Tumour metabolic and immune landscape in spatial resolution: using engineered bacterial cancer therapy to enhance anti-tumour T cell responses

Bacterial cancer therapy (BCT) is a promising and versatile therapeutic for solid tumours. Salmonella enterica Typhimurium (STm) is the most well-studied among bacterial vectors due to advantages in ease of genetic modification, metabolic adaptation, and motility. Read more

Finding new antibiotics in the soil microbiota (MALONE_J22MMB)

The increase in drug-resistant bacterial infections is a major global health threat. This crisis is exacerbated by a lack of new antibiotics, caused by multiple factors including the frequent rediscovery of known antibiotics. Read more

Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses. Read more

Elucidating and exploiting molecular mechanisms of bacterial natural product biosynthesis

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

Chromatin assembly and higher-order dynamics

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

Understanding complement system dysregulation in the tumour microenvironment

Inducing a stress response analogous to anti-viral immunity is important for maximising immune responses against the tumour. However, tumours evolve evasion strategies that can limit these responses. Read more

EASTBIO Understanding the role of RNA in regulating metabolic enzymes in multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is causing major health-care problems world-wide and is becoming increasingly difficult to treat with current antibiotics. Read more

What is the role of intestinal mucins in health maintenance during ageing?

An increasing proportion of our population falls within the elderly age bracket. As a result, the identification of interventions that help people stay healthy into their old age is one of the most significant challenges facing biomedical research. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

Health span extension mediated by the diet and microbiota

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more
