Ecosystem resilience to pathogens

A fully funded PhD scholarship is available via the QUEX scheme, jointly supervised by Associate Professor Jan Engelstaedter (The University of Queensland, Australia) and Dr Ben Longdon (University of Exeter, UK). Read more

Leveraging polysaccharide degrading abilities of wastewater treatment microbiomes to develop clean future polymers

The overarching goal of this project is to characterise the natural polysaccharide-degrading ability of wastewater treatment plant microbiomes to tailor production of functionalised 'clean future polymers' that are likely to be degraded prior to discharge of wastewater back into the environment.

TYLERK_U23MED - Functional Genomics and Metagenomics of Cryptosporidiosis

Human cryptosporidiosis is the leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and most infection is caused by either person to person transmitted Cryptosporidium hominis or the presumptively zoonotic C. Read more

Discovery of novel antibiotic natural products from spider fungi (GANESANA_U23SF)

Antimicrobial resistance is a major healthcare challenge globally. Our approach to solving this global crisis is to hunt for novel natural products from microorganisms as leads for drug discovery. Read more

Identification and characterisation of bacteriocins from environmental samples active against strains of Clostridium difficile.

Clostridiodes difficile is a cause of neonatal enteritis in livestock such as pigs, cattle and horses. Affected animals develop respiratory problems, abdominal distention and bloody diarrhoea leading to weight loss and in extreme cases mortality. Read more

Redefining the use of steroids in endometriosis: key mechanisms and new solutions

Endometriosis is a debilitating condition that affects an estimated 190 million women of reproductive-age worldwide [1]. In endometriosis, cells similar to the lining of the uterus typically form lesions around the bowel, ovaries and bladder, causing chronic inflammation and scarring. Read more

Chemical proteomics of multisite fungicides

This PhD project, run in collaboration with Syngenta (. https://www.syngenta.com/en). and part funded by CAMS (Community for Analytical Measurement Science,. Read more

Mathematical modelling of oral microbiome resilience

Maintenance of oral health is essential. It is known that the microbiome, host response, and human behaviours (e.g. tooth brushing) play an essential role in maintaining oral health. Read more

Isolation and classification of bacteriophages purified from maternal breast milk and determination of their role in bacterial community development. (ref: RDFC22/HLS/APP/DSMITH4)

Survival of very preterm infants has significantly increased over the last 20 years, but late onset sepsis (LOS) and serious bowel disease including necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) remain major causes of death and disability in those born < 32 weeks of gestation). Read more

Self-funded project: New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants

Application accepted for either MSc by Research or PhD. We are interested in using biological methods to detect both biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples. Read more
