  PhD in T-cell Immunology - Developing a vaccine against Mycobacterium tuberculosis by manipulating Killer T-cell activity.
  Prof A Sewell
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and long-term aim. Our immune system protects us from infectious diseases as well as many forms of cancer. T cells orchestrate this system.
  The impact of the MBL pathway on the outcome of infection with representative mycobacterial strains of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex
  Dr C Hölscher, Prof S Niemann
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent which are strains of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (Mtbc).
  Influence of HIV-1 opsonization on APC functions with regard to persistence of the virus and opportunistic pathogens, such as Mycobacteria spp. within relevant human 3D models
  Prof D Wilflingseder, Prof S Niemann
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV-1 and Mycobacterium tuberculosis represent detrimental co-epidemics worldwide, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, and co-infection accelerates progression of both diseases.
  (MRC DTP) Design and synthesis of new antivirulence drugs for treatment of tuberculosis
  Dr L Tabernero, Dr S Butterworth, Prof D Procter
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major health problem that affects billions of people worldwide and the emergence of severe anti microbial resistance (AMR) to current antibiotics is now the main challenge to eradicate the disease.
  The CRISPR system of the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Prof M F White
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CRISPR is a prokaryotic adaptive immune system, allowing detection and degradation of invading viruses. For the public and much of the scientific community, CRISPR is now synonymous with the minimal Class 2 systems Cas9 and Cas12.
  Structure, Function and Biogenesis of the Mycobacterial Cell Wall
  Prof G Besra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been no significant decrease in worldwide mortality due to tuberculosis (TB) since before the time of Koch; the advent of sanatoria and chemotherapy, which drastically reduced TB in the more developed countries, has had no profound effect on the global problem.
  Functional and structural characterization of a putative atypical kinase in Mycobacteria
  Dr B Tefsen, Dr D Ruiz, Dr M Horsburgh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB), caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), is a major burden for global healthcare. Increasing multi-drug resistance in Mtb makes treatment of TB harder every year.
  Epidemics, marketing and opinion setting - competitive and collaborative spreading processes
  Prof D Saad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epidemic spreading has existed as long as life itself. Alongside their impact on community health, spreading processes became a modelling tool for opinion-setting, information dissemination and marketing on social and information networks.
  Using viral vectors to generate killer cells for immunotherapy against cancer and pathogens
  Dr E Wang, Dr M Heurich-Sevcenco
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ‘GW4 BioMed MRC DTP’ is awarding up to 18 studentships with an October 2020 start date, aligned with the themes of Infection, Immunity and Repair; Neuroscience and Mental Health; and Population Health.
  Development of immunoassays for specific classical and lectin pathway activation markers
  Prof Z Prohaszka, Prof R Würzner
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections and various immune-inflammation mediated conditions are characterized by the activation of the complement system. Antibodies (immune complexes) activate the classical pathway whereas repetitive carbohydrate structures give rise to the initiation of the lectin pathway.
