  Adaptive management of stochastic parasite challenge in animals under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr M Robinson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Climate change is causing greater variation in conditions for parasite transmission, and increased unpredictability in disease outbreaks in farmed and other animals.
  Exposing drivers for parasite growth and virulence at the single cell level
  Prof A Maule, Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasites infect one third of the human population, causing staggering levels of morbidity. They also blight food production systems by undermining plant and animal health globally.
  Innovative Diagnostics for Helminth Parasite Infections
  Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Helminth (worm) parasites cause ill health and poor productivity in farm animals worldwide. Control relies largely on anthelmintic drugs, either applied en masse to entire herds based on perceived infection risk, or guided by treatment decisions made using sub-optimal diagnostic tests.
  Schistosome blood flukes and bacteria: How pathogens interact with other pathogens, and the host
  Dr G Gobert, Dr J Megaw
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasitic schistosome flukes reside in the blood stream of the host, causing significant chronic disease in hundreds of millions of people in tropical and sub-tropical countries.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  Precision Medicine DTP - Genomic analysis of the impact of sexual recombination on the segregation of virulence genes in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Dr L Morrison, Dr A MacLeod, Dr J Prendergast
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. African trypanosomes are vector-borne protozoa that cause serious human and animal disease across sub-Saharan Africa.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Approaches to detect and block transition stages in Trypanosoma brucei
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Dr T Otto, Dr R McCulloch
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Thomas Otto. Prof Richard McCulloch. Prof Keith Matthews. Project summary. Trypanosomatids are a grouping of single-celled parasites belonging to the order Kinetoplastea.
  Investigating the diarrhoeal pathogens in vulnerable populations in developing countries
  Dr A Tsaousis, Dr M Shepherd
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020
