Showing 1 to 10 of 25
  Identifying nutrient and pesticide modulation of ion channels with Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  Dr R Barrett-Jolley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Many pesticides and food nutrients that animals (including people) are exposed to can have subtle, but potentially dangerous toxic effects by interactions with ion channels.
  Post-transcriptional gene regulation during chondrogenesis
  Dr S Tew
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Healthy cartilage in our joints is essential for us to maintain an active life into old age. The cells that maintain cartilage are called chondrocytes and have a specialised phenotype that is initiated during development and then maintained throughout our lives.
  Cryptosporidium parvum – B-cells as a route to control
  Dr R Flynn
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cryptosporidium parvum infection presents a major threat to calf health and survival as a global cause of enteric disease. Calves under the age of 2 months are 41 times more likely to shed oocysts in comparison with animals aged 4 months or above.
  Early development of the avian mucosal immune system
  Prof P Wigley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Chickens are the most frequently reared livestock species in the world. In modern commercial production control of infectious diseases through vaccination and the use of microbial-based therapies such as probiotics are critical to protect the flocks.
  Identification of drug resistance genes in Fasciola hepatica using a combined in vitro phenotyping and pooled genotyping approach
  Dr J Hodgkinson
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Fasciola hepatica, the common liver fluke is a major cause of disease and production loss in sheep and cattle in the UK and changes in farming practices and climate are leading to increased prevalence and movement of infection into new areas of the UK.
  Novel approaches for defining the Gram negative mobile antimicrobial resistance reservoir in poultry farming environments under varying antimicrobial selective pressure
  Prof N Williams
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is an increasing problem in both human and veterinary medicine. Many bacteria have now acquired mechanisms of resistance to antimicrobials, which can spread to other bacteria.
  Patterns of antimicrobial use and resistance in a cohort of UK dairy farms
  Dr S Latham
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is an increasing problem in both human and veterinary medicine. Many bacteria have now acquired mechanisms of resistance to antimicrobials, which can spread to other bacteria.
  Phage WO as a vehicle to transform Wolbachia, a symbiont of major crop pests
  Dr B Makepeace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Wolbachia, an obligate intracellular bacterium, is the commonest animal symbiont on Earth. Certain strains have spread throughout arthropod populations worldwide, in part due to the reproductive manipulations they induce in their hosts.
  Understanding patterns of AMR selection and transmission between sheep and their environment
  Dr P Davies
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the key concerns to human and animal heath in the UK and globally. The role of farmed livestock in the selection and dissemination of AMR in the environment and the threat to human health is not fully known or understood.
  Adhesion force regulation as a mechanism of cell adaptation to tissue stiffness and composition in health and disease
  Dr I Barsukov
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cells have amazing ability to adapt to different conditions. They form complex multi-cellular tissues, differentiate and migrate.
