  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.
