  (BBSRC DTP) Development of anti-cancer agents and biomarkers that target intrinsically disordered regions of transcription factors and protein kinases
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The controlled manipulation of transcription factors, protein kinases and protein phosphatases is central to improving our understanding of cellular processes and, importantly, in the development of next-generation therapeutics for a variety of cancers.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing biomarkers of inflammatory gut responses in free-ranging, healthy and diseased equid populations.
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr S Shulltz, Prof K Else, Dr S Cruickshank
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In managed horses (and other equids), disorders associated with inflammation in the equine gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including gastric ulcers, high parasite burdens and enteritis/colitis are widepsread health and welfare issues.
  (A*STAR) Analysis of the role of microRNAs in the regulation of NF-kappaB dynamics and function
  Prof Mike White, Dr A P Gilmore, Prof S Griffiths-Jones
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NF-κB is a key signalling system that controls inflammation and cell fate, dysregulation of which can lead to inflammatory disease or cancer.
  (A*STAR) Regulatory pathways and skin barrier function
  Dr S Cruickshank, Dr J Wong
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining a healthy skin barrier is vital for our health and in response to skin wounding, we have a well -orchestrated immune response that heals the breach.
  (A*STAR) The use of digitised proteomic mapping using mass spectrometry to identify optimal conditions for biological therapy products
  Prof A D Whetton, Dr R Unwin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological therapies (such as antibodies) are revolutionising precision medicine. We need more such products and better quality products.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Understanding and predicting the immunogenicity of therapeutic protein products
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr R Dearman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopharmaceuticals, or therapeutic protein products (TPPs) have been in widespread clinical use for several decades. They comprise a wide range of pharmaceutical products, from vaccines to hormones, cytokines and monoclonal antibodies.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing a whipworm vaccine composed of virus-like particles expressing Trichuris T cell epitopes
  Prof K Else, Prof J P Derrick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination is one of the greatest advances in global health; however most successful vaccines have been made empirically. We still have little insight into how many vaccines work and the mechanisms by which they trigger protective immune responses.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the developing microbiome in new-born babies
  Dr S Cruickshank, Prof A McBain, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome contains a large diverse community of microorganisms with our bacteria being best understood. These bacteria play crucial roles for our health such as aiding in the digestion of food, production of key vitamins and metabolites and programming out immune system.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the host-microbiome interactions to promote healthy skin function
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof A McBain, Prof C A O'Neill, Dr A Kendall
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The surface of our skin is an intriguing landscape covered by a diverse population of microorganisms that are collectively known as the cutaneous ‘microbiome’.
  (BBSRC DTP) From mucin biochemistry to pulmonary immunity: How do mucins promote antimicrobial lung defences?
  Prof E Bignell, Prof D Thornton, Dr A Horsley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory mucus plays multiple essential roles in mammalian lung function, from hydrating the epithelium and supporting gaseous exchange, to expelling inhaled particles and microbes and providing a conduit for innate and adaptive immune signaling.
