  Cryptosporidium movement in water: impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  Spatial epidemiology in sub-Saharan African wildlife: schistosomes of Cape Buffalo
  Prof J Cable, Dr I-R Russo, Prof M Bruford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Animal distributions, including disease vectors and parasites, are influenced by environmental features, which can either facilitate or restrict their movement across the landscape.
  Production and assessment of antiviral prophylactic properties of natural biomolecules against avian influenza and Newcastle disease viruses affecting poultry production
  Dr M Iqbal, Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Poultry infected with avian influenza viruses and/or Newcastle disease viruses suffer severe morbidity and mortality which can gravely impact poultry production.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites
  Dr S Perkins, Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In terms of numbers of cells, we are more bacteria than we are human, and the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our gut (our ‘microbiota’) are vital for biological processes and affect many aspects of health.
  Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. World class teaching facilities with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research and the generation of impact.
  Using stem cell-derived “mini-guts” to determine the role of the microbiota in resistance to Cryptosporidium infection in cattle
  Dr J Coombes
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cryptosporidium parvum causes acute diarrhoea in young calves, which can be fatal. Infection is common, and carries significant economic and welfare costs.
  Investigating novel treatments for sepsis by understanding the pathogenesis of invasive infection
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
We have recently discovered that bacteria, previously considered extracellular pathogens replicate within a subset of macrophages before causing invasive infection (Ercoli et al., Nature Microbiology 2018).
  Iron acquisition using host lactoferrin by the bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof J Ketley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the main cause of bacterial food-borne disease in the UK and is a global public health priority. Infection and transmission are usually linked with contaminated food or water, with chicken being a major source.
