  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  PhD in Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation
CMAC, the EPSRC Future Manufacturing Research Hub in Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation  is a major initiative that aims to accelerate the adoption of continuous manufacturing technologies for high value chemical products such as pharmaceuticals.
  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Investigating the efficacy of novel antimicrobial mixes on microorganisms, surfaces and cells lines; an integrated study
  Dr A Kelly, Dr S Schwikkard, Prof D Wertheim
Applications accepted all year round
The projection that within 50 years there will be more deaths from antimicrobial resistance than through cancer highlights the continual need for mining new and novel antimicrobials with activity against planktonic microbes and biofilms alike1.
  Natural products as prophylaxis and treatment for gonococcal eye infections
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round
Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria can infect the eyes of infants born to mothers infected with gonorrhoea, up to 80% of whom have no symptoms of their disease.
  Novel assays for screening drug – lipid membrane interactions
  Dr G Shearman, Prof R Singer
Applications accepted all year round
Small molecule therapeutics represent a major contributor to human health and wellbeing both in developed and developing economies.
  PhD Studentship in New Methods for Antibody-Drug Conjugation
  Prof J Sweeney
Application Deadline: 30 May 2019
A fully funded 3.5-year PhD studentship in the area of antibody-drug conjugation chemistry is available, to be carried out in the group of Professor Joe Sweeney at the Department of Chemistry, Lancaster University, and in collaboration with AbbVie, Inc.
  C-H Activation of Cyclopropanes
  Dr G Pritchard
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
Cyclopropane rings are an important ring system in a number of pharmaceutical drugs. The project will look at C-H activation of cyclopropane rings to make new C-C bonds.
  Iron-Catayzed Cross-Coupling
  Dr G Pritchard
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
Carbon-Carbon bond formation is fundamental to synthetic organic chemistry. The project will look at make sp3-Sp1 carbon-carbon bonds using Fe as a metal catalyst.
  Rapid Synthesis of Fluorinated Drug Scaffolds
  Dr G Weaver
Applications accepted all year round
This project will involve the synthesis and characterisation of new heterocyclic compounds which can act as core scaffolds for drug development.
