Parasite responses to host immunity

Information on this PhD research area can be found further down this page under the details about the Widening Participation Scholarship given immediately below. Read more

Developing in vitro techniques to investigate host-parasite interactions in shrimps

In the heart of Asia's thriving shrimp industry lies a silent threat that undermines both economic vitality and food security. devastating diseases caused by viruses and other microbial pathogens, notably gregarine apicomplexans. Read more

Modulation of host immune response by secreted proteins from parasitic worms

Background. To establish chronic infection, parasitic worms manipulate their mammalian hosts’ immune system. This immune modulation is often mediated by excreted or secreted parasite glycoproteins (ES proteins). Read more

Manipulation of neuroimmune responses and behaviour by infectious agents

This project is available exclusively to self-funded students who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. The project focuses on how infectious agents modify the individuals that they infect and how neuroimmune responses to infection moderate behaviour changes in warm-blooded animals and humans.

Discovery and functional investigation of the shared molecular mechanisms of host immunoregulation by the pathogens that cause malaria and sepsis.

Infectious diseases cause enormous humanitarian and economic burdens worldwide. Designing interventions that prevent, cure, or control many infections is difficult because pathogens have evolved sophisticated ways of subverting host immunity. Read more

Helminth products as macrophage “trainers”: a novel tool to induce anti-inflammatory trained immunity

The innate immune system can display characteristics of immunological memory. This phenomenon, termed “trained immunity”, refers to the long-term functional reprogramming of innate immune cells after the encounter with infectious or non-infectious agents that influences their capacity to respond to a secondary stimulus.
