Role of the stringent response to promote biocide induced antibiotic tolerance in Staphylococcus aureus biofilms.

The selection of antibiotic tolerant bacteria is of emerging concern and is thought to contribute to treatment failure. Our preliminary data supports the hypothesis that widely used biocides can promote such tolerance in the major human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus by activation of the stringent response. Read more

Development of dental caries detection point of care tools

About the project. Dental caries is the most common chronic disease in children and represents a significant disease burden for both children and adults. Read more

Characterising the impact of the microbiome on AMR gene transmission

Research interests/description of main research theme. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major crisis for human medicine. Globally, untreatable bacterial infections are rapidly increasing, leaving us with limited treatment options. Read more

Machine learning methods for 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

Using an interdisciplinary approach to elucidate pollution impacts and antimicrobial resistant pathogen dynamics across terrestrial, estuarine and marine environments

Project Description. The impact of environmental change on pathogen dynamics and AMR evolution from catchment to coast. Coastal environments are particularly vulnerable to chemical and microbial pollution that impact ecosystem services and human health. Read more

Kmer graph representation of pangenomes for rapid pathogen genomic sequence analysis

In order to improve our defenses against the rapid spread of high-risk strains of infectious diseases in the future, we must better leverage the large scale collection and processing of genomic data that is possible with today’s technologies. Read more

Face off – Dissecting the role of phase separation in viral replication and antiviral responses

Background. The assembly of membraneless organelles is emerging as a fundamental paradigm for many cellular functions. Among these, stress granules (SGs) play a central role in health and disease by concentrating proteins and RNAs, driving adaption to stressful conditions, including viral infection. Read more

Gut microbiome in Parkinson Disease and application of machine learning to gut microbiome

Growing evidence indicates a connection between Parkinsons’ Disease (PD) and the gut. Intestinal disorders, including constipation and inflammatory bowel disease, often precede diagnostic motor symptoms by decades. Read more
