  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene-NOWNANO)
University of Manchester & Lancaster University, North West Nanoscience Doctoral Training Centre. Graphene NOWNANO is a recently established Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Manchester in partnership with Lancaster University.
  (BBSCR DTP) Design of allosteric small molecule probes of fibrosis using molecular dynamics simulations
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr K Piper Hanley, Dr R Whitehead
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Integrins are a family of protein receptors that play a major role in cell survival, growth and migration. Their function is to transmit signals across the cell membrane by undergoing an elegant large scale structural rearrangement.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Development of novel peptide hydrogel therapies for endometriosis and endometrial cancer
  Prof K Marshall, Prof A Miller, Dr D Fischer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Endometrial cancer and endometriosis are common gynaecological disorders, which arise from the uterine lining. Cancer develops by glandular cell differentiation, whilst implantation and growth of endometrial-like tissue in endometriosis induces a chronic inflammatory reaction causing pain and infertility.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Fostering the next generation of molecular diagnostics: 3D microfluidic RNA-sensing hydrogel biosensors for clinical analysis of miRNA biomarkers.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof A Saiani, Dr H Aojula
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be carried out at the interface between academia and industry, in close collaboration with our industrial partner, Manchester BIOGEL Ltd, to facilitate translational development of a novel diagnostic platform by bridging the gap between a scientific discovery and its future commercialisation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Isothermal Amplification for viral detection
  Dr S Jones, Prof P Vallely
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The need to develop better techniques capable of improving detection of viral infections, whilst also improving the assays associated with identifying suitable antivirals is of upmost importance.
  Identification of novel anticonvulsant compounds
  Prof R Baines, Dr S Freeman, Prof S Allan
Applications accepted all year round
Epilepsy and other associated seizures are a significant health concern, occurring in an estimated 1-2% of the world’s population.
  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
Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CMML) is an orphan disease defined by myeloid dysplasia, myeloproliferation and a malignant expansion of classical monocytes.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Driving enzymatic carboxylation using supercritical CO2
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay, Prof I Larrosa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The use of CO2 as a chemical feedstock is attractive for various reasons, not least as a means to address the desirable reduction of global CO2 levels.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) High Pressure Biocatalysis: generating generic and scalable approaches to biocatalysis using engineered enzymes
  Dr S Hay, Prof A Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Oxidation reactions play a key role in the bulk chemical industry and enzyme-mediated biocatalysis offers an alternative to the use of traditional catalysts, which can suffer from poor chemical selectivity and require the use of harsh reaction conditions and produce hazardous waste products.
  (BBSRC DTP) Bacterial excretion - implications for biotechnology and antimicrobial resistance
  Dr N Dixon, Prof N Scrutton, Dr J Cavet
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD project will exploit new ways of working by providing training in a variety of approaches namely this will include lab based skills in molecular and microbiology, data processing and statistical analysis, and analytical flow methods such FACS.
