  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.
  The development of new peptide and peptoid based treatments for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs)
  Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a significant global health burden, affecting approximately one-sixth of the world’s population.
  Experimental Evolution of Endosymbiosis
  Dr H Hendrickson, Dr E Ostrowski
Applications accepted all year round
Complex eukaryotic life began when one free-living cell gave up independence and partnered with another. A major question in evolution concerns how such partnerships are able to form and stabilise.
  Targeting stress activated MAPK pathways in eukaryotic pathogens
  Prof J Quinn
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Candida albicans is a major fungal pathogen of humans causing over 400,000 deaths per annum. Systemic Candida infections are difficult to treat as current anti-fungal drugs are limited and cause undesirable side-effects.
  4 Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme: Using genomics to better understand the Cryptosporidium host-pathogen relationship
  Dr M Pawlowic
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Diarrheal disease is responsible for approximately 10% of the deaths of children under the age of five, and Cryptosporidium is second leading cause.
  An ‘Evolve and Resequencing’ based dissection of developmental competence in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Prof K Matthews
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease, ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. These protozoan parasites use ‘quorum sensing’ in their host bloodstream to control the production of an arrested developmental form needed for transmission to their vector, the tsetse fly.
  Unravelling molecular mechanism of atypical cell division in malaria parasite towards identifying novel intervention strategies
  Dr R Tewari
Applications accepted all year round
Plasmodium, the causative agent of malaria, is the most fatal of vector borne protozoan parasites transmitted by infected female mosquitoes.
  Drug discovery and Chemical-Biology Approaches Against Parasites that cause Neglected Tropical Diseases.
  Dr T Smith
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
This proposal is aimed at students wanting to work at the interface of chemistry and biology.
  Developing next-generation technology touching life physics tools to tackle debilitating infections and cancers
  Prof M Leake, Dr I Hitchcock, Prof J Mottram
Applications accepted all year round
Our knowledge of many debilitating human diseases is limited by technology. conventional approaches fail to render the quantitative details needed to address key mechanistic questions.
