  Medicinal Chemistry - ‘Prion diseases: how to develop therapies for prion diseases’
  Prof S Ward
Application Deadline: 23 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project will be funded through a Scholarship which will be delivered jointly by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol and Cardiff University.
  Novel Cyclic Peptides for Biomedical Imaging and Therapeutic Targeting
  Prof M Zanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic Peptides have a wide range of applications as drugs and diagnostics, and have often higher receptor affinity, metabolic stability and better pharmacokinetic properties compared to their linear counterparts, but their synthesis still presents significant challenges.
  Total synthesis of marine polycyclic ether natural products to tackle Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Kimber
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop an efficient asymmetric synthesis of marine polycyclic ether natural products.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Dr M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof C Schroeder, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Structure based design of novel warheads for use in peptide-drug conjugates
  Dr S Butterworth, Dr A Tirella, Dr D Wiseman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CMML) is an orphan disease defined by myeloid dysplasia, myeloproliferation and a malignant expansion of classical monocytes.
  Targeting ovarian cancer using fragment-based drug discovery
  Prof I McNeish
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funded by the CDT in Chemical Biology. Innovation in Life Sciences – 1+3 year PhD studentships. Supervisors. Professor Iain McNeish | Professor Alan Armstrong | Dr David Mann | Dr James Bull.
  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
  Synthesis and study of metal chelators against neurodegenerative diseases and cancer (ref:SF18/APP/Tetard)
  Dr D Tetard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Because of the involvement of metal in numerous biological processes, in particular in oxidative stress and enzymatic action, the study of metal chelators as potential therapeutic agents has been growing.
  Identification of novel anticonvulsant compounds
  Prof R Baines, Dr S Freeman, Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy and other associated seizures are a significant health concern, occurring in an estimated 1-2% of the world’s population.
  Design, Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of novel inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway with potential application as immune oncology agents
  Dr R Whitehead, Dr K Finegan, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small molecule inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway often possess interesting biological properties with many displaying potent anti-proliferative activity towards cancer cell lines.
