  Mechanisms of cell membranes repair in health and disease
  Dr B Ciani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation of chemical reactions and packaging of genetic material is fundamental for the healthy state of any biological cell.
  Characterisation of bacterial effectors delivered by the type VI secretion system
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pathogenic bacteria secrete protein ’effectors’ that benefit the pathogen by allowing it to subvert, damage or kill the host.
  Biophysics of enzyme-catalyzed phosphoryl transfer
  Prof J P Waltho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using a combination of multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, high resolution X-ray crystallography, synthetic chemistry and computational chemistry we have explored the conformational behaviour of enzymes under a very wide range of conditions.
  Metabolomic studies of E. coli adaptation from anaerobic to aerobic growth
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Escherichia coli is a commensal organism that lives in the human gut. Occasionally it gives rise to food poisoning incidents, but mainly it is important for digestion and uptake of nutrients.
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that is particularly common amongst the elderly. It accounts for about 65% of all cases of dementia, and affects about 6% of people over 65, rising to 50% of people over 85.
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.
  The molecular basis of a genetic susceptibility gene in Alzheimer’s disease: the case of cystatin C
  Dr R Staniforth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Degenerative diseases associated with ageing occur sporadically and are associated with the misfolding and aggregation of a number of proteins in vivo.
