Honours project: Examine the role of the innate immune response to zika virus infection in the female reproductive tract (FRT) and placenta.
Honours project: Study new enzymes and the associated ferredoxins from bacteria found in interesting environments (or genes from metagenomes) or which carry out novel reactions.
Honours project: Use approaches to generate enzyme catalyst based systems to develop greener and sustainable processes for the production of useful and high value chemicals.
Honours project: Address the fundamental science behind the use of the steroid cholesterol as a source of energy by bacteria.
Honours project: Use a new phage-based directed evolution approach to evolve proteins with properties to make them suitable for use in synthetic circuit applications, such as in vivo biosensing or construction of bistable switches.
Honours project: Undertake behavioural analysis of zebrafish models in order to help find treatments for Alzheimer's Disease.
Honours project: Work with a team of researchers who are identifying and characterising novel drugs that kill apicomplexan parasites.
Honours project: Learn about the mechanism by which the major family of enzymes involved in drug metabolism catalyse oxidative transformations.
