  BBSRC iCASE Student in Respiratory Immunology: investigating the role of exosomal microRNA in host-microbiota-viral interactions in the human respiratory mucosa
  Dr K Staples
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Lead Institute / Faculty. Faculty of Medicine. Main Supervisor. Dr Karl Staples. Other members of the supervisory team. Dr C. Mirella Spalluto, Prof Tom Wilkinson.
  Molecular mechanisms involved in the impact of air pollution on bacterial cells.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  AMPK deficiency and respiratory disease
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round
Regulation of breathing is critical to our capacity to accommodate deficits in oxygen availability and demand during, for example, sleep and ascent to altitude.
  Towards Clinical Imaging of Inhibition of Mucus Degradation in Respiratory Diseases
  Dr G Pavlovskaya, Prof A Knox
Application Deadline: 6 May 2019
Airway mucus plugs cause airway obstruction in patients with airways disease, such as cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis. Little is known about the effects of therapy on plug composition, airway ventilation or clinical outcome.
  Can a virus alert system for use in primary care be developed using routinely available respiratory virus data?
  Prof A Hay
Applications accepted all year round
Improving antibiotic stewardship is an international priority. Over 75% of all health service antibiotics are prescribed by GPs and nurses in primary care.
  Translational genomics- improving diagnostic return on genomic data in respiratory diseases.
  Prof D Baralle
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Lead Institute / Faculty. Faculty of Medicine (CES) / National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Southampton Biomedical Research Centre.
  The mechanism, function, and medically-relevant dysfunction of mitochondrial complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Prof J Hirst
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) catalyses the first step in the respiratory chain and oxidative phosphorylation. NADH oxidation and quinone reduction, coupled to proton translocation across the inner membrane.
  Repurposing drugs to treat antibiotic resistant pathogens
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Long-term respiratory infections can develop in people with conditions such as cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and bronchiectasis and can cause significant morbidity and worse clinical trajectory.
  Hydrogen sulphide as a treatment for respiratory disease.
  Dr R Roberts, Dr SPH Alexander
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated that hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is synthesised within the airways in the lungs. H2S synthesis in the airways occurs through activation of the enzymes cystathionine  lyase, cystathionine β synthase, and mercaptopyruvate sulphurtransferase (MPST).
  Novel interactions of anaesthetics on oxygen sensitive TASK K+ channels derived from rat chemoreceptor cells
  Prof K Buckler, Prof J Pandit
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Fully funded 3-year National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) PhD studentship to investigate the novel interactions of anaesthetics on oxygen sensitive TASK K+ channels derived from rat chemoreceptor cells (carotid body).
