  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.
  Early development of the avian mucosal immune system
  Prof P Wigley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Chickens are the most frequently reared livestock species in the world. In modern commercial production control of infectious diseases through vaccination and the use of microbial-based therapies such as probiotics are critical to protect the flocks.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  A new approach to modeling the impacts of climate change on avian biodiversity (WARRENUENV19ARIES)
  Prof R Warren, Dr J Price, Dr J Pearce-Higgins
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Climate change is affecting biodiversity. Species distributions are changing and spring is advancing. In the future, risks are projected to be much greater.
  The genetic basis of female fertility in the zebra finch
  Dr N Hemmings, Prof J Slate
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding variation in reproductive success is a fundamental goal of evolutionary biology, with broad implications for fields such as conservation and reproductive medicine.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S. J Reynolds
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
