Peptide Self-assembling for Biomedical Applications

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Self-Funded PhD Students Only
    Self-Funded PhD Students Only

Project Description

Designed short peptides can self-assemble into different nanostructures (such as nanovesicles and nanofibrils) through weak interactions and have a variety of applications. This PhD project will investigate the self-assembly of different carefully designed short peptides, understand the self-assembly mechanism and explore their potential applications in antimicrobial, anticancer, drug/gene delivery and as scaffolds for tissue engineering. The student will be trained to use AFM, TEM, dynamic light scattering, Langmuir trough, etc. and relevant cell assays to tackle this interesting project.

Funding Notes

Candidates should have or expect to gain a first class or upper second class honours degree in physics, chemistry, biotechnology, bioengineering, chemical engineering, biomaterials or a related discipline, or have an appropriate MSc qualification.

If English is not your first language then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) certificate with an average of 6.5 or above and at least 6.0 in each component.
