Project at University of Surrey: Dietary protein, the microbiota and gut barrier function: a gatekeeper of metabolic & immune health

The gut barrier functions to prevent the passage of bacteria and bacterial products into the systemic blood circulation. If the gut barrier fails, bacterial products can infiltrate bodily tissues, causing metabolic and immune dysfunction. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: The impact of early life programming on resistance to helminths in ruminant livestock

The gut microbiome is integral to the development of a normal immune system (Gensollen et al 2016). Disruption to the microbiome during early life – e.g, via antimicrobials, milk replacer, different diets - has long-lasting impacts on immune function in animals. Read more

Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.

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.

PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences – The hydroecology of glacial demise

This project will focus on modelling the ecological impact of glacial melt. Climate warming is melting glaciers at unprecedented rates, however the ecological consequences of this are largely unknown. Read more

Project at Queen's University Belfast - Nutritional programming in replacement dairy heifers: Future-proofing herd performance, health and behaviour

Project background. The lifetime performance of a dairy calf is impacted by its health, nutrition and environment, with a sub optimal position in any of these factors affecting the animal’s ability to achieve its genetic potential. Read more

Understanding the role of fungal effector proteins in antagonistic fungus–microbe interactions

Background. Fungi secrete a collection of proteins to their surrounding environments. In the case of plant-pathogenic fungi, many of these proteins are virulence factors, termed effectors, which function to promote host colonization through the modulation of plant physiology or immunity1.

Leveraging localised mutations to expand the host range of phage cocktails against Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Bacteriophages are enigmatic biological entities that have co-existed with bacteria for millions of years. The therapeutic potential of phages is enormous but is often limited by their very high host specificity. Read more
