  Pharmacoengineering of advanced RNA-nanomedicines to treat cystic fibrosis (CF)
  Prof S Cryan, Prof A Heise, Prof C Greene
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder caused by a mutation in a single gene responsible for the production of a protein called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR).
  Macrophage-bacteria interactions in cystic fibrosis: the cellular microbiology of the novel opportunistic bacterium Achromobacter species
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof M Valvano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic infection and persistent inflammation in people with cystic fibrosis (PWCF) lead to progressive lung damage.
  Characterizing the immunogenic properties of bacterial extracellular vesicles (EVs) of the Cystic Fibrosis airway
  Dr J Coppinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recurrent Pseudomonas (P) aeruginosa infection is common in chronic pulmonary diseases including cystic fibrosis (CF), chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) and a leading cause of hospital acquired pneumonia.
  Understanding the effects of lung disease and vaping to the lung through breath-based bioanalytics (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS4)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your breath contains a vast amount of information about you. whether you’ve had a drink, damaged your liver, your blood blood glucose levels, even type of breast cancer treatment can be assessed through breath.
  The role of bacteriophages in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in Chronic Respiratory disease. (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH1)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a key opportunistic respiratory pathogen in patients with cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.
  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.
  Disrupting biofilm formation in nosocomial pathogens
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A biofilm by definition is a structured community of bacterial cells enclosed in a self-produced polysaccharide matrix and adherent to an inert or living surface.
  Nanoparticle delivery of antibiotics for treatment of pulmonary infection
  Dr V Kett, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In respiratory diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and COPD, the lungs are colonized by diverse polymicrobial bacterial communities.
  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.
  How do organelles use short tracks to make long trips in cells
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our body contain internal structures (organelles) that perform essential functions e.g. energy production. Organelle transport is vital for function and the viability of cells and the whole body.
  Oral vitamin D spray as a novel treatment for 22q11 deletion syndrome
  Dr A McNeill, Dr C Mazzà
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

22q11 deletion syndrome is the most common genetic disorder, affecting about 1/2500 people (as common as cystic fibrosis). It is due to a small missing piece of chromosome 22 on the long arm (q) at position 11.
