  Emerging Infectious Diseases – Surveillance and Biosecurity
  Dr N Marks, Dr P McVeigh
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. A continued increase in both the geographical range of existing pathogens and the transmission of novel pathogens into the human population poses a challenge for the effective control of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and biosecurity.
  Enhancing young people’s cooking and food skills to investigate impact on food engagement, knowledge, skill confidence and diet quality
  Prof M Dean, Prof C Elliott
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. The possession and application of cooking and food skills have numerous health benefits including a greater diet quality, weight control and even longevity of life.

  Prof A Cassidy, Prof J Woodside
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Nutrition and reduction in risk of ill-health is currently centre stage globally, and the recent launch of the EAT-Lancet report showcased that food represents one of the greatest health and environmental challenges of the 21st century and highlighted the urgent need to focus on a high plant food diet.
  Genome scale evolution of biofilm contained Klebsiella pneumoniae in response to sub-lethal antibacterial stress exposure - development of novel biomarkers for near-patient testing
  Prof S Fanning, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

  Dr B Green, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Queuine is the only micronutrient that directly affects translation efficiency and accuracy in eukaryotes, with roles in metabolism and healthy-aging of the brain.
  Investigation and exploration of health and therapeutic benefits of plant-derived secondary metabolites
  Dr C Situ, Prof J Bengoechea
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Plants and their products have revolutionarily shaped human development throughout history. The traditional plant-based medicine continues to play an essential role in the treatment of disease and in healthcare systems in many parts the world.
