  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
  Therapeutic targeting of chemokines in inflammation
  Prof S Bhattacharya
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation, driven by leucocytes, adversely affects organ function in diseases such as myocarditis, myocardial infarction, acute lung injury, sepsis and pancreatitis,.
  (MRC DTP) Location, Location, Location: The importance of the immunological landscape during parasitic infection
  Prof R K Grencis, Dr K Couper
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whipworm infection is one of the three major types of parasitic helminth infections of man, infecting one in fifteen of the world’s population.
  (MRC DTP) The role of the brain glymphatic system in recovery from cerebral malaria
  Dr K Couper, Prof D Brough, Dr M Fergie
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebral malaria is a severe complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection that affects 2 -3 million people, resulting in approximately 300,000 deaths, each year.
  Environmental control of dendritic cell activation and function during pulmonary type 2 inflammation
  Prof A MacDonald, Prof J Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 inflammation is a defining feature of infection with parasitic worms (helminths), as well as being responsible for widespread suffering in allergies.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  Investigating the impact of chronic parasite infection on immune cell development
  Dr J Hewitson, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than a quarter of the global population is infected with a parasitic worm, resulting in a range of diseases and pathologies.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
