  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  Rapid blood platelet analysis: linking micro-capillary assays to novel digital microscopy and smartphone technology
  Dr CI Jones, Dr A Edwards, Prof W Harwin
Application Deadline: 4 March 2019
Blood clots allow us to recover from tissue injury. Platelets are small blood cells that prevent bleeding by clumping together to form clots.
  Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine
 Four Year Integrated PhDs in Cancer, Immunology, Infection and Biomedicine. Research in. • The Cell Biology and Immunology of Cancer.
  How does nutritional status affect plant immunity? (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_3)
  Dr R Harrison
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  PhD In Infection & Immunity - Profiling superantigen-induced immunosupression of unconventional T cells during severe sepsis
  Dr J McLaren, Prof M Eberl, Prof D Price
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Sepsis is a life-threatening illness that is triggered by an exaggerated immune response to severe infection. This unbalanced reaction induces hyperinflammation, shock and organ dysfunction that forms the primary cause of death in hospitalised patients.
  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Understanding immune stimulation of novel viral vaccine vectors
  Dr R Stanton, Dr E Wang
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an exciting viral vaccine vector, that can protect against HIV and cancer in animal models. However it is also a pathogen that causes significant disease and death on a worldwide level, mainly in transplant recipients and unborn babies.
  Global analysis of evasive strategies developed by Staphylococcus aureus to circumvent complement and innate immunity
  Dr M Laabei
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen responsible for a wide-spectrum of diseases that range from mild superficial skin diseases to life-threatening infections.
  (BBSRC DTP) Chitinase-like proteins (CLP) as first responders to infection and injury: understanding CLP-glycosaminoglycan interactions
  Prof T Day, Prof J Allen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Parasitic worms (helminths) infect most mammals including a third of the human population. Although rarely causing death, these parasites cause significant morbidity in part by the damage they inflict while migrating through the tissues.
  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Modifying human cytomegaloviruses to drive expansion of effector natural killer and cytotoxic T cells
  Dr E Wang, Dr R Stanton
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Natural Killer (NK) cells and CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) are immune cells known to kill cancerous and virus-infected cells and are being used to treat forms of these diseases.
