Applications accepted all year round
Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.
  The genomic basis of chiral variation and speciation in mirror-image snails
  Dr A Davison, Dr A MacColl
Applications accepted all year round
While our bodies are bilaterally symmetric on the outside, the internal organs exhibit consistent, directional asymmetries in their position or anatomy, such that left/right positional errors are an important class of human birth defect, and in later life, numerous diseases affect seemingly symmetric organs in a lateralised fashion.

  Dr A Davison, Dr W R A Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Slugs as pests destroy and spoil crop plants and cost the farming industry at least £100M a year in the UK, incurring the widespread use of toxic molluscicides.
  Ran GTPase as a potential novel therapeutic target in EMT transdifferentiation and breast cancer stem cell (BCSC) survival during metastatic development
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Prof R Morgan, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr M Isreb, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide. Accumulating evidence suggests that local disease recurrence and metastatic lesions, the major causes of patient mortality, are due to a subset of aggressive cells termed cancer stem cells (CSCs).
