  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round
There is growing interest in the use of photosynthetic proteins in devices for solar energy conversion, biosensing, photosensing, photocatalysis, touch sensing, molecular electronics and biodegradable solar cells.
  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round
The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  Chromatin and maintenance of genome stability
  Dr A Chambers
Applications accepted all year round
Within eukaryotes, DNA is packaged into chromatin. The basic unit of chromatin is the nucleosome, formed by the wrapping of ~147 bp of DNA around an octamer of histones proteins.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round
Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round
Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
  Elucidating the mechanism of SMC complexes
  Prof M Dillingham
Applications accepted all year round
The segregation of bacterial chromosomes is orchestrated by the co-ordinated actions of ParB and condensin [1]. ParB (also called Spo0J) is a site-specific DNA binding protein that binds at and around parS sequences near the origin of replication to form “ParB networks” which define the bacterial centromere [2].
  Molecular basis of pathogenesis: Structure based design of novel therapeutics for the treatment of infectious diseases
  Prof R L Brady
Applications accepted all year round
Through the study of protein structure, primarily using protein crystallography but also electron microscopy and small-angle X-ray scattering, we aim to probe crucial biomolecular interactions central to a variety of diseases.
  Spatial control of autophagosome biogenesis
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that promotes cell survival during episodes of nutrient/growth factor stress. Autophagy is involved in many human diseases, so complete understanding of this process is needed.
  The endosomal network in health and disease
  Prof P J Cullen
Applications accepted all year round
Approximately 25% of the human genome encodes for integral membrane proteins (around 5,500 proteins). Efficient intracellular transport of these proteins, and associated proteins and lipids (together termed ‘cargos’), is essential for organelle biogenesis, maintenance, and quality control.
