Disrupting autophagy for parasite control

Parasites infect one third of the human population, causing staggering levels of morbidity that centre on the most economically deprived populations. … Read more

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

Defining the mechanisms of vaccine mediated resistance against whipworm parasites

Vaccination is one of the greatest advances in global health; however most successful vaccines have been made empirically. We still have little insight into how many vaccines work and the mechanisms by which they trigger protective immune responses. Read more

Applying molecular tools for the detection of zoonotic helminths in eastern Africa

Diagnostics for many helminth diseases currently rely on low sensitivity, low throughput, microscopic methods. New diagnostic assays, targeting either proteins, antibodies, or DNA, represent medium throughput approaches with improved sensitivity for the detection of active disease. Read more

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.

Starlings as vectors and reservoirs of disease

Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are a widespread avian species found in close association with human developments and agriculture. In the UK, the majority of starlings are resident all year round and their breeding season takes place from March to April. Read more
