  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.

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  Balancing immunity in the face of variable nutritional resources and natural infection in a wild rodent
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasite infections and resource scarcity are common threats to the wellbeing of wild populations and domestic animals. Chronic helminth infections in particular compete with their hosts for nutritional resources, and are a global cause of productivity loss in livestock, estimated at £1.2 billion.
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  EASTBIO Molecular basis of environmental sensing in fungi and protozoan parasites
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr J Thompson, Dr J Baranovic, Dr E Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the unicellular eukaryotic parasites that cause disease in humans are exquisitely adapted to navigate the complex and dynamic environments that they encounter in their hosts in order to sustain their life cycles and spread infection.
  EASTBIO Sex dimorphisms in innate immunity, inflammatory pathology, and ageing
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr J Regan, Dr S Jenkins
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is the largest risk factor for the developed world’s biggest killers, and the impact of age-related disease is one of society’s foremost challenges.
