Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

Developing 3D models to understand how interactions between bacterial biofilm and the host environment impact antimicrobial efficacy in a chronic infected wound

2.8 million people in the UK have a chronic wound which persist for months or years, causing pain, isolation, odour, and decreased mobility; patients with chronic wounds regularly report a deterioration in quality of life. Polymicrobial biofilms are present in greater than 70% of chronic wounds, making effective treatment incredibly challenging.

Microbiology of Hip Arthroplasty Cements

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Replacement hip and knee arthroplasties are common surgeries, with 31,000 hip and 90,000 knee replacements performed in England in 2020-21. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Sciences Research Opportunities at the University of East Anglia

UEA is a top tier, research-led university committed to making a substantial impact on global challenges facing society for over 50 years. Read more

(EPSRC) Engineering synthetic phages to optimize bacterial killing in phage therapy

Rising antimicrobial resistance threatens global health and risks undermining modern healthcare. A highly promising alternative to traditional antimicrobials is phage therapy, the use of bacteria-specific viruses to treat bacterial infections instead of relying on antibiotics1. Read more

Sensing wastewater for real-time public health PhD

The exciting PhD opportunity was funded by 5-year Leverhulme Trust Leadership Award, which aims on sensing wastewater for real-time public health, particularly on the development of novel low-cost and rapid sensors for rapid and on-site wastewater surveillance. Read more

Deciphering the mechanistic drivers of plant-microbe feedback

The soil microbial pool is an untapped reservoir of genetic diversity. In soil, plants form relationships with microbial consortia that aid in nutrient acquisition, plant defence, and general healthy functioning of the plant. Read more
