  Antimicrobial resistance in sexually transmissible enteric infections
  Dr K Baker, Dr C Jenkins
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexually transmissible enteric infections among men who have sex with men (MSM) are increasing worldwide and often show antimicrobial resistance (AMR), like many other sexually transmitted infections.
  Bayesian graphical models for strain resolution from hybrid metagenomics sequencing
  Assoc Prof C Quince, Prof A Darby
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diversity of microbial communities, or microbiomes, and their importance to both human health, for example the gut, and the environment, has only become apparent through the development of improved DNA sequencing technologies.
  Establishing and validating different histology-based approaches to quantitatively assess efficacy of therapies in an animal model of ischaemia reperfusion injury (IRI)
  Dr L Ressel, Prof P Murray, Dr B Wilm
Application Deadline: 19 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute and chronic kidney disease in children is increasing but new therapies to help treat and prevent the progression of the disease are lacking.
  Evaluation of national syndromic surveillance data for the surveillance of GI pathogens and exploration of novel sources of syndromic surveillance data to enhance GI surveillance
  Prof A Elliot, Prof I Buchan
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Syndromic surveillance is the near real-time collection, analysis and interpretation of ‘big data’, including healthcare data and other associated sources of health related information e.g.
  Genome-wide association studies for gastrointestinal infections
  Prof X Didelot, Prof N McCarthy
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution in bacteria, as in humans and other forms of life, is driven by genetic variation and selection. Different forms of a gene, or the presence or absence of a gene can lead to different function or phenotype.
  Investigating the impact of local government environmental health services on gastrointestinal infections
  Prof B Barr
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will develop and analyse small area measures of GI infection burden and control measures to understand the drivers of variation in GI infection burden between places.
  Joint analysis of national surveillance and external data and modelling of disease spread
  Prof N McCarthy
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The surveillance role of Public Health England generates large epidemiological and pathogen genome datasets to support disease monitoring and control.
  Novel methods for tracking movement of mobile genetic elements in the human gut microbiome
  Assoc Prof C Quince
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which the microbiome can act as a reservoir of clinically important genes such as antimicrobial resistance genes has not been established.
  Rapid and precise detection of gastrointestinal infections using metagenome sequencing
  Assoc Prof C Quince, Prof A Darby
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whole genome sequencing is now established as the gold standard for monitoring bacterial pathogens allowing both epidemics to be reconstructed and phenotype to be characterized.
  STEC surveillance and patient management in the culture-free era
  Dr C Jenkins, Dr T Dallman
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a zoonotic pathogen of public health concern due to its potential to cause severe gastrointestinal symptoms in humans, including bloody diarrhoea and haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS); STEC is the leading cause of renal failure in children.
  Syndromic surveillance of gastrointestinal illness for a more connected future
  Prof I Buchan, Prof A Elliot
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to prevent and control gastrointestinal diseases, public health services need to analyse data from many sources, including GPs, hospitals and laboratories.
  Understanding ethnic inequalities in gastrointestinal infections in the UK
  Prof B Barr
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are large difference in the burden of gastrointestinal (GI) infections between places in the UK.
