Self-assembling Functional Peptides for Biomedical Applications


Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering

Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

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

Enquiries are welcomed from self-funded students (fees: View Website). Candidates should have a 1st class or 2.1 degree or MSc (merit or distinction) in physics, chemistry, materials, pharmacy, chemical engineering, or a related discipline.

For scholarship competition, candidates need a good 1st class to be competitive (or a GPA > 3.7/4.0 from a good international university). Applications should be submitted online before the end of each year.

If English is not your first language, you must have an IELTS certificate with an average of 6.5 or above and at least 6.0 in each component.
