We have 58 Biological Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Sheffield

The identification of allosteric inhibitors of high value therapeutic targets

This study will develop a novel approach to identify allosteric inhibitor sites on a wide variety of high-value therapeutic targets, including protein kinases, protein phosphatases and small G-proteins. Read more

Finding the cause of familial facial (Bell’s) palsy

The facial (VII) cranial nerve controls the muscles of facial expression, supplies taste sensation to parts of the tongue and controls a small muscle connected to the ear drum. Bell’s palsy is the clinical condition in which there is impaired function of the facial nerve, associated with facial muscle weakness. Read more

Exploring Uncharted Territories: Investigating the Impact of Follicular Fluid Extracellular Vesicles on Spermatozoa Function

The intricate dynamics underlying successful mammalian reproduction continue to captivate scientific inquiry. However, the mechanisms governing the interaction between spermatozoa and the female reproductive tract remain elusive. Read more

Antisense technologies as potential treatments for Cushing’s disease

Cushing’s disease is a devastating condition caused by a pituitary corticotroph tumour that over-expresses the proopiomelanocortin gene (POMC) and secretes high levels of ACTH. Read more

PhD in land-based CO2 removal strategies for climate change mitigation

In a world facing the urgent challenge of climate change, it's clear that we need to take action. This PhD project aims to investigate land-based strategies for removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. Read more

Understanding the mechanisms underlying cognitive training effects

Can the repetitive practice of cognitive tasks – as in ’brain training’ programs – effectively enhance cognitive abilities such as reasoning? After more than 20 years of intensive research efforts, this question is still highly controversial, with prior studies and meta-analyses yielding inconsistent results. Read more

Cognitive performance in videogame players and esports athletes

Previous research suggests that playing action videogames, especially first-person shooters such as Counter-Strike, is related to cognitive performance, including attention, executive functions, and information processing speed (e.g., Bediou et al., 2023). Read more

The analysis of HIF function in DNA repair and genome stability

DNA damage is a factor that underlies many human diseases. Such damage results in mutations, and if such genetic alterations occur in tumour suppressor or proto-oncogenes it can lead to cancer. Read more

Molecular characterisation of scavenger receptor ligand binding.

Scavenger receptors have been identified as being important in Human disease and normal physiological responses. Scavenger receptors are a large family of cell surface receptors that are expressed ubiquitously. Read more

The regulation of scavenger receptors in cancer

The expression of some scavenger receptors has been identified as being poor for cancer prognosis. Scavenger receptors are a large family of cell surface receptors that are expressed ubiquitously in the Human body. Read more
