  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.

  Dr G Waiter, Dr C McNeil, Dr A Sneddon
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the role of iron in brain ageing and provide insight into its influence on neurodegeneration and cognitive decline.
  The role of iron deficiency, micronutrient supplements and the host microbiome among infants in Peru: understanding the nutritional double burden
  Dr E Rousham, Dr O Markey
Application Deadline: 24 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity to work on infant nutrition and global health alongside leading UK and Peruvian investigators. Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014).
