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

Identify novel approaches to combat multi drug resistant pathogens

Our research is focused on recalcitrant ESKAPE (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, andEnterobacter species) pathogens; especially hard-to-treat clinical isolates involved in multidrug resistance, biofilm infections and persistence.

Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response. Read more

Unlocking immune cells with tick-borne pathogens

In this project we will use tick-borne pathogenic bacteria as a molecular tool-kit for unlocking immune cells. These discoveries will help us combat tick-borne disease and provide a basis for manipulating immune cells, impacting on a wide range of diseases. Read more

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

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

Brain-specific immune responses to fungal pathogens

We are seeking a talented and motivated student with a passion for research in immunology, infectious disease and medical mycology to join the Fungal Infection Group led by Dr Rebecca Drummond (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/profiles/immunology-immunotherapy/drummond-rebecca.aspx). Read more
