  Bug-beats: using wing beat patterns for automated detection of mosquitoes
  Prof J Logan, Prof R Bomphrey
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases are a major challenge for human health, affecting 700 million people every year and resulting in over one million deaths.
  Microplastics as a Vector for Micropollutants in Aquatic Environments
  Dr C Pestana, Prof L Lawton, Prof C Moffat
Application Deadline: 10 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”.
  How do disease vector populations respond to climate change? NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S English, Dr J Bridle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
One of the major concerns about climate change is how it will influence future distribution of important disease vectors. Such effects are likely to be significant – insects are highly sensitive to temperature for vital rates – yet difficult to predict or to generalise across species.
  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.
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
  Dr M Soloviev, Prof X Yun Xu
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
The scientific motivation behind this project is to generate remotely controlled molecularly defined systems capable of changing their physical or molecular properties in response to external stimuli.
  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.
