How does microbial metabolism influence the evolution of Antimicrobial Resistance

Multi-drug resistant (MDR) Gram negative pathogens represent one of the most significant threats to global public health. MDR clones of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae now dominate the global landscape of urinary tract infections and bloodstream infections. Read more

Redefining the metabolism of nitrogen cycling microbes using Dual Stable Isotope Probing (LEHTOVIRTA_UBIO22ARIES)

Primary Supervisor - Dr Laura Lehtovitra-Morley. Secondary Supervisor - Professor Matt Hutchings (John Innes Centre). Supervisory Team - Professor Colin Murrell (University of East Anglia, School of Environmental Sciences). Read more

Engineering metabolic pathways for optimal performance within host and biotechnological constraints.

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

Iron Biology

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism. Read more

EASTBIO Do circadian rhythms in ion concentrations drive cellular metabolic rhythms?

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
In the living cell, virtually nothing stays the same over the day/night cycle. Endogenous ~24h rhythms are driven by a biological timekeeping system, the circadian clock, that dynamically regulates nearly all biological processes to match Earth's environmental cycle. Read more

The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery. Read more

Exploiting human gut microbiome in mucus to combat pathogens (JUGE_Q22MMB)

This PhD studentship provides an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to investigate gut symbiont-pathogen interactions at the mucosal surface and acquire advanced skills in both in silico and in vivo approaches. . Read more

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

Iron Homeostasis In Bacterial Plant Colonization And Disease

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via specific transport mechanisms. Read more

The crosstalk between tumour microenvironments and MAFF to determine transcriptional activation or repression

Radiation is effective in treating many types of cancers by inducing oxidative stress through the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that result in DNA damage, in particular, DNA double strand breaks (DSBs). Read more

EASTBIO Metabolic engineering to produce novel natural products as tools for understanding response to environmental changes.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Fatty acids and lipids are important factors in human health though our diets, and are essential for cellular homeostasis (membranes) and protein regulation (S-acylation, N-myristoylation, GPI anchors) in all eukaryotes. Read more
