  Adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in people with bronchiectasis during chronic inhaled treatment
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals with bronchiectasis have respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa which may lead to a worse clinical trajectory.
  Antimicrobial prescribing in hospice and palliative care
  Dr C Parsons, Dr D Gilpin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Terminally ill patients are at high risk of infections and antimicrobial exposure near the end of life. However, the evidence-base to guide prescribers in the use of antibiotics for the treatment of infections in patients receiving hospice and palliative care is currently lacking.
  Deep learning analysis of large-scale sequence data in health and disease
  Dr B Devereux, Dr M Tunney
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case in many other information processing domains, deep learning frameworks are emerging as powerful and highly effective tool in Bioinformatics and health analytics, including in the analysis of genetics, proteomics and clinical text data.
  Determining the microbiome of the homes of people with chronic respiratory diseases
  Dr D Gilpin, Dr D Downey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of the microbial world in and around us has radically changed. The idea that we live with a complex and diverse community of microbes, has moved us away from a “hygiene hypothesis”, where having less bacteria was, to put it simply, better.
  Development and testing of deep learning algorithms to predict pulmonary exacerbations and development of antimicrobial resistance in people with chronic respiratory disease
  Dr M Tunney, Prof JS Elborn
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In people with Cystic Fibrosis, acute infective exacerbations or ‘flare-ups’ of chronic respiratory infection are the single most important cause of poor outcome and are associated with increased symptoms, reduced lung function and local and systemic inflammation.
  Enhancing Macrophage-Biofilm Interaction using Non-Thermal Plasma
  Prof B Gilmore, Dr P Flynn
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to generate plasmas (quasi-neutral, wholly or partially ionised gases) at ambient or tissue tolerable temperatures has given rise to the nascent field of plasma medicine.
  Nanoparticle delivery of antibiotics for treatment of pulmonary infection
  Dr V Kett, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In respiratory diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and COPD, the lungs are colonized by diverse polymicrobial bacterial communities.
  Relationship between antibiotic therapy and development of antimicrobial resistance in patients with bronchiectasis
  Dr M Tunney, Prof JS Elborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To decrease the risk of acute infective exacerbations or flare-ups of their condition, individuals with bronchiectasis are frequently prescribed long-term oral and inhaled antibiotics.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Identifying beneficial plant-microbial interactions using multi-omic approaches
  Dr M Swain, Dr S Cameron, Dr K Farrar
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Microbes known as endophytes are usually bacteria or fungi, which live within specific plant tissues without causing disease.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Temperature regulation of microRNAs and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Plants manipulate the rhizosphere (soil surrounding the plant root) through the release of water-soluble and volatile organic compounds known collectively as root exudate.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Willow (Salix spp): The potential of a tannin-rich tree fodder to reduce ammonia emissions and improve productivity of dairy cattle
  Dr K Theodoridou, Dr S Stergiadis, Prof S Huws
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Farm productions systems face multiple challenges as animal products need to be produced with less environmental impact without affecting animal welfare.
