Towards new drugs and diagnostics for tuberculosis: Elucidating and exploiting essential pathways in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogen

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is the leading cause of death worldwide from a single bacterial pathogen killing more people than HIV and malaria combined. Read more

Understanding the role of stress granules in tuberculosis as a route towards novel therapeutics (Ref FHMS - FF - 20 BIO)

The assembly of membraneless organelles is emerging as a fundamental paradigm for many cellular functions. Among these, stress granules play a central role in health and disease by concentrating proteins and RNAs, driving adaption to stressful conditions including during disease. Read more

Exploring a unique predator-prey relationship to uncover vulnerabilities in tuberculosis

Diseases caused by mycobacteria account for more deaths than any other infectious agent in the world. Sadly, rates of drug resistant infections are increasing, at a time where our diagnostic capacity has been hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more

Identifying new drug targets within Mycobacterium tuberculosis

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death worldwide and reflects a serious global health challenge. This bacterial pathogen kills more people than malaria and HIV combined, and is increasingly developing resistance to many of the current front-line drugs. Read more

Molecular level understanding of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

Mycobacterium tuberculosis has evolved to survive and replicate inside macrophages. The project will investigate the molecular mechanisms underpinning adaptation to this specialised intracellular niche. Read more

Balancing Land management Solutions against future bovine Tuberculosis risks to cattle and deer

Badgers are an important source of Tuberculosis (TB) in cattle. Their numbers and distribution are likely to be influenced by changes in environmental land management (ELM) policies which address the needs to maintain food security, mitigate climate change and enhance biodiversity. Read more

EASTBIO: Environmental DNA approaches for the assessment of bovine tuberculosis in park and wild deer

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) infections in wild and park deer is a problem of increasing concern in Britain that could be further exacerbated by future changes in land use and management as a result of climate change and biodiversity loss. Read more

EASTBIO Investigating conserved bacterial virulence factors using novel three dimensional models of host-pathogen intereactions

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Bacterial pathogens have evolved a diverse range of strategies to infect, survive, and replicate within a host. Investigating these host-pathogen interactions can help us to understand both the mechanisms of pathogenesis and the responses of mammalian cells to foreign invaders. Read more

Treating bacterial infections using aldehydes

Mycobacteria is a large class of bacteria that includes a number of infamous human pathogens, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) and Mycobacterium leprae, the agents of tuberculosis (TB) and leprosy respectively. Read more

Elucidating and exploiting molecular mechanisms of bacterial natural product biosynthesis

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Natural product-based therapeutics are an essential part of modern medicine, and are also used widely in agriculture, e.g. as fungicides. Read more
