  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Determination of how killer pathogenic fungi evade human innate immune defences
  Prof J Quinn, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
More people die from fungal infections than from malaria, tuberculosis, or ‘superbugs’ such as MRSA. Candida species are an important group of human fungal pathogens causing over 400,000 life threatening infections per year.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developmental imaging of bacterial biofilms with advanced microscopy, image processing and machine learning
  Dr S Holden, Dr B Obara
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
We are looking for an outstanding physical/ computational scientist to develop cutting edge microscopy and quantitative imaging tools for high resolution imaging of bacterial biofilms.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Does an aged egg regain its youth after fertilisation?
  Prof M Herbert, Prof J Higgins
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Sexual reproduction depends on the transmission of exactly one copy of each chromosome by the male and female gamete during fertilisation.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Ex-vivo normothermic perfusion of organs to minimise ischemia reperfusion injury
  Prof S Ali, Prof A Fisher, Ms A Sigvardsson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Transplantation is the gold-standard treatment for patients with end stage diseases. However, the supply of donor organs is limited in number and quality.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From bench to bedside; using patient-based assays that model the gut microbiome-host interface to aid diagnosis and inform treatment of immune dysregulation
  Dr R Payne, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Immune dysregulation and impaired gut mucosal barrier function are intimately linked features of two paediatric inflammatory gut disorders; namely graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Genomic translocations, super-enhancer hijacking and oncogene activation: from mechanism to therapy
  Dr L Russell, Dr D Rico, Prof S Hambleton, Dr A Corcoran
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Haematopoiesis is a developmental process which culminates in the formation of all the blood cells required in our immune system.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating copper storage in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and its role in pathogenicity
  Prof C Dennison, Dr A De Soyza, Prof C Winstanley
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. This interdisciplinary project bridges world-leading labs with expertise in bacterial cell biology and infection. Novel therapies are needed to overcome increasing antibacterial resistance.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating microbiome–host interactions in the preterm gut using metagenomics and stem-cell derived enteroid “mini guts”
  Dr C Stewart, Dr J Kirby, Dr C Lamb
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Preterm infants born. This project seeks to extensively characterise the preterm gut microbiome and to subsequently investigate how bacteria and preterm gut epithelial cells interact.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mining the human gut microbiome for novel medically relevant glycoenzymes
  Dr D Bolam, Dr D J Rigden, Dr J Marles-Wright
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Interested in studying how the human gut microbiota breaks down host glycans to use as nutrients and how this process can be exploited for medical applications?.
