  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
  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: 20 January 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.
  Dissecting the neutralising antibody response to the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus to identify novel vaccine targets
  Prof R Owens, Dr S Graham, Dr J Grimes, Prof John Hammond
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is the most important infectious disease affecting the global pig industry.
  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.
  PhD studentship in Cellular Medicine – Strategies to reverse muscle wasting in chronic respiratory disease entities (RDF19/HLS/AS/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ageing is associated with skeletal muscle loss (sarcopenia), which results in limited strength and independence, as well as impaired metabolic health.
  Debugging Lung Disease: Applying mathematical modelling for a precision medicine approach to the Pulmonary Microbiome
  Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Supervisors. Professor Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova,College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  The impact of high resolution spatiotemporal environmental data on healthcare decision making at the hospital trust scale
  Dr J Vande Hey, Prof K Abrams
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is considerable evidence of the long term health impacts of sustained environmental exposures such as air pollution [1], and of short term health impacts of exposures such as extreme air pollution events [2] or temperatures [3].
  Experimental evolution of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in media replicating the conditions of the upper and lower airways
  Dr D Neill, Dr J Fothergill
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) is an important bacterial pathogen in people with cystic fibrosis and other chronic lung conditions. During early infection, Pa adapts to the environment of the respiratory tract, leading to long-lasting, difficult to treat infections.
