  Impact of RhoA deregulation on smooth muscle cell phenotypic dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating healthcare burden. It inflicts significant physical and emotional distress on patients and their carers, and treatment of T2D and its complications accounts for ~10% of the entire NHS budget.
  Investigating the mechanism of action of dual antiangiogenic/ antineoplastic drugs using organotypic co-culture of fibroblasts and endothelial cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Elies Gomez, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  Investigation of the impact of a student-centred pharmacy curriculum delivered predominantly by Team-Based Learning (TBL) Using a Mixed Methods Approach
  Research Group: Education Innovation Research and Development
  Dr S Jones, Dr S Twedell, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some would consider that there is a misalignment between educational practice and educational research with a high reliance of content delivery and less on information processing.
  Ion channel gating kinetics and structure implication for drug delivery
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Prof M Bloj
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are proteins which sit in the membrane of every cell in the body and control the flow of positively charged ions such as sodium and potassium into and out of the cell.
  Ion channel gating kinetics and structure implication for drug delivery
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr Z Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels are proteins which sit in the membrane of every cell in the body and control the flow of positively charged ions such as sodium and potassium into and out of the cell.
  Kinase regulation of HOX transcription factors – a potential target in cancer?
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Prof R Morgan, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The HOX genes are a family of transcription factors that have a number of important functions in cancer, including cell survival and metastasis.
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  New strategies in integrin antagonism
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr H Sheldrake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors which mediate cell-cell and cell-ECM adhesion, and signalling across the cell membrane involved in pathways controlling cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, cell survival and apoptosis.
  Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
