Showing 1 to 10 of 13
  Exploring the role of meiotic proteins in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round
Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  The Biology of Parasitism in Parasitic Nematodes
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
We work on the biology of parasitic nematode worms, particularly Strongyloides spp. The recent, detailed characterisation of the Strongyloides genome (Hunt et al.
  microRNAs as tools to regulate senescence of musculoskeletal cells during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof P Clegg
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
As the ageing population continues to increase, it is important to address ageing-related health issues. There is currently no effective treatments for many common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as sarcopenia or osteoarthritis, which increase in prevalence during ageing.
  The role of modified microRNAs in fibrosis during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs that regulate the expression of multiple mRNAs posttranscriptionally (Brown & Goljanek-Whysall, Aging Res Rev 2015).
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round
In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Functional and –omics investigation of neutrophil activation in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots, Dr M Phelan
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophils are key effector cells in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus and vasculitis.
  Molecular analysis of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in rheumatoid arthritis
  Dr HL Wright, Prof RJ Moots
Applications accepted all year round
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) kill pathogens via the release of chromatin and anti-microbial granule enzymes in an extracellular mesh or “net”.
  Understanding the role of TNFRSF11B polymorphisms in osteoprotegerin bioavailability and bone metabolism
  Dr A Daroszewska, Prof R van ‘t Hof
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on determining the effect of the polymorphisms of the TNFRSF11B gene, which encodes osteoprotegerin (OPG), on bone metabolism.
  Examining the host-environmental interface of Histoplasma capsulatum to understand the implications of disease management within endemic populations.
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Applications accepted all year round
Histoplasmosis is an endemic disease with serious consequences to equine and human health. This dimorphic fungus favours nitrogen rich environments, and generates highly resistant spores.
