  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Development of antiviral peptidomimetic enzyme inhibitors
  Dr L Trembleau, Dr H Deng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that circulate and evolve among various animals. They can cause mild human illnesses such as the common cold or more serious respiratory diseases as seen in the recent outbreaks of SARS (2002), MERS (2012), and COVID-19 (2019).
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  New Products from a Sustainable Ammonia Cycle
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Renewable sources of energy are essential for the world to improve its carbon footprint and to become carbon neutral. Solar power and wind are of increasing interest particularly in hot country’s with large areas of land for solar panels.
  Toward developing next-generation therapeutics - targeting the undruggable interactome
  Dr W Houssen, Prof M Jaspars, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic and modified cyclic peptides are very appealing scaffolds especially as therapeutics with several examples reach the clinic e.g.
  Development of Nano-Enabled Drug Carriers to Overcome Pan-Chemoresistance of Cancer Stem(-like) Cells
  Dr M Najlah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The acquired resistance induced by repetitive exposure of cancer cells to anticancer drugs is one of the major limitations to successful chemotherapy.
  EPSRC DTP Hub – Biosensors and Diagnostics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiff University has established a new interdisciplinary training hub (IDTH) for a postgraduate student training and research program that addresses the urgent need for state-of-the-art biosensors and diagnostics.
  Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents
  Dr Y Mehellou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although cancer therapeutics, mainly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have been extremely useful in the treatment of cancer, this disease is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
  Microalgae as an alternative for antimicrobial resistance pressure reduction

  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes.
  Comparative genomic analysis of variant features within the Neisseria spp.
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of rapid genome sequencing had generated an explosion of bacterial genome sequence data, much of which has not been fully explored and investigated.
  Design and synthesis of novel iron chelators as a therapy for thalassaemia patients.
  Dr S Wren, Dr J Barker, Prof R Singer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron overload can be a huge issue for people coping with thalassaemia. This project will involve the synthesis of novel ion chelators that are effective and ultimately exhibit less side-effects of existing treatments.
