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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Metals and bacterial virulence: overcoming metal intoxication during infection
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton, Prof J Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen, being the leading bacterial cause of human acute gastroenteritis and responsible for an estimated 0.5 billion cases each year.
  (BBSRC DTP) Plant-based production of a vaccine against gonorrhoea
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhoea is caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. N. gonorrhoeae is a close relative of Neisseria meningitidis, which causes meningococcal meningitis.
