  Modelling the effect of gender on survival in cystic fibrosis patients
  Dr J Barrett, Dr B Tom
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,000 people in the UK. Cystic fibrosis patients commonly experience respiratory symptoms, but the disease can also affect the digestive system, liver and bones.
  Systemic Inflammation in Cystic Fibrosis
  Prof CM Hedrich, Prof P McNamara
Application Deadline: 24 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a heritable multisystem disease, involving the lungs, exocrine and endocrine glands, the intestines, and other organ systems.
  Live-imaging and genetic approaches to explore cross-talk between tissue damage, immune dysfunction and infection within novel animal models of cystic fibrosis
  Dr H Weavers, Prof E Mahenthiralingam, Dr D N Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder driven by mutations in the CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) gene.
  MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Cystic fibrosis: restoring ion transport with small molecules
  Dr D N Sheppard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start 23 September 2019. This MSc by Research is a laboratory-based project which offers the exciting opportunity to spend 1 year in one of our State-of-the-Art laboratories (plus 1 year thesis writing) at the University of Bristol and experience life as a researcher.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
  Gastroesophageal reflux in respiratory disease: pathogenic role and improved management
  Prof L Houghton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is associated with many lung diseases, including but not limited to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), non-IPF interstitial lung disease (ILD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis (CF), non-CF bronchiectasis, asthma and idiopathic chronic cough.
  New antimicrobial agents for biofilm-related infections
  Dr K Fairfull-Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The adhesion of bacteria to surfaces and their subsequent ability to aggregate into colonies called biofilms is a significant problem in healthcare systems around the world.
  Dynamics of protein folding on the ribosome
  Dr D Balchin
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr David Balchin’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Proteins are synthesised on the ribosome as linear polypeptides that in most cases must fold into defined 3-D structures to be biologically active.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Pyocins as alternatives to antibiotics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections
  Dr C Penfold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pyocins are bacteriocins produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to kill closely related strains of the same species during times of environmental stress.
