  Finding a cure for chronic hepatitis B: the science behind the cure
  Prof A Geretti
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) affects 257 million people worldwide. Every year nearly 900,000 people die of its complications – liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.
  Detecting Schistisome Infection in Biomphalaria and Bulinus Snails
  Dr C M Wade, Dr S Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.
  The impact of the MBL pathway on the outcome of infection with representative mycobacterial strains of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex
  Dr C Hölscher, Prof S Niemann
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent which are strains of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (Mtbc).
  Influence of HIV-1 opsonization on APC functions with regard to persistence of the virus and opportunistic pathogens, such as Mycobacteria spp. within relevant human 3D models
  Prof D Wilflingseder, Prof S Niemann
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV-1 and Mycobacterium tuberculosis represent detrimental co-epidemics worldwide, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, and co-infection accelerates progression of both diseases.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
  PhD studentship in Viral Immunology: role of T and NK cells in dengue virus infection
  Dr L Rivino
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. We are offering a 3-year funded PhD position to study the role of human T and NK cell immunity during infection with dengue virus (DENV), a flavivirus that is transmitted by infected Aedes mosquitoes.
  Characterization of C5aR2 expression and function in Toxoplasma gondii infection
  Prof J Koehl, Prof D Wilflingseder
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) is a widespread obligate intracellular protozoan parasite. It is of major medical importance during pregnancy and in immunocompromised individuals.
  Innate immune control of virus infection
  Assoc Prof K Helbig
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses infect all living organisms, and our laboratory studies the early host response to viral infections in humans, and other mammalian and non-mammalian animal hosts.
  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.
  Mathematical modelling of immune cell host-pathogen interactions
  Dr P Paszek, Dr M Muldoon, Prof I Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mammals have central cellular defence systems that resist infection by a range of pathogens. These involve the NF-κB and STAT signalling systems, which we have shown to use dynamics and timing to encode pathogen-associated signals.
