  Improving responses to skin & soft tissues infections among people who inject drugs.
  Prof V D Hope, Dr H R Sumnall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skin & soft tissues infections (SSTIs) among people who inject drugs (PWID) are a substantial health problem.[1] They result from the difficulties in maintaining good injection practice and hygiene in the environments were illicit psychoactive drugs (such as heroin) are typically consumed.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Evaluation of fungal complement evasion mechanisms via the lectin pathway
  Prof P Garred, Prof J Koehl
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group of professor Peter Garred at the University of Copenhagen has deciphered the components of the lectin complement pathway.
  Role of pentraxin and interaction with complement in immune defence against opportunistic infections
  Prof C Garlanda, Prof S Meri
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PTX3 is a soluble pattern recognition molecule which acts as a key component of humoral innate immunity in opportunistic infections of fungal and bacterial origin.
  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.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  Common severe childhood infections, innate inflammatory responses and cardiometabolic risk: The VASCular changes aFter INfectious Diseases (VASCFIND) study
  Prof D Burgner, Dr S Bekkering
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SUMMARY. Infection, the commonest reason for childhood hospital admission, is a major driver of inflammation and is associated with cardiometabolic risk and disease.
  New antimicrobial agents for biofilm-related infections
  Dr K Fairfull-Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The adhesion of bacteria to surfaces and their subsequent ability to aggregate into colonies called biofilms is a significant problem in healthcare systems around the world.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  DsbA Foldases from Multidrug Resistant Pathogens as Targets for New Antimicrobials
  Assoc Prof M Totsika
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2014 the World Health Organization declared antimicrobial resistance a global health priority. With 10 million deaths per year predicted by 2050 due to drug resistant infections, new therapies to tackle multidrug resistant pathogens need to be developed now.
