  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.

  Evaluation of interventions to address hepatitis C virus infection among children born to mothers with a history of injecting drug use in Scotland
  Prof S Hutchinson, Dr N Palmateer
Application Deadline: 19 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

REF SHLS-20002 Hutchinson. There are an estimated 41,000 to 59,000 children of problem drug using parents in Scotland, representing about 4-5% of children aged under 16.
  The role of bacteriophages in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in Chronic Respiratory disease. (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH1)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a key opportunistic respiratory pathogen in patients with cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.
  Nanoparticle delivery of antibiotics for treatment of pulmonary infection
  Dr V Kett, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In respiratory diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and COPD, the lungs are colonized by diverse polymicrobial bacterial communities.
  Single-cell proteomic analysis of host-factor cleavage during norovirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr M Iturriza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human norovirus is a major human pathogen, and the causative agent behind ‘winter vomiting disease’. Typically, infection is self-limited, causing diarrhoea and vomiting lasting from 24-72 hours.
  Defining Mycobacterium tuberculosis in lung tissue – a novel discovery platform for new vaccine and drug targets
  Dr S Waddell, Dr J Salguero, Dr S Sharpe, Dr A Rawkins
Application Deadline: 29 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship to join our tuberculosis research group in the Department of Global Health and Infection at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).
  Self-triggered smart biomaterials
  Dr C McCoy, Dr N Irwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major problem associated with medical devices is infection. With infection rates of approaching 100% in some devices, ways to prevent formation of bacterial biofilm on medical device surfaces are urgently required.
  Understanding hepatitis E virus infection in pigs and humans
  Dr N Fletcher
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an emerging viral infection, and an increasing cause of acute viral hepatitis in the developed world. In developed countries, infection with HEV is most commonly associated with the consumption of contaminated meat, mainly from pigs.
  Characterizing the immunogenic properties of bacterial extracellular vesicles (EVs) of the Cystic Fibrosis airway
  Dr J Coppinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recurrent Pseudomonas (P) aeruginosa infection is common in chronic pulmonary diseases including cystic fibrosis (CF), chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) and a leading cause of hospital acquired pneumonia.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  What happens within? Organellular interactions during plant disease and defence
  Prof M Grant, Prof L Frigerio
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop losses due to biotic stress contribute disproportionately to yield losses, generally accounting for ~25% of the crop. Thus, developing novel approaches to restricting pathogen infections of crops and consequently yields must be a key futurey objective.
  Severe infection in coronavirus and haemorrhagic fever viruses
  Prof J Hiscox, Dr T Fletcher
Application Deadline: 19 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the past twenty years we have seen several outbreaks of global concern caused by coronaviruses and haemorrhagic fevers. These include, SARS, MERS, COVID-19 and Ebola virus.
  Unravelling the dynamics of lipid bilayers and membrane proteins and their reaction to toxins and viral infection on the single molecule level using label-free microscopy.
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr MY Young, Dr O Castell
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately 30% of the proteins in a cell are membrane proteins, which represent more than 60% of all known drug targets and play a critical role in both infection and immunity.
  Macrophage-bacteria interactions in cystic fibrosis: the cellular microbiology of the novel opportunistic bacterium Achromobacter species
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof M Valvano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic infection and persistent inflammation in people with cystic fibrosis (PWCF) lead to progressive lung damage.
