  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Chemical reaction to mechanical motion towards the physio-chemical model of heart cells.
  Dr Y Hayashi, Dr Z Wang, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Physicochemical characterisation and classification of blood samples following lifestyle changes using drop tensiometry and spectrometry
  Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr S Boateng
Applications accepted all year round
The purpose of the work is to investigate the effects of lifestyle changes to the physicochemical characteristics of blood samples.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round
"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  Computational modelling of intrinsically disordered proteins
  Dr D Nutt
Applications accepted all year round
"Not all proteins fold into well-defined structures. These intrinsically-disordered proteins (IDPs) perform a wide variety of roles and functions within living organisms, for which their disorder is key, from binding to biomineral surfaces for controlling growth and morphology, to protecting plants against drought.
  Electronic Structures of Substituted Osmanaphthalynes and Related Metallacycles in Donor-Bridge-Acceptor Systems
  Prof F Hartl
Applications accepted all year round
Chemistry of transition metal-containing aromatics has attracted considerable attention both experimentally and theoretically.
  Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
The proposed research area concerns the fabrication and study of the behaviour of mesoporous electrodes. The main focus of the project will be to undertake the control of surface macro-morphology and nanostructure and to investigate how these properties influence surface activity and electrode performance.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round
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.
