  Resolving the spatiotemporal events controlling effector T cell responses during malaria (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr K Couper, Prof A MacDonald
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malaria remains one of the most important diseases in the world, responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and significant morbidity and suffering in many millions of people, each year.
  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing a whipworm vaccine composed of virus-like particles expressing Trichuris T cell epitopes
  Prof K Else, Prof J P Derrick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination is one of the greatest advances in global health; however most successful vaccines have been made empirically. We still have little insight into how many vaccines work and the mechanisms by which they trigger protective immune responses.
  Rhythms under your skin: Enhancing vaccine efficiency using a state-of-the-art dissolvable intradermal microneedle patch and harnessing the skin dendritic cell circadian clock
  Dr A Curtis, Dr R Donnelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination is the greatest success story of modern medicine with the WHO estimating 10 million deaths were prevented by vaccines between 2010 and 2015.
  Identification of key determinants affecting the quality of human Cancer specific cytotoxic T cells
  Prof T Dong
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective of my group’s research is to focus on the functional aspects of the antigen specific T cells and study the factors affecting Cytotoxic T cells in controlling cancer development.

  Metabolic control of T cell function
  Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current research interests in Sarah Dimeloe’s lab focus on the metabolism and interlinked immune function of T lymphocytes in health and disease.
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
  Exploring The Therapeutic Window of CAR-T Cell Therapy
  Dr M Chapman, Dr J Thaventhiran
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Immunotherapy, including chimeric antigen receptor-T cells (CAR-T cells) and checkpoint inhibition, is a powerful new class of cancer treatment.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
