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

The impact of military training on the gut microbiome and correlates of human performance (CARDING_Q21DSTL)

The human body plays host to large complex microbial communities including those of the skin, the oral and vaginal mucosae and, most prominently, the gut that are essential for maintaining life-long health. Read more

Machine learning methods for integrating ‘omics data in the study of the human microbiome (QUINCE_E21EPSRC)

This project based in Dr Quince’s group at the Earlham Institute (. https://www.earlham.ac.uk/quince-group). will use machine learning to develop new computational methods for the integrated analysis of metagenomics and metabolomics data from the human microbiome. Read more

Genomic epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2 in East Anglia (PAGE_Q22MMB)

The UK is a world leader in SARS-CoV-2 genome sequencing thanks to the COVID-19 Genomics UK Consortium (COG-UK). The Quadram Institute, in particular the Page group, have been at the forefront of sequencing SARS-CoV-2 genomes with over 60,000 sequenced in 18 months. Read more

Paratyphoid Mary? Salmonella Paratyphi A transmission and characterisation of carrier states (LANGRIDGE_Q22MMB)

Salmonella enterica serovar Paratyphi A (SPA) causes paratyphoid fever, a severe infection increasing in regions of Asia. Between 2016 and 2019, cases per year have increased 17.3% in England, with a strong association of travel to South Asia. Read more

Exploiting human gut microbiome in mucus to combat pathogens (JUGE_Q22MMB)

This PhD studentship provides an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to investigate gut symbiont-pathogen interactions at the mucosal surface and acquire advanced skills in both in silico and in vivo approaches. . Read more

Finding new antibiotics in the soil microbiota (MALONE_J22MMB)

The increase in drug-resistant bacterial infections is a major global health threat. This crisis is exacerbated by a lack of new antibiotics, caused by multiple factors including the frequent rediscovery of known antibiotics. Read more

Developing mechanistic hypotheses for the action of therapeutic diets in the treatment of Crohns disease (QUINCE_E22MMB)

Crohn’s disease (CD) is an incapacitating inflammatory disease of the gut. Dietary therapy is one of the most effective treatments for CD with the advantage of reduced side effects compared to drugs such as steroids. Read more

Improved computational methods for bacterial strain identification

Infections and infectious diseases – including bacterial infections - cost the NHS an estimated £30 billion each year. Key to countering threats to human health from such infections is the rapid and precise identification of novel bacterial strains. Read more
