  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Interrogating the functions of intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes
  Dr M Swamy
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Within the epithelial layers of our barrier surfaces resides a complex and unconventional pool of T cells collectively called intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL).
  Intestinal Immunology: exploring disease associated colonic mesenchymal populations, investigating molecular determinants of their evolution and function in barrier breakdown in IBD
  Prof A Simmons, Dr H Koohy
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We study how the intestinal immune system functions to enable the symbiotic relationship with the intestinal microflora required for health.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  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.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: How growth signals regulate replication licensing and cell division in normal and cancerous oesophageal cells
  Prof J Blow, Dr I Nathke, Prof R Petty
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
In order to maintain genetic stability and prevent the amplification of chromosome segments, the process of DNA replication occurs in two strictly non-overlapping phases.
  Developing an innovative gastrointestinal model to assess the effects of antimicrobial agents on the gut microbiota: microbiology and molecular mechanisms to ensure long term healthy outcomes for patients receiving treatment
  Dr S Fouch, Dr J Brown
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Sarah Fouch and Dr James Brown.
  PhD in Cancer & Genetics - Targeting intestinal cancer using 3D organoid cell models
  Prof J R Sampson, Dr L Thomas
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Over one million new cases of colorectal cancer (CRC) are diagnosed worldwide each year. Inherited factors appear to be involved in up to 35% of cases.
  Development and evaluation of new inflammatory biomarkers and the structure and function of the intestinal microbiome in canine chronic enteropathy
  Dr M Watson, Dr S Salavati, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019

  Immune control of parasitic infection: Defining the role of gel-forming mucins in protection against gastrointestinal nematodes
  Prof D Thornton, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round
Infection by gastrointestinal parasites (GI) is one of the most common types of parasitic infection in man and animals worldwide.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating microbiome–host interactions in the preterm gut using metagenomics and stem-cell derived enteroid “mini guts”
  Dr C Stewart, Dr J Kirby, Dr C Lamb
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Preterm infants born. This project seeks to extensively characterise the preterm gut microbiome and to subsequently investigate how bacteria and preterm gut epithelial cells interact.
