  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Employing molecular virology to investigate hepatitis E virus replication (fully-funded PhD)
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr M.R. Herod, Prof M Harris
Application Deadline: 27 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis E virus (HEV), is a major causative agent of acute, severe hepatitis. The infection can also be chronic, particular in immunocompromised people, and fatal in pregnant women or those with existing liver diseases.
  Epidemiological study of ageing populations affected by blood borne viruses and associated health risk behaviours : analysis of linked databases
  Prof S Hutchinson, Dr H Innes, Dr A Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19006. Scotland has a track record in undertaking record-linkage studies to inform public health policy and practice.
  Evaluation of interventions to address hepatitis C virus infection among children born to mothers with a history of injecting drug use in Scotland
  Prof S Hutchinson, Dr N Palmateer
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

REF SHLS-20002 Hutchinson. There are an estimated 41,000 to 59,000 children of problem drug using parents in Scotland, representing about 4-5% of children aged under 16.
  Personalised anti-viral immunotherapies for hepatitis B and C virus-associated hepatocellular carcinoma
  Dr A Samson, Dr S Griffin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a cancer of hepatocytes commonly caused by hepatitis B and C virus (HBV/HCV) infections. Only 12% of HCC patients survive for five-years, due to late diagnosis and inadequate non-personalised therapies.
  Transmission of HEV: risk from the environment and waste water in Scotland
  Dr C Hunter, Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-027. In Scotland, the number of Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are increasing yearly, since 2011 laboratory confirmed cases have increased 15-fold.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
  Migration, sexual and gender-based violence and access to water and sanitation
  Research Group: The Urban Institute
  Dr G Netto
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mass displacement of people poses formidable challenges for the management of water and sanitation in refugee camps. Water-borne disease outbreaks (cholera, bloody diarrhoea, typhoid, and hepatitis E) have been a major concern.
  Nanoparticles for elimination of viruses spreading through air, water and bodily fluids
  Dr J Weber
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed PhD project addresses the problem of the threat of viruses in the environment to the public.
  Regulation of intestinal immune responses to commensal bacteria by innate lymphoid cells
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal bacteria present in the gastrointestinal tract provide beneficial roles for the host, such as supporting nutrient metabolism.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  Centrosome Amplification and Cancer
  Dr Y Ching
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrosome, which is the microtubule-organising center (MTOC) in the cell, plays a critical role in determining the motility, polarity and division of cell.
