This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a funded PhD in a novel area of kidney research, investigating the causal role played by the gut microbiome in diabetic kidney disease.
The gut barrier functions to prevent the passage of bacteria and bacterial products into the systemic blood circulation. If the gut barrier fails, bacterial products can infiltrate bodily tissues, causing metabolic and immune dysfunction.
The gut microbiota has a significant influence on host health, including nutrition, development of the immune system, infection…
Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks of ageing societies.
Fully funded PhD position in neural mechanisms of gut-brain communication. Dr. Yu Fu’s lab, Division of Neurometabolism in Health and Diseases.
Plastic pollution is a global issue and rapidly emerging as a crisis for both environmental and human health.
Research interests/description of main research theme. The Crouch Lab is looking for enthusiastic PhD students interested in the glycobiology of human gut microbes, including pathogens.
The gut microbiome is integral to the development of a normal immune system (Gensollen et al 2016). Disruption to the microbiome during early life – e.g, via antimicrobials, milk replacer, different diets - has long-lasting impacts on immune function in animals.
The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
The innate immune defence system responds to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron to restrict bacterial growth.
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous and will inevitably lead to human exposure. Plastic litter comes in a variety of sizes, but microplastics (MPs; <5mm) and nanoplastics (NPs; <1000nm) are of particular concern because of their small size and ability to enter organisms and food chains.
We are seeking a high performing undergraduate or Master's student who has a strong desire to undertake a PhD in Dr Rachael Barry’s Research group at Imperial College London.
The Project. Multispecies microbial communities can outperform single species in, for example, producing pharmaceuticals or fighting infections.
This project based in Dr Quince’s group at the Earlham Institute (. https://www.earlham.ac.uk/quince-group). will use machine learning to develop new computational methods for the integrated analysis of metagenomics and metabolomics data from the human microbiome.
Project background. The lifetime performance of a dairy calf is impacted by its health, nutrition and environment, with a sub optimal position in any of these factors affecting the animal’s ability to achieve its genetic potential.
