  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 Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  How does the human gut microbiota protect against infection with enterohaemorrhagic E. coli? (SchullerS-NarbadAU19SF)
  Dr S Schüller, Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human body is populated by trillions of commensal bacteria (microbiota), most of which reside in the intestine and have established a symbiotic relationship with the host.
  Developing novel drugs targeting gut microbiota-accelerated heart diseases
  Dr Y Chen, Prof T Bugg, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is increasing evident that human is a “super-organism”. We co-exist with trillions of microorganisms in our body (collectively named as microbiota), and our health can largely depend on the interrelationship between ourselves and associated microbiome.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  MSc by Research Programme: A synthetic community approach to define the genetic mechanisms underpinning plant-microbiota interactions in the rhizosphere
  Dr D Bulgarelli
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.

  The microbiome as a mediator of focal epilepsy
  Prof G Cavalleri, Dr N Delanty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a group of common brain disorders characterized clinically by the occurrence of recurrent unprovoked seizures. There are many different types of epilepsy, both common and rare.
  Bacteriophage role in the establishment of preterm infants’ gut microbiota (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH3)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Survival of very preterm infants has increased over the last 20 years, but late onset sepsis (LOS) and necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) remain a major cause of death and ongoing developmental problems in this population.
  RVC PhD: Investigating the role of gut microbiota in feline diabetes mellitus and hypersomatotropism
  Dr R Gostelow, Dr L Davison, Dr D Connolly, Dr D Xia

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a common feline endocrinopathy, estimated to affect 1 in 200 cats examined in UK primary-care practice.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human microbiome is essential for human health as it is crucial for the development of immunity, tissue development, host metabolism and protection from various infectious diseases.
  Health span extension mediated by the diet and microbiota
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although human longevity has increased through improved nutrition, sanitation and healthcare in the last century, the full benefits of this increased lifespan can only be realised if there is a parallel increase in the health-span of an individual.
  Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.
  Dr M Khoder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Novel Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence approaches for microbiome analysis (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BASHTON)
  Dr M Bashton
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The microbiome, the collective genomic entity of all microbiota - bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa, and viruses of an environment holds an immense amount of information, a considerable amount of improvement with respect to data analysis and real-time interpretation is still needed to bring research out of the lab and into everyday usage in our home environment and health system.
