Harnessing the social transmission of microbiota to improve health and immunity

Commercial partner: . Reckitt UK. , Slough. Social transmission of disease-causing microbes has long been recognised, and person-to-person social contact has recently attracted much negative societal attention for its role in spreading disadvantageous microbes during the COVID19 pandemic.

EASTBIO: Establishing drivers for the generation and transmission of antimicrobial resistance in the food chain

  Research Group: Infection Medicine
Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. Pathogenic microorganisms pose a significant threat to food security and in the spread of infectious diseases, particularly where the transmission of antibiotic resistant organisms (ARO) remains a critical concern1. Read more

EASTBIO: Resources, risk, and ‘roaches: How changing resource distribution can influence the risk of disease transmission in cockroaches

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. As the human population expands and consumes more natural resources we come in ever greater contact with wild and urbanised animals. Read more

The impact of resources on parasite transmission in wildlife communities

Habitat modification has profound effects on ecosystems, altering the quantity and distribution of resources in the environment. One overlooked way that changes in environmental resources impact biodiversity is through effects on the parasites circulating within those communities. Read more

MScR: Effects of age on disease defence strategies in ants

Group living offers favourable conditions for the spread of infectious diseases, because high population densities and frequent social contacts facilitate pathogen transmission. Read more

Multi-scale evolutionary dynamics of mosquito viruses

This project is part of the. DPhil in Biology at the University of Oxford. Viruses with RNA genomes like dengue, Zika, polio and vesicular stomatitis virus have the potential to evolve rapidly, over similar timescales to transmission, due to the lack of a proof-reading polymerase (e.g. Read more
