PhD position in theoretical physics/biophysics: how parasites hijack immune cells

Parasites like Toxoplasma gondii hijack immune cells of the infected host and employ them as shuttle for migration. Moreover, parasites even replicate within immune cells, thus turning them into “Trojan horses”. Read more

EASTBIO Are chronic infection stage trypanosomes different to acute stage forms?

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. This causes losses of several billion dollars in agricultural productivity in this region each year. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

Cell biology of influenza A virus infections: Mechanistic research at the interface of virus entry and host proteins and processes.

Viruses are obligatory parasites that hijack cellular functions to survive. Virus entry - the steps before viral replication begins -is regulated by multitude of host proteins and processes that interact with the incoming virus. Read more

EASTBIO Ubiquitin dynamics during host-pathogen interaction

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Protein ubiquitination is a key regulatory process that controls many aspects of eukaryotic life. Both free living and pathogenic organisms employ ubiquitination mediated protein networks to adapt to their environment. Read more

EASTBIO Dynamics of mitochondrial genome complexity in trypanosomes

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Human and livestock diseases caused by trypanosomatid parasites threaten health and livelihood of millions of people in Africa, South America and Asia. Read more

Helminth products as macrophage “trainers”: a novel therapeutic tool for the treatment of immune mediated diseases

The innate immune system can display characteristics of immunological memory. This phenomenon, termed “trained immunity”, refers to the long-term functional reprogramming of innate immune cells after the encounter with infectious or non-infectious agents that influences their capacity to respond to a secondary stimulus.
