Scholarship Description: Background to the projects: Our current inability to deliver biopharmaceuticals such as peptides, proteins and genes into cellular targets is a major impediment to obtaining effective therapies against a range of diseases. These PhD studentships will be integrated into the objectives of COMPACT, a €30 million European academic and industrial consortium whose aim is to identify and understand transport pathways across major biological barriers that can be utilised for delivery of nanomedicines. The successful students will acquire a variety of specialist skills utilising a wide range of state-of-the-art techniques including molecular biology, nano-biotechnology, chemical biology, advanced microscopy techniques and culture of epithelial and endothelial cells as models for biological barriers. It will be necessary for the students to interact closely with academic and industrial collaborators across COMPACT. Through their supervisors and international COMPACT collaborators they will be able to initiate publications in peer review journals, submit abstracts to meetings and attend national and international conferences.
