"Prebiotics are dietary carbohydrates, and possibly polyphenols, that are resistant to upper gut hydrolysis and enter the human large intestine intact.
  Extracellular vesicles in health and disease
  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Integrative approach to valorise vegetable waste
  Dr M Oruna-Concha, Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Dr L Methven
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FAO estimates that around one third of all food produced worldwide is not consumed, which represents around 1.3 billion tons per year, and is wasted throughout the whole food chain, from farmers to consumers.
  Investigation of structure-activity relationship of ACE inhibitory peptides derived from food proteins
  Assoc Prof P Jauregi, Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Milk proteins are a rich source of bioactive peptides with a range of apparent biological activities, eg. antihypertensive, antioxidant and antimicrobial.
  Maximising the efficacy of polyphenols on cardiovacular health
  Dr C Mills

Cardiovascular diseases are the worlds’ leading cause of death. Dietary approaches to prevent or treat these diseases are becoming increasingly accepted.
  Modulation of fortified foods for older adults
  Dr L Methven, Dr S Lignou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein requirements increase with age as protein can help minimise sarcopenia and improve immunity. However protein fortified foods are often poorly accepted by older adults and can lead to numerous negative sensory attributes.
  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.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.

  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
