  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Biosynthetic Lego: Building antibiotic assembly lines from first principles
  Dr P Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature has evolved many elegant strategies for the construction of complex bioactive natural products. The most sophisticated of these involves the action of giant assembly line like megaenzymes, which fuse and tailor simple carboxylic acid building blocks into a vast array of elaborate carbon scaffolds.
  Circadian control of secretory pathway function
  Prof D J Stephens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the fundamental unit of life. Our aim is to understand cell function in the context of membrane and cytoskeleton dynamics.
  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Modular design of custom protein structures
  Dr F Parmeggiani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins perform most of the functions in biological systems, from structural support, to movement, communication and catalysis. Our goal is to use modular building blocks to quickly and precisely design novel protein nanomaterials and nanoparticles to control cell behaviour.
  Molecular basis of cellular organisation
  Dr M Dodding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab aims to understand the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways that control the distribution and dynamics of subcellular components, focusing on structure, function, molecular mechanism and regulation of the key biomolecular machines regulate cellular organization including cytoskeletal motor proteins.
  The bacterial protein translocation machinery: a target for new strategies against antimicrobial resistance
  Prof I Collinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a major problem affecting millions of people across the world. This severely affects treatment of bacterial infections as strains are emerging that are totally resistant to all clinically used antibiotics.
  The generation of RBCs in vitro from stem cell sources and the molecular regulation of erythropoiesis in health and disease
  Dr J Frayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Development of systems for the generation of red blood cells (RBCs) from stem cell sources (adult peripheral blood, cord blood and pluripotent stem cells)…
