  Tetrazines as Traceless Carriers for Polar Drugs
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr R Wheelhouse, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
A recent invention in Bradford has identified a new carrier molecule that reduces the polarity of polar drugs.
  Studies on impact of co-former selection on physicochemical properties of crystalline active pharmaceutical complexes
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr K Paluch
Applications accepted all year round
Studies on the enhanced bioavailability profile of existing antibiotics are essential, considering growing bacterial resistance and increasing demand on cost-effective and safe antibacterial treatments.
  Quantitative structure/skin-permeation relationships (QSPeRs); an investigation of the relevance of parameters determined with biomembrane-mimicking systems for the predictability of drug partitioning into skin
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr X Liu, Prof D J Tobin
Applications accepted all year round
The transdermal route has many advantages over other routes for the delivery of drugs with systemic activity. These include the ease of use (and withdrawal in the occurrence of side-effects), avoidance of first-pass metabolism, and improved patient compliance.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of MMP-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Ion channel gating kinetics and structure implication for drug delivery
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr Z Hughes
Applications accepted all year round
Ion channels are proteins which sit in the membrane of every cell in the body and control the flow of positively charged ions such as sodium and potassium into and out of the cell.
  Directed Co-Crystallisation of Pharmaceuticals: developing a predictive method for co-crystallisation
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round
In this project, we propose to use a combination of computational and experimental techniques to develop a predictive method for co-crystallisation.
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round
The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
  Development of a regime map for the process of seeded granulation
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian
Applications accepted all year round
Granulation of powders is a key unit operation in many chemical industries. In particular, the detergent and pharmaceutical processing industries, where uniform granular products are essential for optimum operation of the active ingredients contained within the particles.
  Continuous monitoring of pharmaceutical hot melt extrusion using ultrasonic and infrared techniques
  Research Group: Advanced Materials Engineering
  Dr E Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Extrusion is a processing technology developed and widely used in polymer and food industries, and now under exploration within the pharmaceutical industry as an alternative to traditional batch processing.
