  Genome scale evolution of biofilm contained Klebsiella pneumoniae in response to sub-lethal antibacterial stress exposure - development of novel biomarkers for near-patient testing
  Prof S Fanning, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Klebsiella pneumoniae is an opportunistic pathogenic bacterium found in several niches, being often encountered in a biofilm.
  How does biodiversity contribute to multiple forms of stability in stressed marine invertebrate communities?
  Prof M Emmerson, Dr S Helyar, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. We now know that biodiversity is important because different species simultaneously contribute to multiple ecosystem processes through time and space (Gamfeldt et al.
  How does Clostridium difficile control the gut microbiome? Molecular dissection of nutrient control strategies
  Prof G McMullan, Dr B Graham, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Clostridium difficile is a Gram positive, spore forming, anaerobic bacterium that is the main cause of hospital-acquired and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea.
  Influence of farm hygiene standards and management practices on Johne’s disease progression in selected NI dairy herds
  Prof I Grant, Prof N O'Connell
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Johne’s disease is present in dairy herds in Northern Ireland. However, the true herd prevalence is uncertain, and probably underestimated, because currently used diagnostic tests lack sensitivity.
  Innovative Diagnostics for Helminth Parasite Infections
  Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Helminth (worm) parasites cause ill health and poor productivity in farm animals worldwide. Control relies largely on anthelmintic drugs, either applied en masse to entire herds based on perceived infection risk, or guided by treatment decisions made using sub-optimal diagnostic tests.
  Investigating how the levels of queuine, a novel micronutrient, are associated with human ageing and brain health
  Dr B Green, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Queuine is the only micronutrient that directly affects translation efficiency and accuracy in eukaryotes, with roles in metabolism and healthy-aging of the brain.
  Investigation and exploration of health and therapeutic benefits of plant-derived secondary metabolites
  Dr C Situ, Prof J Bengoechea
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Plants and their products have revolutionarily shaped human development throughout history. The traditional plant-based medicine continues to play an essential role in the treatment of disease and in healthcare systems in many parts the world.
  Low-cost and rapid paper-based microfluidics for the detection of irradiated foods
  Dr C Cao, Prof C Elliott
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Irradiations have been exploited as a preservation technique to eliminate indigenous microflora, thereby extending shelf-life of foods.
  Mast cell dysregulation? Understanding the development of mastocytosis
  Dr C Graham, Dr B Graham, Prof C Creevey
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Mastocytosis is a myeloproliferative disease characterised by the accumulation of neoplastic mast cells in one or several organs that can result in organ failure.
  Microbial interactions in unique chemosynthetic ecosystems –an integrated ‘Omic approach
  Dr D Kumaresan, Prof J Mcgrath, Dr R Doherty
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Despite the lack of photosynthetically-fixed carbon, the Movile Cave ecosystem hosts a diverse range of invertebrates.
  MicroRNAs in the Pathogenesis Adverse Cardiomyocyte and Endothelial Cell Remodelling in Insulin Resistance
  Dr Q Su, Dr D Grieve
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Lipogenic diets-induced diabetes increases risk of cardiac stress and vascular dysfunction. Recent studies have established the pivotal role of non-coding microRNAs in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
  Mosquito control using native predators and other novel environmentally friendly methodologies
  Prof J Dick, Dr D Jennings
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Mosquitoes cause unparalleled mortality in human/animal populations through vectoring of pathogens/parasites. Biological control of mosquitoes has often failed due to use of exotic species agents and lack of effective research on complex species interactions.
  Optimising behaviour change initiatives for food waste prevention
  Prof A Longo, Prof G Hutchinson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Annually, an estimated 1.3 billion tonnes of food for human consumption is wasted worldwide, or one third of total food production.
  Quantifying the effects of environmental change using multi-level phylogenetically controlled meta-analyses
  Dr H Kunc, Dr D Jennings
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Anthropogenically driven environmental changes affect our planet at an unprecedented scale and are considered to be a key threat to a sustainable future.
  Rewiring of host cell protein complexes by pathogen effectors - mass spectrometry-based methods and applications in infection biology
  Dr B Collins, Prof J Bengoechea, Dr G Schroeder
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Bacterial pathogens, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila, residing inside host immune cells such as macrophages, must subvert host cell defences in order to avoid destruction.
