Artemisinin Derivatives to Fight Malaria

A self-funded PhD position is available in the Fielding and Ismail research groups. We investigate unpaired electron species that play an important role in biological and materials chemistry. Read more

Dissecting the molecular basis for malaria-linked blood vessel pathology in the brain and retina

Cerebral malaria (CM) remains a major cause of morbidity and death. Plasmodium falciparum infected red blood cells cause disruption of the blood-brain/retina barrier, haemorrhage and localised thrombosis in the CNS. Read more

How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.

Investigating the relationship between two unique apicomplexan parasite organelles: the Eimeria refractile body and Plasmodium crystalloid

Apicomplexan parasites are widespread protozoan parasites of animals. The phylum Apicomplexa contains thousands of species and includes major pathogens of humans, domestic animals and livestock. Read more

Developing gregarine apicomplexans as aquatic symbiosis model system

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative, seeks to advance the understanding of aquatic symbioses that include microbial partners. Read more

Supramolecular Self-associating Amphiphiles (SSAs) – next generation weapons in the fight against antimicrobial resistance

One of the greatest threats against global human health is the rise of antimicrobial resistant bacterial infections, which are currently responsible for a greater number of global deaths then those currently attributed to HIV/AIDS or malaria. Read more

Platelets in health, ageing and disease: new diagnostics and treatments

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), and also have roles in immunity, inflammation, cancer metastasis, Alzheimer's disease and a range of infections, such as dengue, HIV-1, malaria, and COVID-19. Read more

Using microfluidics and flow cytometry to develop novel diagnostics for Leishmaniasis

The Leishmaniases are a group of neglected tropical diseases caused by >20 species of Leishmania parasites that are spread by >90 species of phlebotomine sand flies. 1 billion people in Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Mediterranean are at risk, with the poor and malnourished being disproportionately affected.

Peptide hydrogels as a long-acting multipurpose drug delivery platform for combined contraception and HIV prevention

HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death in women of reproductive age worldwide. HIV and unintended pregnancies are prevalent in developing nations due to the lack of effective female contraceptive choice. Read more

Self funded BMS Project : A nuclear enterprise: characterisation of an antigen expression factory for immune evasion in African trypanosomes

Applications accepted for PhD Only. Antigenic variation is a highly sophisticated virulence mechanism. Several pathogens, such as African trypanosomes and malaria parasites, are able to systematically alter the identity of proteins displayed to the host immune system. Read more
