  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Investigating the molecular mechanism of inflammatory bowel disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohn’s disease together with ulcerative colitis (UC) are the two main variations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). 2.5-3 million people in Europe are affected by inflammatory bowel disease with a direct healthcare cost of 4.5-6 billion Euro per year.
  Metabolic control of T cell function
  Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current research interests in Sarah Dimeloe’s lab focus on the metabolism and interlinked immune function of T lymphocytes in health and disease.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Structure and Function of Innate Immune Signalling in Mosquito Vectors
  Research Group: Dr M Gangloff
  Dr M Gangloff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the course of a long evolutionary history vector-borne pathogens have developed mechanisms to successfully disrupt natural defences in both their mammalian hosts and insect vectors in order to survive and establish infection.
  A candidate-gene approach for targeted identification of new parasite immunomodulators against allergic asthma
  Dr H McSorley, Dr H Smits
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on our knowledge of how parasitic helminths manipulate the host immune response, in a collaboration between the groups of Dr Henry McSorley (University of Dundee) and Dr Hermelijn Smits (Leiden University Medical Centre, the Netherlands).
  Hair follicle dysbiosis and immune privilege alteration as drivers of human skin dysfunction, interrogating dandruff pathogenesis as a model
  Prof R Paus, Dr J Hardman
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the psycho-social burden of dandruff and the commercial relevance of its management, the molecular and cellular pathobiology of this condition is poorly understood.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
