  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Regulation of innate immune response by enhancer elements and genetic variants within them
  Research Group: Functional Gene Control
  Dr M Spivakov
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding DNA elements such as gene enhancers play key roles in gene regulation, particularly upon stimulus response and in development.
  (MRC DTP) Innate immune crosstalk and orchestration of mucosal immunity
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof A MacDonald
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrier tissue sites - including the gastrointestinal tract, lung and skin – are the primary site of exposure to a multitude of foreign organisms and environmental challenges.
  Regulation of intestinal immune responses to commensal bacteria by innate lymphoid cells
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal bacteria present in the gastrointestinal tract provide beneficial roles for the host, such as supporting nutrient metabolism.
  Inhibition of innate immunity by vaccinia virus: a discovery tool for host restriction factors
  Prof G L Smith
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between viruses and their host reveals a fascinating conflict between host defense and virus evasion. The project concerns vaccinia virus (VACV), the live vaccine used to eradicate smallpox, and how it shuts down host innate defenses.
  EASTBIO Understanding the rules of mitochondrial nucleic acid escape in innate immune activation
  Dr A Dhir, Dr S Tait
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are the ‘power-stations’ of our cell, providing energy for cellular function. Mitochondria have evolved from ancient bacteria that invaded our cells a billion of years ago and have ‘integrated’ into our biological system in an endosymbiotic relationship.
  Proteolytic network regulating the human innate immune response
  Dr D Boucher, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune system is our first line of defence against a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Upon infection, immune cells, such as macrophages and neutrophils, will assemble signalling platforms termed inflammasome, to restrict and clear the insult.
  Innate immunity and dendritic cells
  Dr C Reis e Sousa
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Caetano Reis e Sousa’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Research in the Immunobiology Laboratory is centred on the receptors and signalling pathways that detect infection, injury and cancer.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
  Trained innate immunity in atherosclerosis
  Prof R Choudhury
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This laboratory studies the role of the innate immune system (monocytes / macrophages) on the progression and regression of atherosclerosis.
