  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  The role of eosinophils in skin inflammation and carcinogenesis
  Dr J Strid
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
We invite applications for a British Skin Foundation-funded PhD studentship to investigate the role of eosinophils in skin inflammation and cancer development in the laboratory of Dr Jessica Strid ([email protected]).
  The role of cells in the persistence of inflammation
  Prof C Buckley
Applications accepted all year round
A characteristic feature of chronic inflammatory reactions is their persistence and predilection for certain sites. Our group investigates the role that tissue resident stromal cells (fibroblasts) play in determining both the switch to persistence as well as the site at which inflammation occurs.
  Developing a three-dimensional research model of neutrophil-mediated tissue destruction during inflammation
  Dr J Hirschfeld, Prof I L C Chapple, Dr M Grant
Applications accepted all year round
Background. The proposed research has the goal to develop a novel 3D model to measure and visualise tissue destruction mediated by migrating neutrophils in vitro.
  Regulation of intestinal immune homeostasis and inflammation by the gut microbiota
  Dr E Mann, Dr M Travis
Applications accepted all year round
Our immune system must fight harmful pathogens, but remain silent against harmless substances such as the trillions of bacteria found in the gut that are beneficial for health.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation: Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, experimental medicine studies, CRISPR engineered mice, and cell biology.
  The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology
  Dr P Foster, Dr R Hardy
Applications accepted all year round
Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round
As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  Investigating nerve:immune cell cross talk during gut inflammation
  Dr J Pennock, Prof A MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
The gut contains more nerves than any other part of the body outside the brain. These nerves contribute to pain responses and essential muscle movement, but their role during inflammation is not known.
  Understanding how inflammation affects brain disease
  Dr D Brough, Dr C Lawrence
Applications accepted all year round
We know that both peripheral and central inflammation influence neurological disease. This influence progresses and worsens diverse brain diseases, but the mechanisms involved are poorly understood.
