EASTBIO Understanding the impact of host sex on viral infection

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Infectious disease dynamics depend strongly on the ability of individuals to control the pathogen and to transmit it to others. Sex is known to have a large impact on pathogen control, but much less is known about the effect of host sex on disease transmission. Read more

EASTBIO What makes a leaf: defining the genetic toolkit that underpins leaf development

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In nature there is a remarkable diversity in organ shape which has captured the imagination of people throughout history. The leaves of plants are one of the most diverse and characteristic organs in nature and are hypothesised to form the basis of all floral organs too. Read more

EASTBIO The role of host membrane protein interactions in herpesvirus nuclear egress and SARS-CoV-2 double membrane vesicle formation

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
    Viruses have many critical interactions with host cell membranes that mostly take advantage of host cell proteins. The Schirmer and Graham labs have 2 lines of investigation involving virus interactions with host cell membrane proteins that could be individually or jointly carried further in this PhD project. .

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

Mechanobiology of the gut microbiota

The Persat lab (. p-lab.science. ) investigates how mechanical forces regulate the physiology of bacteria, both pathogens and from the microbiota, and how this impacts the process of host colonization. Read more

PhD student position available in macronutrition and signaling regulated RNA metabolism

PhD student position available in macronutrition and signaling  regulated RNA metabolism. The main research focus of our laboratory is to understand the participation of RNA processing in the regulation of energy metabolism in the context of obesity and diabetes. . Read more

EASTBIO Shaping tissues by pulsed contractions - studying how cells change shape during morphogenesis

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. To shape tissues and organs, cells need to exert forces on their neighbours and respond to them. Individual cells can generate forces with their actin cytoskeleton. Read more

EASTBIO Investigating how a biological rhythm allows cells to adapt to change

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Biological rhythms are a fundamental property of life, and even single cells can generate both cell cycles and circadian oscillations. Read more

EASTBIO Phospho-regulation of meiosis

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Genes must be passed on accurately from cell to cell and from parents to children. Failure to do so can be a cause or contributing factor in human illnesses, such as cancer or reproductive problems/congenital conditions. Read more

EASTBIO Do circadian rhythms in ion concentrations drive cellular metabolic rhythms?

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In the living cell, virtually nothing stays the same over the day/night cycle. Endogenous ~24h rhythms are driven by a biological timekeeping system, the circadian clock, that dynamically regulates nearly all biological processes to match Earth's environmental cycle. Read more

EASTBIO: How cells prevent errors in chromosome inheritance during cell division

Human cells store their genetic information in 46 chromosomes. To maintain this vital genetic information, a complete set of chromosomes must be inherited precisely by each daughter cell after cell division. Read more

EASTBIO: Your Best Face Forward - how cereals regulate their epidermal surfaces

Plants living on land face brutal conditions with threats from pests, dehydration and temperature extremes. To survive and thrive on land, plants evolved a specialised surface, sealed by a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .

EASTBIO Bone biomineralisation

This project will investigate the fundamental mechanisms which regulate bone mineralisation through extracellular vesicles. A deeper understanding of this process will expose new therapeutic targets for the treatment of bone disorders. Read more
