EASTBIO Its about time, the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

EASTBIO Are chronic infection stage trypanosomes different to acute stage forms?

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. This causes losses of several billion dollars in agricultural productivity in this region each year. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

Ultrastructural analysis of the mouse whipworm as a model for human trichuriasis

Gastrointestinal dwelling nematode parasites are extremely successful parasites of both man and animals infecting over a billion people worldwide and are responsible for considerable morbidity and ill health worldwide. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Dissecting the molecular machine responsible for singular antigen expression and immune evasion in African trypanosomes using cryoEM.

In the host-pathogen arms race, antigenic variation is one of the most powerful and highly sophisticated virulence mechanisms. Some of the deadliest parasites, such as African trypanosomes and malaria parasites, are able to systematically alter the identity of proteins displayed to the host immune system. Read more

Understanding the biological mechanisms underpinning the virulence of Varroa destructor to the European honey bee (Apis mellifera)

Insect pollinators are necessary for the reproductive success of 88% of flowering plants globally. Managed Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) offer mobile pollination services to complement wild pollinators and contribute to this ecosystem service. Read more

EASTBIO Ubiquitin dynamics during host-pathogen interaction

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Protein ubiquitination is a key regulatory process that controls many aspects of eukaryotic life. Both free living and pathogenic organisms employ ubiquitination mediated protein networks to adapt to their environment. Read more

EASTBIO Dynamics of mitochondrial genome complexity in trypanosomes

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Human and livestock diseases caused by trypanosomatid parasites threaten health and livelihood of millions of people in Africa, South America and Asia. Read more
