  Developing microRNA treatments for high impact viral infections with limited anti-virals
  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
  Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie, Dr J Butcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference. SHLS20039. Lower respiratory tract infections and diarrhoeal infections are the 2 most common causes of death in low income countries and the 4th and 9th most common causes of death globally, with viral infections making up a significant proportion of these.
  Potential therapeutic effects of natural products in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical cancers
  Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women worldwide. Infection caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), especially type 16 and 18 are implicated in the etiology of most cervical cancers.
  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
  Bacteriophage role in the establishment of preterm infants’ gut microbiota (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH3)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Survival of very preterm infants has increased over the last 20 years, but late onset sepsis (LOS) and necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) remain a major cause of death and ongoing developmental problems in this population.
  Bioprospecting & biotechnology - mining the Polar microbial metagenome (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE2)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to exploit new and existing Polar microbial metagenomic libraries for bioprospecting and biotechnology. Using a wide range of diverse molecular techniques, we will research the distribution of particularly useful (e.g.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
  Phage therapy as a treatment of Equine Strangles, and causative bacterial pathogen Streptococcus equi (ref: SF20/APP/SMITH4)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Streptococcus equi is an important equine bacterial pathogen causing the disease ‘strangles’, which affects both Thoroughbred and non-Thoroughbred horses around the world.
  Population-wide predictive pharmacogenomics for targeted RNA-cleaving and genome editing therapeutics (GEdit-SEQ) (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS3)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last decade a sleuth of interventions based on gene therapy and oligonucleotide therapeutics have received regulatory approval, paving the way for the era of personalised and N-of-1 medicine.
  Temperate bacteriophages and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH2)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial genomes are studded with prophage regions, some that can be stimulated to produce active phages that horizontally transfer their genomes between related bacterial species.
  The role of bacteriophages in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in Chronic Respiratory disease. (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH1)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a key opportunistic respiratory pathogen in patients with cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.
  Understanding the effects of lung disease and vaping to the lung through breath-based bioanalytics (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS4)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your breath contains a vast amount of information about you. whether you’ve had a drink, damaged your liver, your blood blood glucose levels, even type of breast cancer treatment can be assessed through breath.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. They are seen as a promising alternative to antibiotics, particularly as multi-resistant bacterial strains are becoming more widespread and could one day render existing antibiotic therapies ineffective.
  The respiratory metagenome during exacerbations of asthma
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson, Dr S Megremis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is an international pandemic, with 10% or more of the global population having experience asthma symptoms some time in life.
  Regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways by adenovirus
  Dr A S Turnell, Dr C McCabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses with a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long served as a faithful model for dissecting the molecular basis of key cellular signalling pathways that regulate fundamental biological processes such as cell growth, cell differentiation and cell death.
