PhD studentship: Human and livestock influence on tick populations and the environmental hazards of Tick-Borne Pathogens

Reference: 03-06-22. Salary. UKRI-level stipend. Closing date. 17 July 2022. This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join a multidisciplinary team of researchers in a dynamic and diverse research environment. 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

Using microfluidics and flow cytometry to develop novel diagnostics for Leishmaniasis

The Leishmaniases are a group of neglected tropical diseases caused by >20 species of Leishmania parasites that are spread by >90 species of phlebotomine sand flies. 1 billion people in Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Mediterranean are at risk, with the poor and malnourished being disproportionately affected.

Understanding coordination of DNA replication initiation in the African trypanosome

DNA replication is a central cellular reaction, necessary for genome transmission and the propagation of life. To date, structural and mechanistic studies on DNA replication have focused mainly on a small number of eukaryotes, revealing conserved machinery and reactions. Read more

Investigating the cell biology of Neoparamoeba perurans, a causative agent of Amoebic Gill Disease, and its endosymbiont kinetoplastid, Perkinsela.

Amoebic gill disease (AGD), caused by the opportunistic amoebozoan parasite Neoparamoeba perurans, is a major disease in salmonid aquaculture [1-3] and there is an urgent need to mitigate the impact parasitic infections have on both fish welfare and sustainable growth in the sector. Read more

Defining the mechanisms of vaccine mediated resistance against whipworm parasites

Vaccination is one of the greatest advances in global health; however most successful vaccines have been made empirically. We still have little insight into how many vaccines work and the mechanisms by which they trigger protective immune responses. Read more

MSc by Research: 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

Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: The impact of early life programming on resistance to helminths in ruminant livestock

The gut microbiome is integral to the development of a normal immune system (Gensollen et al 2016). Disruption to the microbiome during early life – e.g, via antimicrobials, milk replacer, different diets - has long-lasting impacts on immune function in animals. Read more
