How do bacteria contribute to aggressive prostate cancer? – A joint lab/bioinformatics PhD studentship

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and ~307,000 men die every year. We know that infectious agents, such as bacteria and viruses, are involved in the development of a variety of cancers such as cervical, stomach, and bladder cancer. Read more

Understanding the role of mosquito vectors in food webs of African birds and bats

Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on the planet, due to their role as vectors of diseases like malaria and dengue. While progress has been made in understanding the ecology of the mosquitoes themselves, there are still many gaps to fill. Read more

Functional and immune characterisation of a novel adhesin of Bordetella pertussis the causative agent of Whooping Cough (REF: RDF22/HLS/APP/MACARTHUR)

The bacterium Bordetella pertussis colonises the trachea of susceptible humans – mainly unvaccinated children – causing pertussis, an infection also commonly known as Whooping cough, is characterised by low-grade fever, a paroxysmal cough leading to the deep intake of breaths resulting in the “whooping” sound, cyanosis, and post-tussive emesis.

Investigating the effects of inflamm-aging on the safety and efficacy of monoclonal antibody based therapies

Our understanding of the immune response in the elderly is still in its infancy. Now, more than ever we need to understand the basic principles of immune response as the environment alters our immune system and the particles it sees. Read more

Establishing new redox-signalling mechanisms as a therapeutic target to prevent age-associated diseases

Project Summary. This iCASE BBSRC DTP studentship provides an exciting opportunity to use a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, and exploit the advantages of different model systems, to elucidate new cell signalling mechanisms that protect against ageing/age-associated diseases. Read more
