  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.
  Exploiting the endocannabinoid system in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr F Murray, Dr J Hislop, Prof R Pertwee, Prof M A Vickers
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endocannabinoids, such as anandamide and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, are endogenous cannabinoids produced in mammalian tissues that are anti-proliferative, anti-metastatic and pro-apoptotic in lymphoma and leukaemia.
  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Immunity to Influenza and Ebola viruses
  Prof A Townsend
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This started with the investigation of T cell recognition of peptides derived from intracellular proteins of Influenza (Townsend et al 1986), that evolved into the development of a live attenuated, single cycle Influenza vaccine, based on these principles (Powell et al, 2012; Baz et al, 2015, Holzer 2018).

  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  Building the human endometrium in vitro: The role of macrophages in receptive and decidual endometrium to optimise reproductive health
  Dr E Mann, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof J Aplin, Dr L Mohiyiddeen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human endometrium is a highly dynamic tissue that rapidly generates over ~20 days and differentiates to form a uterus lining receptive to embryo implantation, further transforming into decidua to support embryonic development, or breaking down before regenerating a few days later.
  Biological and biophysical characterisation of novel virulence factors from pathogenic fungi of humans
  Dr Jonathan P Richardson, Prof G Proctor
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogenic fungi kill an estimated 1.2 million people every year. The global incidence of life-threatening fungal infections is rising, and the threat to public health from drug resistant isolates and emerging pathogens such as Candida auris is serious and growing.
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
