  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Understanding how macrophages restore immune health after infection
  Dr G Lopez-Castejon, Dr D Brough
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Inflammation is the response of the body to tissue danger.
  (BBSRC DTP) Chitinase-like proteins (CLP) as first responders to infection and injury: understanding CLP-glycosaminoglycan interactions
  Prof T Day, Prof J Allen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Parasitic worms (helminths) infect most mammals including a third of the human population. Although rarely causing death, these parasites cause significant morbidity in part by the damage they inflict while migrating through the tissues.
  (BBSRC DTP) Factors educating myeloid cell progenitors in the bone marrow of wild mice
  Prof K Else, Dr J Grainger, Dr I Mair
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A multitude of factors such as infection history (Askenase et al. 2015), microbiota composition (Khosravi et al. 2014, Balmer et al.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Analysis of the role of microRNAs in the regulation of NF-kappaB dynamics and function
  Prof M White, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round
NF-κB is one of most important cell signalling systems in the body and controls inflammation and cell fate. NF-κB signalling involves complex dynamics involving oscillations of the NF-κB complex between the nucleus and cytoplasm in activated cells.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round
Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Developing Blood Cell Production Platforms for Therapeutic Applications
  Prof G Lacaud, Prof A J Dickson
Applications accepted all year round
Generation and modification of blood cells ex vivo or in vitro harbours a huge potential in cell based therapies and regenerative medicine.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round
As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  ERK5 drives immune suppression in cancer
  Dr C Tournier, Dr K Finegan
Applications accepted all year round
The inflammatory microenvironment is arguably one of the most influential components of most, if not all, tumours (1).
  Exploring the influence of treatment on CD4+ T-cell sub-populations in patients receiving biologic drugs for their inflammatory arthritis
  Prof A Barton, Dr D Plant, Dr S Viatte
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Tumour necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) therapy is ineffective for approximately 20% of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and there is currently no way to predict which patients will not benefit.
