  Novel drug target validation for treating Diabetes Mellitus (ref: SF18/APP/Soundararajan)
  Dr M Soundararajan
Applications accepted all year round
The important cellular entities responsible for fighting against infections in our body are the T cells. T cells are however also shown to play a central role in the development of autoimmune diseases (AIDs) as “T cell activation hijacking” is the major autoimmune reaction causing mechanism observed in several AIDs.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of deubiquitylase (DUB) inhibitors to target interferon-mediated diseases
  Dr E Zeqiraj, Dr F Del Galdo, Dr E Vital
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
We are excited to offer a PhD studentship to study deubiquitylating (DUB) enzyme inhibitors and their potential as therapeutics for interferon-mediated diseases.
  How does immunometabolism vary in time and space in the germinal centre?
  Dr A Clarke, Prof R Cornall
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The germinal centre (GC) reaction is responsible for the production of high-affinity antibodies and immune memory. It is vital for an effective humoral immune response, for example following vaccination.
  The role of tissue damage-associated lipids in triggering pathogenic neutrophil responses in inflammatory diseases
  Prof I Udalova, Prof C Buckley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Neutrophils are well recognised for their ability to rapidly enter the site of tissue damage and microbial infection where they kill microorganisms by either ingesting them or releasing anti-microbial activities and facilitate wound repair.
  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.
  Role of Desmoglein-3 in regulating the YAP-Hippo pathway in cancer
  Dr H Wan
Applications accepted all year round
Project Description. Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD within a multidisciplinary and integrative research team in The Centre of Immunobiology and Regenerative Medicine, Institute of Dentistry.
  New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands
  Dr N Grimsey
Applications accepted all year round
Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
  Defining active immunoprotection and regulatory T cell promotion in hair follicles
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof K McElwee, Dr N Botchkareva
Applications accepted all year round
In the non-scarring inflammatory hair loss disease Alopecia areata (AA) lymphocytes specifically target hair follicles (HFs) and disrupt hair growth.
  4 Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme: The role of protein ubiquitylation is controlling a novel innate immune signalling network.
  Prof Sir Philip Cohen
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Toll-Like Receptors are activated by substances produced by microbial pathogens, such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a component of the cell wall of gram-negative bacteria.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Reverse migration in neutrophils – using mathematics to understandmedicine
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Dr R Insall, Dr S Vermeren
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Prof Robert Insall. Dr Sonja Vermeren. PhD project summary. This interdisciplinary project seeks to understand how cells of the immune system migrate away from sites of infection after their jobs are done.
