  Are ticks a potential vector for Borna disease virus?
  Prof S Tasker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Borna disease virus (BDV) has a broad host range including cats and dogs. In cats BDV causes a non-suppurative. meningoencephalomyelitis called “staggering disease”.
  Can a virus alert system for use in primary care be developed using routinely available respiratory virus data?
  Prof A Hay
Applications accepted all year round
Improving antibiotic stewardship is an international priority. Over 75% of all health service antibiotics are prescribed by GPs and nurses in primary care.
  Characteristics and impact of back pain in older women from the UK – a mixed methods study focusing on mild versus moderate/severe vertebral fractures
  Dr E Clark, Prof R Gooberman-Hill
Applications accepted all year round
Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are common in older women. 12% of women over aged 65 have at least one vertebral deformity, the majority of which are osteoporotic in origin.
  Decoding microbial ‘cross talk’ in polymicrobial infections
  Dr N Bandara, Dr A Nobbs
Applications accepted all year round
A significant proportion of human infections are caused by microbial pathogens. These organisms interact socially to build highly organized, well-coordinated, hierarchical structures known as biofilms.
  Exploring the relative costs and benefits of commonly prescribed emollients for the treatment of childhood eczema in primary care
  Dr M Ridd, Dr s Noble
Applications accepted all year round
Rationale. Atopic eczema/dermatitis is a common long-term condition in children. It is characterised by dry and itchy skin, and it can have a significant impact on the quality of a child’s life and their family.
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  Investigating the unintended consequences of providing general practice patients with access to their online medical records.
  Dr G Lasseter, Dr J Horwood, Prof G Feder
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Partial patient online access to medical records is already offered by most general practices in England.
  Links between animal behaviour, health and welfare
  Dr SDE Held
Applications accepted all year round
An animal’s behaviour both causes and reflects changes in its health and welfare. The biological processes underlying these relationships are increasingly well understood in humans.
  Mechanisms of Streptococcus biofilm and community development
  Dr A Nobbs
Applications accepted all year round
Streptococcus bacteria are opportunistic pathogens and ubiquitous colonisers of the human oral cavity and mucosae. They are often prominent members of the resident microbiota at these sites, reflecting their evolutionary adaptation to successful colonisation of their ecological niche.
  Molecular mechanisms controlling cardiac fibroblast proliferation during cardiac fibrosis
  Dr M Bond
Applications accepted all year round
Applicants are invited for a new self-funded PhD studentship to study the molecular mechanisms of cardiac fibrosis. Myocardial fibrosis is a significant global health problem associated with nearly all forms of heart disease.
