We have 45 antibiotic PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Novel strategy for treatment of chronic wounds via multi-functional liposomal nanocarriers

  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
A confounding issue of non-healing skin wounds is the presence of pathogenic bacteria, that protect themselves from conventional antibiotic treatments by encasing themselves within protective shields (biofilms). Read more

Modification of antibiotics to improve efficacy / safety

With increasing concern over antibiotic resistance, antibacterial agents such as chloramphenicol and colistin, which have frequently been passed over in the past because of concerns over toxicity, are now becoming more important to tackle resistant bacterial strains. . Read more

Development and Testing of a Novel Protease Screening Platform for Hit Compound Generation

  Research Group: The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research
Uncontrolled proteolytic activity has been reported in many human diseases, such as cancer, lung inflammatory diseases like COPD, Cystic Fibrosis and ARDS… Read more

Advanced Algorithm Design for Inferring Evolution

Phylogenetic “family trees” are a primary tool used for studying evolution such as the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria or transmission of COVID-19. Read more

Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

UTS PhD Scholarship- Sydney Water- CRCSAAFE ( DOMESTIC ONLY)

The last 80 years has witnessed the rapid emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens driven by the widespread reliance on antibiotics to control infectious disease in clinical and veterinary medicine. Read more

Roles of the genetic ‘dark matter’ in environmental and antimicrobial resistance of bacteria

What gives a bacterium such flexibility to live just about anywhere, and adjust its behavior depending on what is happening in its environment? In this Project, the PhD student will explore the flexibility of these resilient bacteria that is encoded in their so-called 'accessory' genome. Read more

Artificial cyclic peptide library for novel antimicrobial resistance therapeutics and targeted delivery

Supervisory Team: Dr Afaf El-Sagheer and Dr Sandra Wilks. PhD Supervisor. Afaf El-Sagheer. Project description. A fully-funded 4 year PhD studentship is available for drug discovery research on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at the University of Southampton. Read more

Synthesis of anticancer alkaloids

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Luotonin A is a natural occurring plant alkaloid bearing polycyclic quinazolinone. It has shown inhibitory effect towards topoisomerase I (TP1), an enzyme responsible for antibiotic and anticancer. Read more

Novel design and formulation strategies to enhance drug delivery

The main research activities of my research group concern the improvement of traditional drug formulation and development of novel drug and formulation strategies to enhance bioavailability and patient acceptability. Read more
