About the Project

The purpose of this project is to determine in real time and at the single cell level, the different levels of iron experienced by Salmonella in the microenvironments encountered during infection. The iron experienced by Salmonella will be assessed in the absence of host epithelial cells, macrophages and dendritic cells; upon early contact with these host cells; during the early and late intracellular stages in each host cell and during engulfment of Salmonella containing cells undergoing apoptosis.

We are an equal opportunities employer and particularly welcome applications for Ph.D. places from women, minority ethnic and other under-represented groups.
