Showing 1 to 9 of 9
  DNA damage response and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr S Khoronenkova
Applications accepted all year round
Human cells repair thousands of DNA lesions daily. The majority of lesions arise from the intrinsic chemical instability of DNA and include single-strand breaks and base modifications.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round
This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  BBSRC DTP targeted studentship - The role of RNA elements that control protein synthesis during host pathogen interaction
  Dr B Chung, Dr G Fraser, Dr A Firth
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Understanding host responses to pathogen infection is critical for guiding the development of intervention strategies. Changes in gene expression are commonly observed upon infection, as exemplified by numerous transcriptomic studies.
  Early PI3-mediated translation response during intracellular bacterial and viral infection
  Dr B Chung
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Biotic stresses often occur on short timescales, making rapid response crucial for survival of both host and pathogen. Cells respond to stress by regulating gene expression at multiple steps but especially transcription, translation and protein turnover.
  How do malaria parasites sense and respond to DNA damage?
  Dr C Merrick
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The malaria parasite Plasmodium has a complex lifecycle involving several highly unusual cell cycles. Rather than conventional binary fission, it grows via syncytial modes of replication, producing multinucleate syncytia prior to budding and cytokinesis.
  Developing alternatives to antibiotics in UK pig production – the efficacy and mechanism of action of marine sulphated polysaccharides
  Dr G Pearce, Dr M Holmes
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Project Background. The use of antibiotics has played a major role in improving the health status, welfare and productivity of pig production over the last 50 years.
  Exploring aberrant inflammasome activation in chronic granulomatous disease
  Dr S Webster, Prof C E Bryant
Applications accepted all year round
This project will test the hypothesis. Aberrant inflammasome activation can be caused by mitochondrial ROS mediated NLRP3 inflammasome activation.
  Pathophysiology of red cell membrane permeability
  Dr J Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Our project investigates how red cell membrane permeability is altered in pathophysiological states.
