  Understanding the fusion mechanism of Herpes Simplex Virus
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J Fontana, Prof N A Ranson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is a highly contagious pathogen that causes diseases ranging from skin lesions to encephalitis and neonatal infections.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round
Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  BBSRC DTP targeted studentship - Investigating the role of herpesvirus glycoprotein E in modulation of antiviral host responses and virus spread.
  Dr C Crump
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Herpesviruses are highly successful pathogens that cause disease in animals and humans. In particular, the alphaherpesvirus subfamily includes significant veterinary pathogens many of which are designated notifiable diseases by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
  Cryo-electron microscopy of nucleic acid processing machines from bacterial and human viruses
  Prof A A Antson, Dr J Blaza
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Viruses are the most common biological entities on our planet, infecting all living things. In humans, viral infections like herpes and poliovirus cause illnesses, particularly in the elderly, babies or people with lowered immune defense.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How interferon defends the brain against viral invasion
  Dr C Duncan, Prof S Hambleton, Dr D Rico, Prof W S James
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Contrary to the perception of the brain as an ‘immune-privileged’ organ, it is now clear that the brain engages a potent immune signalling network to defend itself against viral infection (encephalitis).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Why do multiple pathogenic viruses including HIV, Influenza, Ebola, Herpesviruses and Adenovirus target the cellular transcription machinery?
  Prof S A Wilson, Prof A Whitehouse
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Viruses frequently hijack cellular processes as part of their life cycle. A recent proteomics screen revealed a core of mammalian proteins which are targeted by multiple viruses, defining four critical cellular nodes in viral infections (Nature 487:486-490).

  Thermophage portal proteins for nanopore biotechnology
  Prof A A Antson, Dr S Greive
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Recent advances in nanosensing technology are promising to revolutionise medicine, the management of healthcare, food supply chains and environmental safety through sensitive measurement and digital tracking of specific biomarkers or small molecule pollutants.
