How have the natural microbiomes from different ruminant body sites evolved to influence host health and efficiency?

As part of the €10M EU project ‘Holoruminant’ this PhD project will investigate the natural microbiomes found in and on ruminants to investigate their ecological and evolutionary importance to the health and efficiency of the host. Read more

Phytochemicals as safe and sustainable antibiotic alternative for effective control of pathogenic organisms in humans and animals

The use of antibiotics in livestock has significantly contributed to animal health and welfare as well as high quality of food production in modern farming but has also been linked to the rapid development and global spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Read more

The role of stress-mediated post-translational modifications in the regulation of histone demethylase KDM4A

We recently discovered that KDM4A is one of the proteins responsible for a specific type of epigenetic modification required for regulation of rRNA transcription activation and showed that a major cellular growth and survival signalling pathway (the PI3K pathway) controls cellular localisation of KDM4A, which is critical for its functions.

Investigating the nature and implications of archaea-bacteria interactions

Studies of the Domain Archaea have historically been considered a small, niche sub-field of microbiology, due to their largely extremophilic nature and consequent restriction to a few key environments. Read more

The genetic and/or epigenetic nature of antifungal drug tolerance in Candida glabrata

To establish the molecular basis of antifungal drug tolerance in the human yeast pathogen Candida glabrata. Pathogenic fungi from the Candida genus are obligate human commensals, which cause disease when host immune systems are compromised. Read more

Novel biocatalysts from ancient marine environments

Biocatalysis aims to utilise enzymes as industrial entities for the production of various products – such as pharmaceutical precursors, bio-energy components, agri-food products and fine chemicals. Read more

Understanding microbiomes of the ruminant holobiont

Animal Health, Microbiomes and the Holobiont. Sustainability of ruminant production is of concern to society because of its implications for the environment, the economy and food security. Read more

Plant food consumption, flavonoids and cardiometabolic health

Plant-based diets have become very popular due to potential benefits for individual and planetary health. The goal of this PhD project will be to investigate the role of flavonoids as mediators of health benefits of plant food consumption. Read more
