We have 14 phage 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 does the dynamic intra-membrane aggregation of phage lysis proteins kill bacterial pathogens?

This is an interdisciplinary project. It will provide a unique opportunity to obtain training in a wide range of interdisciplinary skills, including protein engineering techniques, protein purification, atomic force microscopy, neutron reflection and scattering as well as molecular dynamics simulations. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

High-throughput biomaterials discovery

Polymer biomaterials have revolutionised a range of areas from drug delivery, to antimicrobials, to cellular cryopreservation. There are 1000’s of possible monomer combinations, molecular weights and architectures to be explored, and even small differences can dramatically change their properties. Read more

Self-funded PhD- Understanding the molecular mechanism of a bacterial genome defence system and its synergy with CRISPR-Cas

Prokaryotes have evolved over billions of years alongside their viruses, the bacteriophages, or “phages”. To prevent viral infection, prokaryotes have evolved rudimentary immune mechanisms, the most widespread and well-studied of which are the Restriction-Modification and the CRISPR-Cas enzymes. Read more

Engineering Ice-Binding Proteins

Ice-binding proteins are produced by extremophiles to help them survive in the worlds coldest places. They have many potential applications, from the storage of cells/tissue to transport infrastructure. Read more
