  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
"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.
  Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites
  Dr S Perkins, Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In terms of numbers of cells, we are more bacteria than we are human, and the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our gut (our ‘microbiota’) are vital for biological processes and affect many aspects of health.
  Gut microbiota and atherosclerosis: a bacterial perspective
  Dr Y Chen, Dr E Jameson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Research in the past two decades has now convincingly demonstrated that humans are “super-organisms”. We coexist with trillions of microorganisms, collectively termed the microbiota.
  Plant fibre degradation by the human and animal gut microbiota
  Dr D Bolam
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The gut microbiota of many mammals, including humans and farmed animals, plays a critical role in the digestion of plant polysaccharides (often called dietary fibre) from crops and the products of this anaerobic fermentation provide major health benefits to the host.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019
The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Are metabolites generated by the microbiota key to a young immune system?
  Prof K Simon, Dr G Alsaleh
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
By 2050, the world’s population aged >60 years is expected to be 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015, a major concern for the individual and for society.One of the contributing factors is ageing of the immune system.
  Are metabolites generated by the microbiota key to a young immune system?
  Prof K Simon
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/12. By 2050, the world’s population aged >60 years is expected to be 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015, which is a major concern for the individual and for society generally.
  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.
  New Privilege nutrients of Human Gut Microbiota from Western Diet (ref: SF18/APP/Munoz)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round
The human large bowel contains ~1013 bacteria, referred to as the human gut microbiota or HGM. There is considerable interest in deploying prebiotic and probiotic strategies to maximise the impact of the HGM on human health.
