QUADRAT DTP: How parasites stabilise ecological communities and why it matters

Ecological communities are under extreme pressure worldwide. To guide conservation efforts and ensure that any interventions will be both appropriate and effective, we need to understand how communities work and respond to change. Read more

EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

Behavioural impact of environmental pollutants and parasites in gammarid amphipods

Project Rationale. Echinogammarus marinus is an ecologically important aquatic invertebrate and a good model for untangling the combined and separate impacts of parasitism and environmental pollutants. Read more

EASTBIO Are chronic infection stage trypanosomes different to acute stage forms?

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. This causes losses of several billion dollars in agricultural productivity in this region each year. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

Ultrastructural analysis of the mouse whipworm as a model for human trichuriasis

Gastrointestinal dwelling nematode parasites are extremely successful parasites of both man and animals infecting over a billion people worldwide and are responsible for considerable morbidity and ill health worldwide. Read more

Histone lactylation: a novel epigenetic feature in malaria parasites?

This project will investigate a new epigenetic modification in the human malaria parasite Plasmodium. Epigenetic marks, such as histone acetylation and methylation, play particularly important roles in virulence processes in this parasite – such as the switching and silencing of virulence genes. Read more

Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite relationships

Interactions between parasites and their hosts are one of the major driving forces in ecology and evolution. Social insects, as one of the dominant group of land animals and possessors of complex social systems, provide a fascinating host system within which to study these forces. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Dissecting the molecular machine responsible for singular antigen expression and immune evasion in African trypanosomes using cryoEM.

In the host-pathogen arms race, antigenic variation is one of the most powerful and highly sophisticated virulence mechanisms. Some of the deadliest parasites, such as African trypanosomes and malaria parasites, are able to systematically alter the identity of proteins displayed to the host immune system. Read more
