  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Targeting pathogen subversion of cellular ageing to combat antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever
  Dr D Humphreys, Prof S Baker, Dr T Darton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

- Antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever is fuelled by chronic Salmonella carriage. The world faces epidemics of untreatable typhoid fever caused by antimicrobial-resistant strains of Salmonella Typhi (~27 million cases/year).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr V See, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life-threatening invasive fungal infection is a major health problem in the immunocompromised, and emerging drug resistance is a major threat to global health.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing a whipworm vaccine composed of virus-like particles expressing Trichuris T cell epitopes
  Prof K Else, Prof J P Derrick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination is one of the greatest advances in global health; however most successful vaccines have been made empirically. We still have little insight into how many vaccines work and the mechanisms by which they trigger protective immune responses.

The developing world is experiencing a dramatic demographic change. Increased life expectancy combined with decreasing fertility has led to rapidly ageing populations.
  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.
  Identification of novel glucose-dependent alterations responsible for vascular dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes.
  Prof Tim Palmer, Dr R Sturmey
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes is a growing global healthcare problem. The majority of people living with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), characterised by a resistance of the body to the action of insulin.
  Analysis of the role of microRNAs in the regulation of NF-kappaB dynamics and function
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
