We have 73 Microbiology (self) PhD Research Projects

Self-Assembling Peptides for Biomedical Applications

Designed short peptides can self-assemble into different nanostructures (such as nanoparticles, nanofibrils and hydrogels) through weak interactions and have a variety of applications. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Nutrient-Mediated Bacterial Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Microbial resistance to antibiotics has been a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Cytokine-dependent immune cell modulation through trained immunity

Your innate immune system is the first line of defence against infections, cancer and various physiological danger signals. Innate immune dysregulation is a central driver of various pathologies ranging from neurological diseases to immunological and metabolic disorders and cancers. Read more

Self-funded project: Metabolomics informatics

Applications accepted for MSc by Research only. We are collecting untargeted metabolomics data on microbiomes associated with the process of anaerobic digestion (the conversion of waste biomass to biogas). Read more

Self-funded project: New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants

Application accepted for either MSc by Research or PhD. We are interested in using biological methods to detect both biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples. Read more

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Micro-manufacturing of surface textures for enhanced electrosurgery

3 years full time 1st April 2021, 1st July 2021 or 1st October 2021. Electrosurgery is a medical procedure that uses an alternating and high frequency current (200 kHz-3.3 MHz) to either cut and/or coagulate tissues and achieve haemostasis. Read more

Mathematical Modelling of Biofilm Formation on Urinary Catheters

This project aims to achieve a better understanding of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) using a multidisciplinary approach centred on mathematical modelling. Read more
