  Visualising protein dynamics in protein aggregation
  Prof S E Radford, Dr D Brockwell
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Proteins perform a wide variety of functions essential for life. For many proteins, the ability to undergo conformational changes while maintaining their native folded structure is essential for their function.

  Inhibition of a protein-protein interaction mediating antibiotic resistance
  Dr J.H. Tomlinson, Prof A J Wilson
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
The dramatic rise in antibiotic resistance is threatening our ability to treat bacterial infections and precipitating a public health crisis.
  How cells respond to stress: The role of chaperone post-translational modifications in health and disease
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A Zhuravleva, Prof R.W. Bayliss
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
The Hsp70 chaperones are key cellular molecular machines that protect organisms from the toxic consequences of environmental and pathological stresses.
  Rational design and production of glyco-peptidic inhibitors of pathogens’ adhesion to host cells.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E Paci, Prof W B Turnbull
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019
The ability of protein molecules to stick to cells is crucial for life and disease. The project is based on a novel concept to design adhesive molecules based on multivalence and entropic stabilisation.
  Pattern Formation (Applied Nonlinear Dynamics): understanding the formation and stability of complex patterns such as quasipatterns, spatio-temporal chaos or turbulent spirals
  Prof A M Rucklidge
Applications accepted all year round
Regular patterns, such as stripes, squares and hexagons, are ubiquitous in nature, and their formation and stability are governed by the intricate and complex interactions of symmetry and nonlinearity.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round
The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round
Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
