin, Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus.
  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.
