Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is one of the most serious threats globally with more than 25,000 patients dying in the EU/UK annually, and it is predicted that the local microenvironment. The successful applicant will gain multidisciplinary expertise across AMR bacteria will kill 10 million people by 2050. Economically, the loss to global GDP is predicted to be > £5 trillion over the next 40 years.

  1. Recently, the use of nanoparticles has been suggested as an approach to fight pathogens.
  2. Nan particles possess several advantages: i) the choice of nanoparticle surface coating can be chemically altered to provide target specificity, drug delivery and higher reactivity with site-specificity; ii) nanoparticle properties can be enriched according to the chemical composition of the core (e.g. magnetic, optical and redox, etc.); iii) there is compelling evidence that some types of metal nanoparticles can kill bacteria by various mechanistic
  3. pathways such as the generation of free radicals  following anexternal stimulus (e.g. light), by the release of metal ions, and through the highly reactive organic shell at the areas of chemistry, physics and biology utilizing a broad range of characterization techniques

 Eligibility Criteria   

  1. The successful applicant will gain multidisciplinary expertise across the areas of chemistry, physics and biology utilizing a broad range of characterization techniques
  2. The main objective of this project will be to synthesize and test new types of nanoparticles that target and kill pathogens that they are in the ‘priority list’ of the World Health Organization.
  3. The Kanata’s group (http://www.licn.phys.soton.ac.uk/) has an international reputation and expertise in nanoparticle fictionalization and nanoparticle-cell interactions.
