  Decoding microbial ‘cross talk’ in polymicrobial infections
  Dr N Bandara, Dr A Nobbs
Applications accepted all year round
A significant proportion of human infections are caused by microbial pathogens. These organisms interact socially to build highly organized, well-coordinated, hierarchical structures known as biofilms.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round
Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Development of metabolomics for understanding AMR in mixed infections
  Prof R Goodacre
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Developing an individual-based mathematical model for antibiotic resistant bacteria in urinary tract infections
  Dr R Bowness
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is an increasingly serious threat to global public health. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases, resulting in prolonged illness, disability, and death.
  Natural products as prophylaxis and treatment for gonococcal eye infections
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round
Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria can infect the eyes of infants born to mothers infected with gonorrhoea, up to 80% of whom have no symptoms of their disease.
  Is it safe to go into the sea? Climate change and waterborne disease (LAKEUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Dr I Lake, Dr C Baker-Austin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific background. There is huge uncertainty in terms of how climate change may affect health human (IPCC 2014), and this PhD provides an opportunity to explore one exciting area, namely how climate change may affect waterborne disease.
  Interactions between housing environment, chronic stress, and pathogenic infections in laying hens
  Dr J Guy
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Eggs are an important staple food in our society, not only for direct sale to consumers, but also in a wide range of prepared foods and baked goods.
  Investigating the molecular basis of this adhesion and the development of tetraspanin-based reagents for preventing bacterial infections
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round
The tetraspanins are a diverse, conserved family of eukaryotic membrane proteins. Their principal feature is the ability to form dynamic multi-molecular assemblies in cell membranes known as tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEM).
  Examining the Potential of C-type Lectin-like Receptors (CLRs) as Immunotherapy Targets
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr S Orr
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Invasive fungal infections kill more people per year than TB or malaria. Immunosuppressed patients (cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, acute myeloid leukaemia, HIV, bone marrow transplant patients) are at high risk of developing invasive fungal infections.
