  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  The impact of gut microbiome and diet interplay on neurodegeneration
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

"Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks and economic burden for the society.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Computational methods to explore the relationship between gut microbes, metabolites and human health
  Research Group: Twin Research & Genetic Epidemiology

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 1st January 2020. Metabolomics and the gut microbiome are intricately involved in susceptibility and potentially monitoring of metabolic diseases.
  How does the human gut microbiota protect against infection with enterohaemorrhagic E. coli? (SchullerS-NarbadAU19SF)
