  Gastrointestinal modulation using omega-3 and probiotic strategies and its effect on cardio-metabolic health in obese and non-obese populations
  Dr J Roberts, Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  Bowel and Cancer Research funded PhD studentship: A Novel Genetic System to Study Tumour Heterogeneity and Clonal Competition in Gastrointestinal Tract Cancers
  Research Group: Barts Cancer Institute
  Dr P Ribeiro, Dr S McDonald
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
A graduate with an interest in biology, genetics and their application for the study of the basic mechanisms of cancer, with or is expecting at least an upper second class honours degree in Biology, Genetics or a revelant subject area, is required for this project aimed at developing a novel genetic system to study tumour heterogeneity and clonal competition in gastrointestinal cancers.
  Immune control of parasitic infection: Defining the role of gel-forming mucins in protection against gastrointestinal nematodes
  Prof D Thornton, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round
Infection by gastrointestinal parasites (GI) is one of the most common types of parasitic infection in man and animals worldwide.
  G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signalling in the mouse and human gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
  Prof H Cox
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
To establish the mechanisms of GPR35 signalling in the mouse and human GI tract. GPR35 is an orphan receptor that lacks an endogenous ligand but is highly expressed in mammalian GI tract, particularly in the colon and is implicated in the onset of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  A Gastrointestinal Epithelial Organoid Assay to Identify Non-Toxic Chemoradiation Combinations for Cancer Treatment
  Prof A Kiltie, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Every year worldwide half a million patients receive radiotherapy to their abdomen and/or pelvis for tumours including rectal, oesophageal, bladder, prostate or cervix cancer.
