host-pathogen PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 17 host-pathogen PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Understanding the Host-Pathogen interaction of PRRSV

The main objective of the projects is to study the host-pathogen interaction of PRRSV-1 with the host immune system in pigs. While PRRSV-1 can be resolved by the host before the appearance of neutralising antibodies in blood, a role for the adaptive immune system is envisaged. Read more

Understanding the Host-Pathogen interaction of PRRSV

The main objective of the project is to study the host-pathogen interaction of PRRSV-1 with target immune cells and in pigs. The hypothesis is that PRRSV-1 can be resolved by the host without the use of neutralising antibodies. 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

The impact of nutritional scavenging on host-pathogen interactions, antifungal efficacy and emergence of antifungal resistance

Infections caused by Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) cause more deaths globally than any other fungal disease. Over 20 million are affected annually with four million having life threatening invasive and chronic infections with high morbidity and mortality up to 90%. Read more

Discovery and functional investigation of the shared molecular mechanisms of host immunoregulation by the pathogens that cause malaria and sepsis.

Infectious diseases cause enormous humanitarian and economic burdens worldwide. Designing interventions that prevent, cure, or control many infections is difficult because pathogens have evolved sophisticated ways of subverting host immunity. Read more

Systems immunology and multi-omics approaches to understand protective immunity to human malaria

This PhD project aims to develop and apply computational approaches that integrate systems biology and molecular immunology to understand host-pathogen immunity and predict immune control of malaria. Read more

Development and application of recombinant antibodies to map pathology-related changes in glycosaminoglycans on breast cancer cells

The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (SVMS) undertakes a wide range of research from improving knowledge of fundamental biological processes, disease control including developing diagnostics and therapeutics, through to animal health and welfare, and population studies. Read more

Vaccine Engineering

An opportunity exists for a PhD position in vaccine engineering. Vaccines are one of the most effective health care interventions but remain a challenge for many diseases, and in particular intracellular pathogens such as malaria where T cell responses are particularly desirable. Read more

Molecular Immunology of Malaria

An opportunity exists for a PhD position in the molecular immunology of malaria. The focus of this project will be to apply cutting-edge technologies to understand the molecular basis of protective immunity to malaria. Read more
