Showing 1 to 10 of 66
  Exploring the importance of fungal-specific aspects of RNase MRP in ribosome production
  Dr C Schneider
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Fungal contamination leading to reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage accounts for the loss of 10- 20% of food production worldwide.
  Examining the Potential of C-type Lectin-like Receptors (CLRs) as Immunotherapy Targets
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr S Orr
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Invasive fungal infections kill more people per year than TB or malaria. Immunosuppressed patients (cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, acute myeloid leukaemia, HIV, bone marrow transplant patients) are at high risk of developing invasive fungal infections.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr G Powney, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Use of novel technologies for reasoned identification of antifungal drug targets: sulphur metabolism in Aspergillus fumigatus.
  Prof E Bignell, Dr J Amich
Applications accepted all year round
Fungal diseases kill more than 1.5 million and affect over a billion people worldwide. Azoles are the only orally available antifungals and resistance to these drugs is increasing, which translates into a rise in mortality.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round
Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  Uncovering new signalling nodes in the interaction between wheat and the fungal pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola
  Dr A Sadanandom
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Mycosphaerella graminicola is an economically important fungal pathogen of wheat leaves and the causal agent of Septoria tritici blotch disease (STB).
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round
Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Engineering drug sensitivity to screen for new classes of antibiotics for the emerging, drug resistant fungal pathogen Candida auris
  Dr B Panaretou
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This is a 4-year CASE studentship based at King’s College London and the laboratories of the Industrial partner, Public Health England in Salisbury.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Applications accepted all year round
Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Using machine learning to predict post-storage apple fruit quality with microbiomes, climatic and imagery information (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_1)
  Prof X Xu, Dr B Li, Prof X Hong
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
