  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Can PTP1B inhibition rewire macrophage function to improve anti-tumour immunity in breast cancer treatment?
  Dr H M Wilson, Prof N Vargesson
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment for breast cancer is improving but new therapies are often only successful in a proportion of patients and some patients develop resistance.
  Regulation of the Host-Microbiome Interface in the Gastrointestinal Tract
  Prof U Knaus
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammatory diseases of the gut are on the rise. In North America and Europe, more than 0.3% of the population suffers from inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and weight loss.
  Investigation and treatment of trabecular meshwork fibrosis using 3D glaucoma models.
  Dr L Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The development of safe and effective therapies to treat fibrosis is a major priority for patients with glaucoma. This ocular disease is characterised by elevated intraocular eye pressure (IOP), resulting from ineffective drainage of the aqueous humour.
  The effects of androgenetic alopecia development on immune function
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Prof K McElwee, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Androgen hormones can have significant effects on hair follicles in androgen sensitive regions of the scalp, beard, and other areas of skin.
  What keeps the gut stem cell niche healthy? (SOBOLEWSKIAU19SF)
  Dr A Sobolewski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A normal functioning epithelium is vital for a healthy gut. The epithelium forms a protective barrier between the bacteria and food contents in the intestine and the underlying immune system, so preventing an immune response.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysregulation of innate immunity has been implicated as playing a key role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a major form of blindness in the industrialised world (see [1-5]).
