Showing 1 to 10 of 13
  Structure and Function of Innate Immune Signalling in Mosquito Vectors
  Research Group: Dr M Gangloff
  Dr M Gangloff
Applications accepted all year round
Over the course of a long evolutionary history vector-borne pathogens have developed mechanisms to successfully disrupt natural defences in both their mammalian hosts and insect vectors in order to survive and establish infection.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round
This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  How do malaria parasites sense and respond to DNA damage?
  Dr C Merrick
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
The malaria parasite Plasmodium has a complex lifecycle involving several highly unusual cell cycles. Rather than conventional binary fission, it grows via syncytial modes of replication, producing multinucleate syncytia prior to budding and cytokinesis.
  Understanding Zika virus pathogenesis in human neurons
  Dr N Irigoyen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Increased global travel, urbanization and climate change have dramatically increased the likelihood of encounters with emerging and re-emerging viruses.
  Characterisation of the mechanism of norovirus VPg-dependent RNA synthesis.
  Prof I Goodfellow
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Noroviruses have an impact of >$60 billion pa, yet we have no vaccines or therapeutics. This project will use a combination of molecular and biochemical approaches to dissect norovirus VPg-primed RNA synthesis.
  Characterization of clonal evolution of T-cell lymphoma
  Prof M Q Du
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
It has long been assumed that malignant T-cell lymphoma is a monoclonal disease. i.e. the tumour grows and expands from a single cell.
  Early PI3-mediated translation response during intracellular bacterial and viral infection
  Dr B Chung
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Biotic stresses often occur on short timescales, making rapid response crucial for survival of both host and pathogen. Cells respond to stress by regulating gene expression at multiple steps but especially transcription, translation and protein turnover.
  Understanding the role of the Guanosine Trimethylase TGS1 in Acute myeloid leukaemia
  Dr I Barbieri
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
RNA methylation is a reversible post-translational modification to RNA that epigenetically numerous biological processes. The biological and molecular functions of RNA methylation are generally very poorly understood, both in normal and pathological biological processes.
  Exploring aberrant inflammasome activation in chronic granulomatous disease
  Dr S Webster, Prof C E Bryant
Applications accepted all year round
This project will test the hypothesis. Aberrant inflammasome activation can be caused by mitochondrial ROS mediated NLRP3 inflammasome activation.
