About the Project
Using molecular dynamics simulations the formation of complexes between tripeptides and pristine graphene will be investigated then the mechanisms of interaction of the drug and the complex will be investigated. Using classical methods of characterisation of graphene materials (Raman spectroscopy, FTIR, AFM, DLS, zeta potential), the formation, drug loading and stability of these drug delivery systems will be investigated.
Candidates are expected to hold a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, pharmaceutical science or related subject. Candidates with experience in some of the aforementioned techniques or with an interest in nanoparticles are encouraged to apply.
For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/study/research/apply/). Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor. On the online application form select PhD Pharmacy / Pharmaceutics.
For international students we also offer a unique 4 year PhD programme that gives you the opportunity to undertake an accredited Teaching Certificate whilst carrying out an independent research project across a range of biological, medical and health sciences.
