gut microbiome PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 15 gut microbiome PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

The Holistic Microbiome in Health and Disease: Linking the Oral, Gut and Respiratory Microbiomes

The human gut microbiome is recognised as a major determinant of health and disease. Studies to date, including those of the international Human Microbiome Project, have largely focused on individual body sites such as nose or mouth or faeces. Read more

Conversation between food nanoparticles and gastrointestinal cells: signalling, bioavailability, and healthy ageing

This fully funded PhD provides an exciting opportunity to pursue postgraduate research in a range of fields relating to Cell Biology, Nanotechnology, Food Science, Immunology, and Biophysics, with potential applications in healthy ageing and prevention of metabolic syndrome. Read more

Exploring the ying and yang of the early life microbiota

Project Overview. Join the Hall Lab at the University of Birmingham's Institute of Microbiology and Infection for an exciting PhD opportunity investigating the role of the beneficial and potentially pathogenic microbiota members in global infant populations. Read more

Tackling ageing in the gut: investigating the contribution of macrophages in the intestinal stem cell niche to gut maintenance and repair

Ageing of the gut is an important contributor to multimorbidities of the elderly, including frailty, and mental decline. However, the specific cellular and molecular mechanisms driving gut degeneration with ageing and how these lead to specific clinical outcomes are still unclear. Read more

Modelling the ecology and evolution of microbial communities

From the human gut to deep-sea sediments, microbial communities – or microbiomes – colonize virtually every habitat on earth. These microbiomes are central to ecosystem functioning and to host health, and therefore it is essential that we understand how and why they change over time. Read more

Understanding the Host-Pathogen interaction of Hepatitis E virus in pigs

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the causative agent of hepatitis E, a human liver disease with worldwide occurrence. Of particular interest is HEV genotype 3 (HEV-3) which is zoonotic, infecting a diverse range of hosts, including pigs. Read more

Clinical Gastroenterology: The regulation of GDH expression in Clostridioides difficile

Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI), the most common cause of infective antibiotic-associated diarrhea in the western world, is diagnosed by a combination of tests that firstly detect the organism, then the toxins that it produces (Planche 2013). Read more
