  Creating a systematic mycobacterial stress-response map
  Dr M Banzhaf
Applications accepted all year round
Bacterial chemical-genomics screens can quantify the impact of each gene on the fitness of the organism subjected to a large number of chemical/environmental perturbations.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Non-adherence in chronic conditions (initially tuberculosis): a quantitative, methodological, approach
  Research Group: Centre for Global Health Research
  Dr H Stagg
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. Non-adherence to prescribed medications is an international problem with major implications.1 It is, however, frequently unrecognised.
  Serine/threonine protein kinase mediated regulation of protein secretion in mycobacteria
  Dr G Mukamolova, Dr H O'Hare
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Tuberculosis remains a major global threat as it affects humans and production animals. Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agents of tuberculosis in human and animals, are highly successful pathogens which secrete multiple virulence factors.
  Application of advanced spectroscopic techniques to monitor real-time transformations in aerosolized bovine tuberculosis bacteria
  Dr N Garton, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), a devastating disease affecting global cattle populations.
  Structure, Function and Biogenesis of the Mycobacterial Cell Wall
  Prof G Besra
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Promoting Use and Non-Use: Medicines for TB and other Bacteria in an Era of AMR
  Dr J Dixon, Prof M Gorsky
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The containment of resistance in tuberculosis has historically been premised on the very tight control of TB medicines, yet in many countries such as South Africa this has been unsuccessful.
  Molecular characterisation of novel pathways for cell envelope protein localisation in mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes (ref: SF18/APP/Sutcliffe)
  Prof I Sutcliffe
Applications accepted all year round
Mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes are of vital economic and medical importance. They include pathogenic species including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rhodococcus equi as well as industrially important organisms.
  How do antibiotic-producing bacteria decide when to synthesise antibiotics, and how much to make?
  Dr H O'Hare, Dr G Mukamolova
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Actinobacteria are well-known as producers of bioactive secondary metabolites including antibiotics, insecticides and immunosuppressants.
  Engineering Actinobacteria to enhance natural product biosynthesis
  Dr H O'Hare
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The Actinobacteria are important producers of approved drugs (>$1 billion dollars in 2016) but low yields of most natural products are a significant barrier to drug discovery, development and commercialisation.
  Functional and mechanistic analysis of mRNA localisation and its role in polarised growth for S. cerevisiae and the pathogenic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus.
  Prof M Ashe, Prof N Read, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Life threatening fungal diseases annually kill more people than malaria, tuberculosis or breast cancer and Aspergillus fumigatus is the most important human pathogenic filamentous fungus.
