  Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death
  Dr C Bubici, Dr S Papa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As you read this, millions of your cells from your body are dying. Do not panic – this is not bad news. Most of them are either superfluous or potentially harmful, so you are better off without them.
  Application of Data-Driven Technologies to Aid Pneumonia Diagnosis in Resource-Constrained Settings
  Dr A Shah, Prof S Cunningham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death among children younger than 5 year worldwide. The majority of these deaths occur in resource-constrained settings.
  Quantitative Risk Assessment for Food Safety (allergens, microbial pathogens or chemical contaminants)
  Prof N Strachan, Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use computational methods to assess risks. An expectation of the society we live in is that the food that we eat is safe.
