  Differentiation of B lymphocytes in response to vaccination
  Prof K Toellner
Applications accepted all year round
B lymphocytes upon contact by antigens undergo a complex programme of differentiation and migration through lymphoid microenvironments, before they differentiate into either plasma cells or convert into memory B cells.
  Regional humoral immunity in the lung; exploring the function and biology of resident memory B cells in resistance against influenza virus
  Dr T Arnon, Prof I Udalova
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Influenza virus is a common airborne pathogen that continues to present a significant medical challenge causing over 3 million cases of critical illness and up to 500,000 deaths per annum.
  B cell development and immune regulation: understanding B cell development and diseases associated with abnormal antibody production
  Prof R Cornall, Prof S Davis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Our aims are to understand B cell development and diseases associated with abnormal antibody production. Inadequate or excessive immune responses lead to immunodeficiency or autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, which place a major economic and social burden on world health and the quality of human life.
  Exploring mechanisms of resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy in breast cancer
  Dr C Kanthou, Prof N Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent angiogenesis inducer and is often overexpressed in cancer. Circulating levels of VEGF as well as tumour microvessel density are of prognostic value in breast cancer.
  Epigenetic mechanisms in CD5+ malignant B lymphocytes
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr E Kostareli, Prof K Mills
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
B-cell receptor (BCR) signalling is a complex molecular network critical for normal B-cell development and function. Among the numerous proteins of BCR pathway, Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) has gained significant attention over the last decade.
  Cryptosporidium parvum – B-cells as a route to control
  Dr R Flynn
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cryptosporidium parvum infection presents a major threat to calf health and survival as a global cause of enteric disease. Calves under the age of 2 months are 41 times more likely to shed oocysts in comparison with animals aged 4 months or above.
  Formal Methods: Mechanically Checking the Semantics of Hybrid Event-B
  Dr R Banach
Applications accepted all year round
These days, the world is increasingly being populated with systems that interact directly with the physical world. Of course such systems have existed for a long time in niche safety-critical areas, eg.
  Developing precision medicines for B-cell leukaemias and lymphomas
  Dr S Macip, Prof M J S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round
In this project, we propose to look for novel therapies for B-cell leukaemias and lymphomas in a translational and mechanistic fashion.
  B Cell Immunology: studying the cellular interactions and molecular events that lead to the development of high affinity and protective antibodies during humoral immune responses
  Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
We study the cellular interactions and molecular events that lead to the development of high affinity and protective antibodies during humoral immune responses.
  Adaptive immunity in multiple sclerosis: studying the antigen specificity of autoreactive B cells in MS
  Dr S J Curnow
Applications accepted all year round
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease involving immune attack by autoreactive T cells and B cells. We have been studying the phenotype, frequency and antigen specificity of these adaptive immune cells in human MS.
