  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Limiting infection: Identifying factors for the in vivo dissemination of themajor nosocomial pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae
  Dr T Schneiders, Prof D Dockrell, Prof C G Becker, Prof F Balloux
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The zebrafish infection model (Danio rerio) is a reliable verterbrate model which harbors a mammalian-like innate immune system.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Reconciling the mechanisms of HIV-1 infection acquisition and disease progression
  Dr K Atkins, Prof J Albert, Dr S Hué, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. If HIV-1 infection is left untreated the viral load of chronically infected individuals can be around 100,000 copies per millilitre of blood.
  Role of antigen-specificity for adoptive T-cell transfer (ACT)-based fungal therapy
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr D Zaiss
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Fending off of pathogen infections while at the same time maintaining tissue homeostasis is a central function of the immune system.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: New treatments for antimicrobial resistant TB via modulation of innate immunity
  Dr P Elks, Prof S Renshaw, Dr V See
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell type and are able to directly kill invading pathogens using a powerful artillery at their disposal.
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  New treatments for antimicrobial resistant TB via modulation of innate immunity
  Dr P Elks, Prof S Renshaw
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell type and are able to directly kill invading pathogens using a powerful artillery at their disposal.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Determination of how killer pathogenic fungi evade human innate immune defences
  Prof J Quinn, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
More people die from fungal infections than from malaria, tuberculosis, or ‘superbugs’ such as MRSA. Candida species are an important group of human fungal pathogens causing over 400,000 life threatening infections per year.
  “Super-selectors”: inter-host variation in antimicrobial resistance evolution
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr L McNally, Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
There is currently an intense focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in medical, scientific and political arenas owing to its broad and potentially devastating public health consequences.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  Development of a human cell-based model for otitis media
  Prof C Bingle, Dr L Bingle
Applications accepted all year round
Project details. Otitis media (OM) is the leading cause of paediatric surgery and the most frequent reason for the prescribing of antibiotics.
