  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  The New Iron Age: Investigating the impact of Brain Iron on Neurodegeneration.
  Dr G Waiter, Dr C McNeil
Application Deadline: 30 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the role of iron in brain ageing and provide insight into its influence on neurodegeneration and cognitive decline.
  Iron storage and detoxification in human ferritins (LEBRUNU20DTP2)
  Prof N Le Brun, Dr A M Hemmings
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron is an essential micronutrient for life, but its reactivity also means that it is potentially extremely toxic, and uncontrolled reactions with O2 can generate reactive oxygen species, which cause cellular damage and death.
  Dynamic phytoplankton iron physiology and its impacts on global ecosystem function
  Dr B Ward, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Primary production couples solar energy arriving at the Earth’s surface to global biogeochemistry, linking elemental cycles together through the synthesis of organic molecules.
