Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. Read more

EASTBIO Bacterial selfishness, and how bacterial communities cope with nutrient shortage

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. Most antibiotics target rapidly dividing bacteria. However, for the majority of their existence, bacteria grow in conditions where a few or most nutrients are limiting so that very little to no propagation takes place. Read more

EASTBIO Assessing microbiome functional traits as indicators of soil health for sustainable agriculture

Soil is a multifunctional environment upon which our food security depends. The ability of soils to maintain particular functions which contribute to ecosystem services (such as food, fibre and energy production) is compromised by soil degradation. Read more

Enhancing the sustainability of cut flower packaging MRes

This MSc by Research is funded by Arena Flowers (£18,000 bursary + fees for a year) and represents an exciting opportunity to make an impact towards sustainability of the cut-flower industry. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Nutrient - Mediated Bacterial Delivery of "Dual Warhead" Antimicrobials

Microbial resistance to antibiotics has been a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more

Facultative anaerobiosis by mycobacteria: computational systems biology to model bioenergetics

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of the Rules of Life through the lens of systems biology to investigate how thermodynamic constraints can limit bacterial adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

To feast among the starving: facultative anaerobiosis by Mycobacterium avium

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of the Rules of Life through the lens of microbial physiology to investigate metabolic and respiratory adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

Can Mycobacteria help solve the global crisis of phosphorus bioavailability?

Phosphorus is one of the planetary boundaries that determine Earth’s ecosystem stability and safe use of resources (1). Phosphorus is a key element of life required by all living organisms. 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

Forests in a changing environment: A study of nitrogen cycle feedbacks

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Novel research to describe forest nitrogen cycle dynamics in response to global change. Access to one of the most extensively characterised ancient woodlands in the UK, facilitating opportunities for wider collaboration in forest ecology research. Read more
