  Microplastics as a Vector for Micropollutants in Aquatic Environments
  Dr C Pestana, Prof L Lawton, Prof C Moffat
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Any plastic particle that measures less than 5 mm in all dimensions is considered to be a microplastic.
  Are ticks a potential vector for Borna disease virus?
  Prof S Tasker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Borna disease virus (BDV) has a broad host range including cats and dogs. In cats BDV causes a non-suppurative. meningoencephalomyelitis called “staggering disease”.
  Trait-based approaches for predicting mosquito distributions under environmental change
  Dr B Purse, Prof A Callaghan, Dr S White, Dr W Wint
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Structure and Function of Innate Immune Signalling in Mosquito Vectors
  Research Group: Dr M Gangloff
  Dr M Gangloff
Applications accepted all year round
Over the course of a long evolutionary history vector-borne pathogens have developed mechanisms to successfully disrupt natural defences in both their mammalian hosts and insect vectors in order to survive and establish infection.
  Understanding signalling networks during malaria parasite infection and transmission
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr N Philip
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Malaria threatens around 400 million people globally and results in over 0.5 million deaths annually, thereby continuing to be a major public health problem.
  The development of new peptide and peptoid based treatments for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs)
  Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a significant global health burden, affecting approximately one-sixth of the world’s population.
  Expressing the key photoprotective protein of diatom algae, LHCX1, in higher plants
  Prof A Ruban, Dr G Hanke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Significance and timeliness. Photosynthetic organisms face rapid fluctuations in light intensity. High light is harmful, resulting in reduction in plant productivity [1].
  NIR Light-triggered delivery of viral vectors for gene therapies
  Dr S Jones
Applications accepted all year round
This project looks to develop a platform technology that utilises external stimuli, such as light for the triggered polymer un-coating of viral vectors for in-vivo targeted delivery.
  Unravelling molecular mechanism of atypical cell division in malaria parasite towards identifying novel intervention strategies
  Dr R Tewari
Applications accepted all year round
Plasmodium, the causative agent of malaria, is the most fatal of vector borne protozoan parasites transmitted by infected female mosquitoes.
  Development of Gene Therapy and Gene Editing for Lung Disorders: the translation of new gene therapies to the clinic, including the development of new vectors, and evaluation in animal models of disease.
  Dr D Gill, Dr S Hyde
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
The Gene Medicine Research Group is based in the John Radcliffe Hospital and is focused on the development of new gene therapeutics for lung diesases.
