  Characterising mechanisms that control Marek's Disease Virus genome release from telomeres during reactivation from latency
  Dr N J Royle, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Infection by Marek’s Disease Virus (MDV) is followed by latency, T-cell lymphomas and reactivation. It has significant deleterious effects on chicken health and welfare, with an annual estimated loss close to $2 billion to the global poultry meat and egg production industries.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Iron acquisition using host lactoferrin by the bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof J Ketley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the main cause of bacterial food-borne disease in the UK and is a global public health priority. Infection and transmission are usually linked with contaminated food or water, with chicken being a major source.
  The role of Vitamin D in enhancing the different arms of the immune response in broiler chickens
  Dr P Sakkas
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Meat type chicken are compromised in terms of their welfare and productivity as they are continuously challenged with gastrointestinal pathogens.
  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.
  Using AI to Drive Drug Discovery for Membrane Protein Targets
  Dr PC Biggin
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Lead supervisor. Prof Phil Biggin, Department of Biochemistry, Oxford. Commercial partner. Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Milton site, Oxfordshire.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease: Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
