West Nile Virus transmission risk from environmental, animal and human surveillance data

Supervisors. Dr Ilaria Dorigatti (. i.dorigatti@imperial.ac.uk. ; primary supervisor); Dr William Pearse (Department of Life Sciences, Imperial College London); Dr Giovanni Marini (Research and Innvoation Centre, Fondazione Edmund Mach) Department. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP – Antiviral defence mechanisms during early embryonic development

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Additional supervisor. Dr Alfredo Castello [University of Glasgow]. Background. Although virtually all cell types of an adult mammalian organism activate the antiviral type I interferon response upon viral infections, this pathway is silenced during early embryonic development for reasons that are still unknown.

Precision Medicine DTP – Large scale recoding of RNA viruses for live attenuated vaccine development

  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
Additional supervisor. Dr Edward Hutchison [University of Glasgow]. Background. Influenza A virus (IAV) is a globally distributed zoonotic pathogen that in humans causes seasonal winter epidemics as well as frequent pandemics. Read more

Molecular Virology of Tick-borne encephalitis viruses

This opportunity is based in the Virology and Pathogenesis Group within the UK Health Security Agency, which alongside the Rare and Imported Pathogens Laboratory (RIPL) forms a World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Virus Reference and Research (Special Pathogens). Read more

Smart Materials for Equipment-Free Surveillance of Plant Viruses

The productivity and resilience of agricultural systems faces multiple challenges including from climate change, growing consumer demand and global networks that have facilitated the spread of pests and diseases. Read more

How does the lung protect itself against influenza?

Respiratory diseases, including influenza and COVID-19 coronavirus, kill large numbers of humans, and animal viruses that can jump to humans (zoonoses) are a serious threat to human health. Read more

Harnessing promiscuous DNA-modification dependent enzymes used in phage defence

Training Opportunity. This project will appeal to a motivated student who wants experience and training in both an academic setting, and in the world-class research labs of a leading biotechnology company. Read more

Phase transitions underlying viral replication: understanding the selectivity of viral replication factories through the lens of biomolecular condensates

There is an urgent need for new drugs to combat pathogenic viruses. Most existing antivirals inhibit virus attachment/entry or target key enzymes, and new antiviral targets are needed to develop novel treatments and counter antiviral resistance. Read more
