Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health, Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences (JCC)

The vision of the Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences (JCC) is to become a centre of excellence in Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences education and research, and one of the twenty leading veterinary schools in the world within the next twenty years. . Read more

Novel anti-pathogen regulatory mechanisms driven by Human Guanylate Binding Proteins

Human GBPs are a family of seven ~65kDa GTPases whose expression is upregulated by IFNg, for example during an infection. All mammalian GBPs contain a GTPase domain and a C-terminal helical region. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Immunotherapy against trypanosomiasis: Proof of concept

Drug discovery for parasitic diseases remains a major challenge and global health need. Significant advances in screening technology and methods to understand the mode of action in the past decade have contributed hugely to our arsenal of biological tools to control these pathogens. Read more

Defence evolution under protective symbiosis: how do nuclear and symbiont defences interact?

Animals live in symbiosis with microbes. The presence of symbionts modifies the biology of the host in fundamental ways. In insects and other arthropods, symbionts have become part of the genetic inheritance – passed from a female to her progeny in or on eggs. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Regulation of Leishmania cellular remodelling during life cycle transition

This project aims to investigate the signalling pathways that regulate key events in the life cycle of Leishmania and which protein kinases are essential and therefore potentially responsive to chemotherapeutic modulation. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Helminth-induced changes to host haematopoiesis – a permanent problem?

More than a quarter of the global population is infected with a parasitic worm that causes a range of diseases. On-going work in our laboratories is focused on understanding how parasites such as schistosomes cause wide-ranging changes to host bone marrow and re-programme mammalian haematopoiesis. Read more

Using cryoEM to understand pathogen antibiotic transport and resistance

Background. A number of dangerous pathogens are increasingly resistant to our front-line antibiotics, raising the prospect of a ‘post-antibiotic era’ where we can no longer treat infectious diseases. Read more

Ecology and behaviour of urban wildlife

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans. Read more

Host-Parasite Interactions

Our lab (. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Jo_Cable). investigates host-parasite dynamics and the ecosystem impacts of invasive species. Read more
