  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  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).
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  Ubiquitin-dependent signalling pathways in ageing
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is characterized by a general functional decline of cells with increased risk of disease. Maintenance of protein homeostasis is a long-term challenge not only for individual cells but also for the entire organism.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Cardio-metabolic diseases in different ethnic groups
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  The molecular mechanisms underpinning individual variation in platelet function and their effect on the progression and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
  Dr CI Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Platelets respond to a range of agonists, which are released when blood vessels are damaged, by aggregating together to form thrombi.
  Impact of maternal obesity on offspring adipogenesis
  Dr D Sellayah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
