  EASTBIO - Putting a spin on structural biology – biomedical applications of pulsed high field electron paramagnetic resonance
  Dr B E Bode, Dr G Smith
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Structural biology is investigating ever more complex systems. It emerges that often capturing the essential biological context is crucial for in vitro studies to become relevant to structure and function in vivo.
  *EASTBIO* Dissecting the structure and function of a highly unusual bacteriophage DNA ligase
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. In all forms of life, DNA ligase enzymes are essential for joining strands of DNA when new DNA is being made or when damaged DNA is being repaired.
  Bacterial chemical harpoons – how do TIE proteins function?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr U Schwarz-Linek
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to colonise a host and cause infections, bacteria need to gain a foothold by adhering to tissues such as cell surfaces. In general this is achieved through specific interactions between proteins and multimeric protein assemblies (pili) presented on the bacterial surface, and host molecules.
  Mechanistic, structural, and functional studies of a human carbohydrate processing enzyme
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr T Gloster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates, or sugars, are ubiquitous throughout nature and perform a number of important functions in our cells.
  Breaking the rule: blocking protein degradation by N-terminal tagging as a strategy to cure disease
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr CM Czekster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and project details. Proteins in a cell can last less than a minute to several days. Not only does the cell need to control protein levels but it must also eliminate proteins that are misfolded or abnormal in any way.
