  Exploring molecular mechanisms of drug resistance and pathogenicity in the filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
  Dr M Bromley, Prof P Bowyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A. fumigatus is the primary etiological agent of invasive aspergillosis, a disease that primarily affects individuals who are immunocompromised, and causes 200k life threatening infections annually.
  Identification of colistin resistant gene, mcr-1, in clinical isolated Enterobacteriaceae and characterisation of pathogenicity and virulence of mcr-1 harboured bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Chang, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, infectious disease accounts for more than 13 million deaths a year and is one of the main causes of death around the world, predominantly in developing countries.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Strain wars and the evolution of opportunistic pathogens
  Prof S Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Genetic Architecture of Inherited Cardiomyopathy
  Prof M Farrall, Dr AG Goel, Prof H Watkins
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Studying genetic variation in cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease across the entire allele frequency spectrum in order to identify causative genes and susceptibility loci.
  Influence of HIV-1 opsonization on APC functions with regard to persistence of the virus and opportunistic pathogens, such as Mycobacteria spp. within relevant human 3D models
  Prof D Wilflingseder, Prof S Niemann
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV-1 and Mycobacterium tuberculosis represent detrimental co-epidemics worldwide, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, and co-infection accelerates progression of both diseases.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
