Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks
  Dr A Antonysunil
Applications accepted all year round

The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.

  Tissue antigen and immune cell turnover in health and disease
  Dr R Busch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy immune system is in a state of restful homeostasis. Activation of the immune system, whether to fight infections or during immune-mediated diseases, involves substantial changes in the rates at which immune cells and proteins are produced and destroyed (turnover).
