  Machine Learning and Integrative Approaches in Immunology: Developing machine-learning and mathematical models to understand heterogeneity of response to personalised cancer immunotherapy
  Dr H Koohy, Prof V Cerundolo, Prof T Dong, Prof A Simmons
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer immunology is an area of cancer research that is gaining tremendous momentum. However, responses to immunotherapy are heterogeneous and patient care could be substantially improved by better understanding of how and why responses to immunotherapeutic approaches vary in different patients.
  Molecular nano-immunology and optical microscopy: the application and development of ultra-sensitive, live-cell fluorescence microscopy techniques with a spatial resolution down to the molecular level
  Prof C Eggeling
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Nano-Immunology group is based in the Human Immunology Unit at the MRC WIMM. The Group is headed by Prof Christian Eggeling, an expert in fluorescence microscopy and especially in the development and application of super-resolution fluorescence (STED) microscopy with a long-standing record in this field.
  B cell development and immune regulation: understanding B cell development and diseases associated with abnormal antibody production
  Prof R Cornall, Prof S Davis
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our aims are to understand B cell development and diseases associated with abnormal antibody production. Inadequate or excessive immune responses lead to immunodeficiency or autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, which place a major economic and social burden on world health and the quality of human life.
  Using organoid models to better understand liver immunology
  Prof G Ahlenstiel, Dr S read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are currently being accepted for a 3 year PhD project in the immunology of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) at Western Sydney University Blacktown and the Westmead Institute for Medical Research.
  Intestinal Immunology: exploring disease associated colonic mesenchymal populations, investigating molecular determinants of their evolution and function in barrier breakdown in IBD
  Prof A Simmons, Dr H Koohy
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how the intestinal immune system functions to enable the symbiotic relationship with the intestinal microflora required for health.
  Genetic and immunological basis of rare primary immunodeficiency diseases
  Dr P Arkwright, Dr T Briggs, Prof T Hussell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Objective. To understand the genetic and explore the functional immune basis of rare primary immunodeficiency diseases. Background.
  Regulation and function of cytotoxic lymphocytes
  Dr I. Voskoboinik, Prof J.A. Trapani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cytotoxic lymphocytes recognize and kill cancerous and virus-infected cells through cytotoxic granule exocytosis pathway. Cytotoxic granules store a pore-forming protein, perforin, and serine proteases, granzymes.
  Regulation of the Host-Microbiome Interface in the Gastrointestinal Tract
  Prof U Knaus
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammatory diseases of the gut are on the rise. In North America and Europe, more than 0.3% of the population suffers from inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and weight loss.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Impact of obesity on human and murine dermal lymphatics
  Dr J Sethi
Application Deadline: 9 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Institute / Faculty. Human Development and Health, Faculty of Medicine. Main Supervisor. Dr Jaswinder K. Sethi. Other members of the supervisory team.
  Analysing immune responses to metastatic ovarian tumours to identify therapeutic targets
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Creating “super” regulatory T cells to combat rejection, GVHD and autoimmunity through retroviral gene manipulation
  Dr N Jones, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Foxp3+CD25+CD4+ regulatory T cells (Treg) have been shown to be essential for the induction of tolerance to foreign organ transplants in experimental models.
  Investigating how ovarian tumours avoid immune responses in cancer patients
  Dr J H Caamano, Dr D Withers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynaecological malignancy for women over 50 years old (1).
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
