  Understanding how the bitter taste receptor, T2R38, regulates the intestinal epithelium - a study from microbiota to the intestinal epithelium
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr H Chichger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/biomedical.
  Development of “FXR-targeted” Nutraceuticals for Treatment of Intestinal Diseases
  Prof S Keely, Dr S Das
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The incidence of intestinal diseases, such as colorectal cancer (CRC) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is significantly higher in Western societies than elsewhere in the world.
  The role of the diet in affecting neurocognition and mood through effects on the production of neuromodulators by the intestinal microbiome (Ref: SF20/APP/FORD)
  Prof D Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria can produce metabolites that have a neuromodulatory function or direct neuroactive properties. The best-studied examples include free fatty acids, which activate microglial cells, and the neurotransmitter GABA.
  Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.
  Dr M Khoder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a grave threat to public health causing 50000 deaths per year in the US and Europe alone. With virtually no new antibiotic classes created in the new millennia, identifying novel strategies to preserve and extend the useful life of existing antibiotics has therefore become a priority.
  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Assessment of novel antimicrobials against foodborne bacteria using human intestinal organoids and systems biology (Schuller U20MEDSF)
  Dr S Schüller, Dr G Le Gall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is a global health emergency causing at least 700,000 deaths each year due to drug-resistant infections.
  Transcriptional regulation of intestinal stem cells during ageing
  Dr J Korzelius
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is a complex phenomenon that can be defined as a decline of organism function over time. Many cellular processes are altered during the course of life and contribute to the loss of function of many organ systems with advanced age.
  How does the human gut microbiota protect against infection with enterohaemorrhagic E. coli? (SchullerS-NarbadAU19SF)
  Dr S Schüller, Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human body is populated by trillions of commensal bacteria (microbiota), most of which reside in the intestine and have established a symbiotic relationship with the host.
  Bioengineering of patient-derived explants (PDEs) and 3D organoid culture systems for tissue regeneration, cancer and drug discovery
  Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The intestine provides an attractive route to model biologically important intestinal processes and a unique opportunity for the direct identification and analysis of factors that contribute to development and maintenance of both normal as well as the development of neoplasia.
  MSc by Research Programme: How do T cells maintain quiescence at the intestinal epithelial barrier?
  Dr M Swamy
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Optimisation and Preclinical Evaluation of Targeted Nanoformulations of Anti‐TNF‐α Therapeutics for the Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  Dr Z Ramtoola, Dr B Kirby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the patient and comprises of Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC).
  Defining the microbiome environment in patients with biliary tract cancer and its implications for therapy
  Prof J W Valle, Dr M McNamara
Application Deadline: 30 November 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) encompass cancers of the extrahepatic/intrahepatic bile ducts, gallbladder and ampullary carcinoma. The only potentially curative option is surgical resection; median overall survival (OS) in the advanced setting.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human microbiome is essential for human health as it is crucial for the development of immunity, tissue development, host metabolism and protection from various infectious diseases.
  Investigating differentiation processes in normal and tumoral cells which affect phenotypic heterogeneity and stemness
  Dr P Ordonez Moran, Dr A Shams Nateri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is focused on understanding tissue renewal in health and disease using the intestine as a model system to study adult stem cell biology for a therapeutic benefit.
