  Dynamics of a minimal neuronal network with multisynaptic dendrites
  Dr J Liu, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Neurons are morphologically very complex cells with large arborisations that can extend for several millimetres. Communication between neurons relies on action potential driven release of neurotransmitter at specialised sites called synapses.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge. Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is particularly problematic, for example the UK has ~20,000 infectious diarrhoeal cases every year, and progressive complications can lead to death in ~3% of infected patients.
  Serine/threonine protein kinase mediated regulation of protein secretion in mycobacteria
  Dr G Mukamolova, Dr H O'Hare
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Tuberculosis remains a major global threat as it affects humans and production animals. Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agents of tuberculosis in human and animals, are highly successful pathogens which secrete multiple virulence factors.
  Investigating novel treatments for sepsis by understanding the pathogenesis of invasive infection
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
We have recently discovered that bacteria, previously considered extracellular pathogens replicate within a subset of macrophages before causing invasive infection (Ercoli et al., Nature Microbiology 2018).
  Bacterial survival in the host and in the environment is promoted by horizontal gene transfer of additional metal resistance genes
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof P W Andrew
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Excess copper is highly toxic and forms part of the host innate immune system’s antibacterial arsenal, accumulating at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens.
  Iron acquisition using host lactoferrin by the bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof J Ketley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the main cause of bacterial food-borne disease in the UK and is a global public health priority. Infection and transmission are usually linked with contaminated food or water, with chicken being a major source.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Understanding how mutability facilitates survival of alternating selection and bottlenecks by the major food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Bacterial pathogens are subject to two strong pressures during spread within and transmission between hosts.
