  A newly discovered protein encoded by enteroviruses: from mechanism to application
  Dr A Firth, Dr V Lulla
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enteroviruses have single-stranded RNA genomes of ~7.4 kb.
  Development of a high throughput butyrophilin analysis, to complement a holistic immunological analysis tool for clinical diagnosis/prediction of prognosis
  Dr E Soilleux
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Working with Nonacus Ltd with Coeliac UK/ Innovate UK and MRC funding, we have developed a high throughput capture-based sequencing tool for T-cell and…
  Dissecting inclusion biogenesis – the specialised intracellular replicative compartment of Chlamydia trachomatis
  Dr R Hayward
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chlamydia trachomatis remains the principal bacterial cause of sexually transmitted infections worldwide. In Developing nations, ocular infections cause trachoma, a form of blindness, which is designated by the World Health Organisation as a neglected tropical disease.
  Dissecting the role of protein disulphide isomerase in plasmodium, and targeting function to block malarial transmission
  Dr A Blagborough
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is widely accepted that to achieve malaria eradication and long-term control, it will be necessary to use interventions that inhibit the transmission of parasites.
  High-throughput discovery of mechanisms underlying tumour immunosuppression using functional genetics
  Dr R Roychoudhuri
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

T cells have a powerful ability to recognise and kill cancer cells but their function is often suppressed within tumours limiting effective anti-tumour immunity and immunotherapy.
  How is viral DNA sensed by human cells?
  Dr B Ferguson
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of a host to sense and respond to virus infection is largely dependent on the intracellular detection of viral nucleic acids.
  Immune cell-mediated steroidogenesis in regulating cancer immunity
  Dr B Mahata, Prof K Okkenhaug
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Steroidogenesis is a process by which cholesterol is converted into steroid hormones in the adrenal glands, gonads and placenta. The endocrine role of systemic steroid hormones in regulating immune cell function is well-established.
  Inhibition of innate immunity by vaccinia virus: a discovery tool for host restriction factors
  Prof G L Smith
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between viruses and their host reveals a fascinating conflict between host defense and virus evasion. The project concerns vaccinia virus (VACV), the live vaccine used to eradicate smallpox, and how it shuts down host innate defenses.
  Investigating the regulation of coronavirus sub-genomic mRNA transcription, translation and the impact on the host response to infection.
  Dr I Brierley
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a collaborative project between the groups of Professor Ian Brierley (Division of Virology, Cambridge) and Dr Erica Bickerton (Head of the Coronavirus Group, The Pirbright Institute).
  MicroRNA dysregulation in malignant germ cell tumours: more than a biomarker?
  Prof N Coleman
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malignant germ cell tumours (mGCTs) are clinico-pathologically heterogeneous tumours that are the most common cause of cancer deaths in young adult males.
  The Cellular Origin of Human Papillomavirus Associated Neoplasia
  Dr J Doorbar
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human Papillomaviruses (HPV) cause widespread asymptomatic infections in the general population, in addition to a range of cancers which occur at number of well defined epithelial sites.
