  Exploring the pathway to severe asthma: an analysis of UK routine data
  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
  Dr J Busby, Dr L G Heaney
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Background. Asthma affects an estimated 300 million people worldwide with a population prevalence of approximately 15% in the UK.
  To determine the role of PGD2/CRTh2 axis on non-classical monocytes in asthma
  Prof C Brightling, Dr A Wright
Applications accepted all year round
PGD2 stimulation of non-classical monocytes is active in asthma and promotes T2-dependent memory/effector T cell responses. The Prostaglandin D2 / prostaglandin D2 receptor (also known as CRTh2) axis plays an important role in allergic and Type 2 (T2)-mediated moderate to severe asthma [1-3].
  Using statistical and functional analysis to investigate the contrasting disease specific roles of IL6R and the chr17q12 locus in the development of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma
  Dr J Curtin, Prof A Simpson
Applications accepted all year round
The Arthritis Research UK and Respiratory Centres at the University of Manchester have extensive research programmes investigating the genetic components of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and asthma.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  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.
  Debugging Lung Disease: Applying mathematical modelling for a precision medicine approach to the Pulmonary Microbiome
  Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Supervisors. Professor Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova,College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Improving the design of medical devices used by asthmatic children
  Dr A Marzo, Prof J Wild
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects 5.4M sufferers in the UK alone. Control of the disease can be achieved by administrating drugs (bronchodilators) using pressurised Metered Dose inhalers, often enhanced by the combined use of asthma spacer devices.
  Inhalers and inhaler technology: contributing to research of pharmaceutical inhaler products and improving the quality of life of patients - Ref: HVUF2018
  Mr H Versteeg
Applications accepted all year round
Inhalers are widely used to treat chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Several 100 millions of patients worldwide rely on pressurised metered dose inhalers (pMDIs) or dry-powder inhalers (DPIs) to manage their condition and ensure a good quality of life.
  Investigating inflammasome regulation in human myeloid cells
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr R Coll, Prof P Moynagh
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Inflammasomes are protein complexes that control inflammation in both infection and sterile injury. Aberrant inflammasome activation is a driver of many diseases including.
  Future Climate: Future Pollen and Spores
  Dr F Pope
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Globally, atmospheric CO2 concentrations are rising because of anthropogenic activity. They will continue to rise in the coming century.
