  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge. Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is particularly problematic, for example the UK has ~20,000 infectious diarrhoeal cases every year, and progressive complications can lead to death in ~3% of infected patients.
  Dissecting the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round
Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridium difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospital and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.
  Biogenesis of the Clostridium difficile cell surface
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round
Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in our hospitals. Infection normally follows disruption of the gut normal flora by broad-spectrum antibiotic treatment.
  Understanding the structure and function of a new bacterial iron store
  Dr J Marles-Wright
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Bacteria do not possess the membrane-bounded organelles, such as mitochondria and chloroplasts, that are characteristic of eukaryotes.
  Mucosal Vaccines - using Bacillus subtilis spores to develop vaccines and adjuvants against disease
  Prof S Cutting
Applications accepted all year round
Heat stable bacterial spores are being used as novel mucosal vaccines. Spores of Bacillus subtilis have been used successfully as both vaccines and adjuvants against a number of diseases.
  Engineering bacterial therapeutics with enhanced metabolic properties
  Dr G H Thomas, Dr J P J Chong, Dr D Heeg
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Our understanding of the human gut microbiome is increasing at a rapid pace, to the point where important metabolic interplay between components of the community are now understood.
