  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof I Toth, Prof A Kleczkowski, Dr S Humphris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Production and export of seed potatoes is of immense value to the UK economy, yet threatened by multiple disease threats.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Defining picornaviral replication complexes by molecular virology and state-of-the art imaging - Novel strategies for disease control
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof N J Stonehouse, Dr M.R. Herod, Prof D.J. Rowlands
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Picornaviruses are responsible for a number of serious diseases, including polio and foot-and–mouth disease. There is an urgent need to develop new therapeutic strategies to address the continuing issue of picornavirus infection.
  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.
  Protein quality control and neurodegenerative disease - to test the hypothesis that BAG6 contributes to the quality control of a range of disease-linked proteins in the cytosol
  Dr L Swanton, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round
Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, which if allowed to accumulate can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death [1].
  Investigating motor impulse control in Parkinson’s disease using non-invasive brain stimulation
  Dr H MacDonald, Dr C J McAllister
Applications accepted all year round
The ability to control our urges and impulses is arguably one thing that sets humans apart from other species. We have the capacity to think before we act.
  Investigating Early Worsening of Diabetic Retinopathy with Rapid Improvement in Glycaemic Control
  Prof S Harding, Dr P Burgess, Dr U Alam, Dr A Stylianides
Applications accepted all year round
Precis. Early worsening of diabetic retinopathy following rapid improvement in glycaemic control is a well-recognised phenomenon.
  Establishing the links between skin microbiome, pollution and disease susceptibility in a native UK amphibian species
  Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
