  Production and assessment of antiviral prophylactic properties of natural biomolecules against avian influenza and Newcastle disease viruses affecting poultry production
  Dr M Iqbal, Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Poultry infected with avian influenza viruses and/or Newcastle disease viruses suffer severe morbidity and mortality which can gravely impact poultry production.
  Innate antiviral immunity of human embryonic stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr S Macias, Dr P De Sousa
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Unlike differentiated or somatic cells, embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are unable to activate their complete innate immune response when confronted with pathogens such as viruses.
  BBSRC DTP targeted studentship - Investigating the role of herpesvirus glycoprotein E in modulation of antiviral host responses and virus spread.
  Dr C Crump
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Herpesviruses are highly successful pathogens that cause disease in animals and humans. In particular, the alphaherpesvirus subfamily includes significant veterinary pathogens many of which are designated notifiable diseases by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
  Determining the role of molecular co-chaperones in virus infection: a novel antiviral approach
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof A Whitehouse, Dr R Foster
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Viruses are associated with approximately 10-15% of human cancers, resulting in about 2 million new cases every year in the world.
  Molecular Biology of Antiviral Signalling in the CRISPR system
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Prof M F White
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
CRISPR is a prokaryotic adaptive immune system that has been harnessed for a wide range of genome engineering, synthetic biology, biotechnology and healthcare applications.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How interferon defends the brain against viral invasion
  Dr C Duncan, Prof S Hambleton, Dr D Rico, Prof W S James
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Contrary to the perception of the brain as an ‘immune-privileged’ organ, it is now clear that the brain engages a potent immune signalling network to defend itself against viral infection (encephalitis).
  Regulation of the antiviral and neuroinflammatory states of human tissue macrophages
  Prof W S James, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The macrophage is an evolutionarily ancient sentinel of the health of all of the body’s tissues. clearing away dead cells and debris; as brain-resident microglia, remodelling defunct neuronal connections; nurturing tissue stem cells; detecting and responding to pathogens.
  Structural and mechanistic analysis of Chikungunya virus replicase processing
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A.K Tuplin, Dr J Fontana, Dr S Muench
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Chikungunya virus is a mosquito-transmitted arbovirus that re-emerged as an epidemic in 2005 around the Indian Ocean, before spreading across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Characterisation of new mechanisms of host subversion by rhinovirus, the common cold virus
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr A Mousnier, Dr U Power
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Rhinovirus infections are the main cause of the common cold and a major cause of exacerbation of chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), leading to an acute worsening of symptoms.
