  Ecological drivers of the evolution of symbiosis
  Prof M Brockhurst, Dr A Beckerman, Prof D Cameron
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Symbiosis is common across the tree of life and has played a major role in the evolution of life on earth. Symbiosis is an important source of evolutionary innovation, allowing species to gain new functions and inhabit novel ecological niches, and caused several of the major evolutionary transitions (e.g.
  Magnetic-silk Core-shell Nanoparticles for Targeted Drug and Gene Delivery
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Silk is a protein fibre produced by silkworm. It has been used for centuries because of its unique properties.
  Reactive Inkjet Printing of Flexible Devices for Cancer Diagnostics, Environmental Monitoring and Energy Store
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flexible devices such as microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs) have recently received significant attention as a potential platform for low-cost diagnostic assays.
  Reactive Inkjet Printing of Functional Swimmers
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production of small-scale devices that can autonomously generate thrust via catalytic reactions within fluidic environments has become an increasingly active field and has led to a focus on potential applications including environmental monitoring and remediation, in vivo drug delivery and repair, and lab on a chip diagnostics.
  Longitudinal study on the relationship of the gut microbiome to disease progression in the UK MND population
  Prof C McDermott, Dr S Boddy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a devastating neurodegenerative condition characterised by progressive deterioration of motor functions until death normally results from respiratory failure.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
  Characterisation of the genotype and phenotype of epithelial cells invaded by the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis.
  Dr S Whawell, Dr G Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of the Gram negative anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis is consistently associated with the more severe forms of periodontal disease and its ability to invade host epithelial cells is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  The oral microbiome, ROS and the development of oral cancer: a role in Fanconi anemia?
  Prof K Hunter, Dr S Collis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA) develop cancers of the mouth, esophagus or anogential region. A number of reasons have been suggested, but the millions of bacteria that are naturally resident in these body sites might be a significant contributory factor.
  Transport of essential nutrients across the outer membrane of a bacterial pathogen
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria possess a second membrane, the outer membrane (OM), that serves as an additional line of defence against noxious agents, including antibiotics.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
