This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  MSc by Research Programme: Development of novel therapeutics against parasitic disease
  Prof M Field
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Investigating the Neuro-Immune axis of African trypanosomiasis
  Dr J Worthington, Dr L Jackson-Jones, Dr N Dawson, Dr M Urbaniak
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multi-disciplinary PhD project investigating the immune and neurological response to sleeping sickness is available within the Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences at Lancaster University.
  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.
  Identification of the Trypanosoma brucei transferrin receptor-recognition site of transferrin (SteverdingDU19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The transferrin receptor of the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei (TbTfR) is a heterodimeric protein complex encoded by two expression site associated genes, ESAG6 and ESAG7, which shows no homology to the homodimeric human transferrin receptor (hTfR).
  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.
  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.
