  Development of pulmonary dosage forms for improved antibacterial activity
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
  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.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  Bioactive Peptide Nanostructures: The relation between bioactivity and molecular self-assembly into diverse nanostructures
  Prof I W Hamley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into bioactive peptides includes work on antimicrobial peptides, amyloid-related peptides with relevance to protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimers, lipopeptides with applications in immune therapies and for wound healing and skincare.
  Nanostructured Materials For Energy and Devices
  Dr R Bennett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional Materials are increasingly being developed with nanostructures that alter their physical characteristics in comparison to bulk materials.
  Studying phase transitions by computer simulation techniques
  Dr L Bartok-Partay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer simulation on the atomistic level became a powerful tool in modern chemistry in the past decades. Computational techniques are widely used to augment experiments and make initial predictions, thus saving time and money by reducing the amount of experimental work.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  Computational modelling of intrinsically disordered proteins
  Dr D Nutt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Not all proteins fold into well-defined structures. These intrinsically-disordered proteins (IDPs) perform a wide variety of roles and functions within living organisms, for which their disorder is key, from binding to biomineral surfaces for controlling growth and morphology, to protecting plants against drought.
  Electronic Structures of Substituted Osmanaphthalynes and Related Metallacycles in Donor-Bridge-Acceptor Systems
  Prof F Hartl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemistry of transition metal-containing aromatics has attracted considerable attention both experimentally and theoretically.
  Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research area concerns the fabrication and study of the behaviour of mesoporous electrodes. The main focus of the project will be to undertake the control of surface macro-morphology and nanostructure and to investigate how these properties influence surface activity and electrode performance.
