  The antibacterial activity of egg white
  Prof S C Andrews
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Drs Florence Baron, Sophie Baron, Françoise Nau; Prof Simon Andrews. Despite the impressive anti-bacterial properties exhibited by egg white, a major health issue related to eggs is their contamination with food-borne pathogens, in particular Salmonella Enteritidis.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebite envenomation (SBE), a high priority neglected tropical disease affects several million people worldwide resulting in as many as 150,000 deaths and around 500,000 permanent disabilities every year.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
  Big Data Mining for Fighting Dementia
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia describes a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a terminal neurodegenerative disease.
  Animats - neural culture controlled robots for closed-loop neuroscience
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will continue research started at the University of Reading on animats - robotic platforms controlled in real time by activity of biological neuron cultures and will investigate the methods for implementing efficient conditioning protocols.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors
  Dr L Lander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well.
  Biomechanics and activity analysis in the wild
  Prof W Harwin, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Movement analysis and recording has been confined to dedicate gait and motion capture facilities, but this only only records movements for a single part of one day in an unusual environment.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Prof P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Designing Technology for Personalised Nutrition
  Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD investigates the design of technology to provide personalised nutrition advice. Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are major challenges globally, and can be addressed, in part, by eating a healthier diet.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
  Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use
  Prof J A Hawkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project encompasses 1. evolutionary aspects of medicinal plant use and 2. authentication. You will collect DNA sequence data at the level of a whole flora and at the level of a genus.
