  JGW Patterson Foundation MRes plus PhD Studentship in Ageing and Arthritis - Investigating the role of asporin in osteoarthritis progression
  Dr K Pirog, Dr D Young
Application Deadline: 10 April 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 – the funding covers MRes in Musculoskeletal Ageing followed by a 3 year PhD.
  Molecular characterisation of novel pathways for cell envelope protein localisation in mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes (ref: SF18/APP/Sutcliffe)
  Prof I Sutcliffe
Applications accepted all year round
Mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes are of vital economic and medical importance. They include pathogenic species including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rhodococcus equi as well as industrially important organisms.
  The prevalence and significance of specific synthetic textile fibre types on random surfaces in forensic investigations (ref: SF18/APP/Sheridan)
  Dr KJ Sheridan
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous studies have been conducted to aid the evaluation of the significance, if any, of textile fibre links found in criminal investigations.
  Microbial community composition and biosynthetic potential of actinomycetes in the soil samples from extreme environments (ref: SF18/APP/SANGAL)
  Dr V Sangal
Applications accepted all year round
A number of bacterial species are able to survive in the extreme environmental conditions, e.g., hyper-arid soil of the Atacama desert (Busarakam et al., 2016; Castro et al., 2018).
  The role of the epigenetic diet in modulating apoptotic cell death in human carcinogenesis (ref: SF18/APP/Panagiotidis)
  Prof M Panagiotidis
Applications accepted all year round
Epigenetic modifications can contribute to carcinogenesis by various means including altering gene expression responsible for evading apoptotic cell death, abnormal cell proliferation, etc.
  New Privilege nutrients of Human Gut Microbiota from Western Diet (ref: SF18/APP/Munoz)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round
The human large bowel contains ~1013 bacteria, referred to as the human gut microbiota or HGM. There is considerable interest in deploying prebiotic and probiotic strategies to maximise the impact of the HGM on human health.
  A genetic investigation of human and non-human remains from Hadrian’s Wall and the northern frontier of the Roman empire (ref: SF18/APP/GRAHAM)
  Dr E Graham
Applications accepted all year round
Over the past decade, advances in genetic technologies have made it possible to determine much more information from a sample of DNA.
  Persistence of the Listeria monocytogenes in food processing environments: Unravelling the mechanisms using omics approaches (ref: SF18/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round
The pathogenic bacterium Listeria monocytogenes causes the severe disease listeriosis, which is associated with high mortality rates of approximately 20%.
  Multivariate analysis of human craniofacial geometry (ref: SF18/APP/EVISON)
  Prof M Evison
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding of variation in the geometry of the face and skull is valuable in clinical applications, such those involving surgical interventions undertaken in response to trauma or disease.
