We have 44 antibiotic PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

How do interactions in the microbiome shape the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens?

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria poses a fundamental threat to human health. It is estimated that antibiotic resistant infections are already directly responsible for at least one million deaths per annum and this number is predicted to rise dramatically by 2050. Read more

Microbiology of Hip Arthroplasty Cements

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Replacement hip and knee arthroplasties are common surgeries, with 31,000 hip and 90,000 knee replacements performed in England in 2020-21. Read more

Clinical Gastroenterology: Investigation of Fidaxomicin Resistance Mechanisms in Clostridium difficile

Clostridium difficile is a leading pathogen in healthcare-associated diarrheal infections. C. difficile has a plastic genome with multiple mobile genetic elements and recognized capacity to acquire genes involved in resistance and virulence. Read more

Exploration and development of clinical metagenomics for rapid infection diagnostics, pathogen identification and resistome profiling in advanced chronic liver disease patients

This project will identify the pathogens responsible for infections in cirrhosis patients and characterise the mechanisms underlying their resistance to antimicrobial agents, to improve diagnostics and ultimately the management of infections in these patients. Read more

Addressing antimicrobial resistance by combining bioengineering and bacteriophage approaches

Antimicrobial resistance is predicted to become a primary cause of death by 2050, and novel approaches are urgently required. This project uses a bioengineering approach to investigate bacteriophages as novel antimicrobial agents, harnessing a recently developed rapid Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test (iFAST) to accelerate implementation. Read more

Minimising pathogen colonisation of the gut using diet and specific gut bacteria

Applications are invited for this self-funded 36 Month project within the Rowett Institute at the University of Aberdeen. The human gut contains trillions of microbes, known as the gut microbiota, that are beneficial for our health and provide a barrier to prevent infections by pathogenic bacteria. Read more

Optimisation of skin-facing antimicrobial surgical devices produced through Additive Manufacturing

Project description. This highly interdisciplinary project combines 3D Printing and silver-based antimicrobial technology in order to reduce the chances of infection following a patient undergoing a Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). Read more

Clinical Gastroenterology: The regulation of GDH expression in Clostridioides difficile

Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI), the most common cause of infective antibiotic-associated diarrhea in the western world, is diagnosed by a combination of tests that firstly detect the organism, then the toxins that it produces (Planche 2013). Read more
