  Stressing the superbug. Using bacterial stress sensors to target antimicrobial resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
  Dr R Corrigan, Prof S Renshaw
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
The “superbug”, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major threat to global health. Bacteria can sense external stresses such as nutrient deprivation, which promotes antimicrobial tolerance and drives chronic infections.
  Staphylococcus aureus Infection Dynamics
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
S. aureus is a major human pathogen of increasing importance due to the spread of antibiotic resistance. It can cause a wide range of diseases, from superficial skin infections to life threatening endocarditis and septicaemia.
  Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and A*STAR PhD Studentship: Interactions between skin microbes and keratinocytes in individuals of Bangladeshi and Singapore-Chinese ethnicity with severe atopic eczema
  Prof E O'Toole
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary University of London and A*STAR PhD Studentship. Interactions between skin microbes and keratinocytes in individuals of Bangladeshi and Singapore-Chinese ethnicity with severe atopic eczema.
  Bacterial survival in the host and in the environment is promoted by horizontal gene transfer of additional metal resistance genes
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof P W Andrew
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Excess copper is highly toxic and forms part of the host innate immune system’s antibacterial arsenal, accumulating at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
  Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round
Antibiotics make possible the treatment and cure of life-threatening bacterial infections. Since their introduction in the middle years of the 20th Century, they have added ~10 years to the human lifespan, and have become a cornerstone of modern medicine.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
