  Are ticks a potential vector for Borna disease virus?
  Prof S Tasker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Borna disease virus (BDV) has a broad host range including cats and dogs. In cats BDV causes a non-suppurative. meningoencephalomyelitis called “staggering disease”.
  Impact of Light Pollution on Aquatic Invertebrates
  Dr H Wijnen, Dr A Ford
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale (max 200 words). Light pollution is a growing ecological problem with known impacts for wildlife populations and communities [3].
  Impact of Light Pollution on Aquatic Invertebrates
  Dr H Wijnen, Dr A Ford
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Light pollution is a growing ecological problem with known impacts for wildlife populations and communities [3].
  Improving infant health through molecular characterisation and intervention of HIV coinfection effects on breastmilk secretion
  Dr T Ward, Prof S Filteau, Prof U Gompels
Application Deadline: 13 January 2019
HIV-infected women frequently have Epstein-Barr virus and Human cytomegalovirus coinfections. When transmitted in breastmilk, these viruses cause significant infant morbidity and development effects.
  Detection of infectious diseases in febrile patients in field studies in Gabon using molecular assays including next generation diagnostics
  Dr H M Staines, Dr D Allen
Application Deadline: 13 January 2019
A range of infectious diseases in tropical regions cause similar symptoms, fever in particular, in presenting patients, including malaria, Ebola and those caused by arboviruses such as Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya viruses.
  The effect of substrate stiffness on cardiac performance
  Dr L Fabritz, Dr K Gehmlich
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The stiffness of the human myocardium increases as part of the ageing process. This can lead to ventricular pathologies such as heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), especially in elderly in the presence of co-morbidities.
  MRes in Investigating the effect of ‘vaping’ flavouring fluids on lung epithelial cells and the fresh water crustacean Daphnia magna - Project ID SAS0037
  Dr S Vass, Dr S Rueckert
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The use of electronic cigarettes or ‘vaping’ devices has dramatically increased in recent years. The number of users in the UK was estimated to be 2.9 million in 2016 (ASH, 2017).
  A comprehensively analysis of microorganisms and viruses from ancient samples using minion sequencing techniques
  Prof M Marz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In current metagenomic samples we are able to assign only up to 10% of the microorganisms, most of them being bacteria. This number drops significantly when investigating additionally viruses in especially ancient samples.
  Characterising mechanisms that control Marek's Disease Virus genome release from telomeres during reactivation from latency
  Dr N J Royle, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Infection by Marek’s Disease Virus (MDV) is followed by latency, T-cell lymphomas and reactivation. It has significant deleterious effects on chicken health and welfare, with an annual estimated loss close to $2 billion to the global poultry meat and egg production industries.
  Defining the metabolic determinants of intestinal stem cell homeostasis
  Dr A Rufini, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The intestine is the fastest renewing organ. This ability is enabled by the presence of fast proliferating intestinal stem cells (ISCs) that reside in the crypts of Lieberkühn at the base of the intestinal villi.
