The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  Phages in the infant gut: good, bad or neutral? (ADRIAENSSENSQ20DTP1)
  Dr E Adriaenssens
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are the most abundant biological entity on the planet. They can be beneficial for human health by killing off pathogenic bacteria, but phages that integrate into the bacterial chromosome can also be detrimental to human health, by encoding genes that make the bacteria more virulent.
