  Understanding the mechanism of action of ferro-nucleobase analogues
  Dr N J Hodges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Through collaboration with Professor Jim Tucker (School of Chemistry) we are studying the cellular effects of a novel DNA base analogues based on the organometallic compound ferrocene.
  Investigating Potential Applications of Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors
  Prof J Tucker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors.
  Nature Inspired Optical Nanostructures for Sensing
  Dr R Gupta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The wings of a morpho butterfly show vivid blue colour because of the presence of periodic nanostructures. We have been developing photochemistries and materials to fabricate similar nanostructures made of hydrogels.
  Novel approaches for imaging nucleic acids in the cell
  Dr R K Neely
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship with the Neely group, School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham. Work in the group focusses on imaging of the DNA molecule and this PhD will build on our work using the DNA methyltransferases to target specific DNA sequences for labelling and analysis.
  Responsive Polymer Nanostructures - the Synthesis of Novel Responsive Polymers and their subsequent self-assembly
  Prof R O'Reilly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available from October 2018 in the group led by Professor Rachel O’Reilly studying the synthesis of novel responsive polymers and their subsequent self-assembly.
  Chemical modulation of cellular redox balance for cancer treatment
  Dr I Romero-Canelon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platinum complexes, cisplatin, oxaliplatin and carboplatin, are the most widely used anticancer drugs. However, these DNA-targeting treatments are a low selectivity approach with deleterious consequences and a high incidence of resistance.
  Precious metals in the fight against cancer
  Dr I Romero-Canelon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platinum-based complexes, Cisplatin, Oxaliplatin and Carboplatin, are the most widely used chemotherapeutics, nonetheless there is a major unmet clinical need for new treatments that expand the range of treatable cancers and overcome inherent and acquired platinum resistance.
