  Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites
  Dr S Perkins, Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In terms of numbers of cells, we are more bacteria than we are human, and the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our gut (our ‘microbiota’) are vital for biological processes and affect many aspects of health.
  Using biochemical and evolutionary approaches to characterise novel enzymes as possible drug targets in apicomplexan parasites of economically important livestock
  Dr PW Denny
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Eukaryotic protozoan parasites cause a range of serious and wide-spread infectious diseases in both humans and domestic animals, which frequently serve as reservoirs for infection.
  Balancing immunity in the face of variable nutritional resources and natural infection in a wild rodent
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Parasite infections and resource scarcity are common threats to the wellbeing of wild populations and domestic animals. Chronic helminth infections in particular compete with their hosts for nutritional resources, and are a global cause of productivity loss in livestock, estimated at £1.2 billion.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Investigating the long-term effects of chronic radiation exposure on cellular mechanisms
  Dr J Lim, Prof D Copplestone, Prof N Beresford
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Despite decades of research into radiation effects on wildlife, controversy remains concerning the dose rate at which significant impacts occur for different types of organisms1.
