  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.
  Dr M Khoder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a grave threat to public health causing 50000 deaths per year in the US and Europe alone. With virtually no new antibiotic classes created in the new millennia, identifying novel strategies to preserve and extend the useful life of existing antibiotics has therefore become a priority.
  Development of metabolomics for understanding AMR in mixed infections
  Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Bacterial stress sensing and antibiotic action
  Dr U Zachariae, Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  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.
  Bioactive Peptide Nanostructures: The relation between bioactivity and molecular self-assembly into diverse nanostructures
  Prof I W Hamley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into bioactive peptides includes work on antimicrobial peptides, amyloid-related peptides with relevance to protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimers, lipopeptides with applications in immune therapies and for wound healing and skincare.
  Development of pulmonary dosage forms for improved antibacterial activity
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
