  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From bench to bedside; using patient-based assays that model the gut microbiome-host interface to aid diagnosis and inform treatment of immune dysregulation
  Dr R Payne, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Immune dysregulation and impaired gut mucosal barrier function are intimately linked features of two paediatric inflammatory gut disorders; namely graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
  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.
  Plant fibre degradation by the human and animal gut microbiota
  Dr D Bolam
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The gut microbiota of many mammals, including humans and farmed animals, plays a critical role in the digestion of plant polysaccharides (often called dietary fibre) from crops and the products of this anaerobic fermentation provide major health benefits to the host.
  Are metabolites generated by the microbiota key to a young immune system?
  Prof K Simon
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/12. By 2050, the world’s population aged >60 years is expected to be 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015, which is a major concern for the individual and for society generally.
  Are metabolites generated by the microbiota key to a young immune system?
  Prof K Simon, Dr G Alsaleh
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
By 2050, the world’s population aged >60 years is expected to be 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015, a major concern for the individual and for society.One of the contributing factors is ageing of the immune system.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019
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.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  Gut microbiota and atherosclerosis: a bacterial perspective
  Dr Y Chen, Dr E Jameson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Research in the past two decades has now convincingly demonstrated that humans are “super-organisms”. We coexist with trillions of microorganisms, collectively termed the microbiota.
  Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites
  Dr S Perkins, Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In terms of numbers of cells, we are more bacteria than we are human, and the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our gut (our ‘microbiota’) are vital for biological processes and affect many aspects of health.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating microbiome–host interactions in the preterm gut using metagenomics and stem-cell derived enteroid “mini guts”
  Dr C Stewart, Dr J Kirby, Dr C Lamb
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Preterm infants born. This project seeks to extensively characterise the preterm gut microbiome and to subsequently investigate how bacteria and preterm gut epithelial cells interact.
