Ultrastructural analysis of the mouse whipworm as a model for human trichuriasis

Gastrointestinal dwelling nematode parasites are extremely successful parasites of both man and animals infecting over a billion people worldwide and are responsible for considerable morbidity and ill health worldwide. Read more

How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.

Therapeutic targeting of chemokines in inflammation

Protein interactions underlie most biological processes but are challenging to target using small molecule drugs. Many protein interactions are mediated by short-linear-interacting motifs (SLiMs) that range from 3-12 amino acid residues (1, 2). Read more

Iron Biology

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. Read more

Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite relationships

Interactions between parasites and their hosts are one of the major driving forces in ecology and evolution. Social insects, as one of the dominant group of land animals and possessors of complex social systems, provide a fascinating host system within which to study these forces. 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

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

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

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
