  Complement escape by malaria parasites
  Prof S Meri, Prof V Fremeaux-Bacchi
Application Deadline: 10 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fact that various stages of the malaria parasites can survive in human blood suggest that they are capable of escaping destruction by the host complement system.
  Structure based design of angiotensin-converting enzyme (from Anopheles gambiae) inhibitors as mosquitocides
  Prof K R Acharya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquitoes of the Anopheles and Aedes genus are some of the most deadly insects to humans because of their effectiveness as vectors of malaria and a range of arboviruses, including yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile and zika.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  Characterization of C5aR2 expression and function in Toxoplasma gondii infection
  Prof J Koehl, Prof D Wilflingseder
Application Deadline: 10 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) is a widespread obligate intracellular protozoan parasite. It is of major medical importance during pregnancy and in immunocompromised individuals.
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium parvum anthroponosum – A new threat to world health (TYLERMEDOct2020)
  Dr K Tyler, Prof N Hall
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Detecting Schistisome Infection in Biomphalaria and Bulinus Snails
  Dr C M Wade, Dr S Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 24 July 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.
