  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Host factors determining latency and reactivation of MDV-1 virus
  Dr Y Yao, Dr F Grey
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpesviruses are large dsDNA viruses that cause widespread, lifelong latent infections in different hosts, through multiple virus-host interactions to create a delicate balance between the virus and the host.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  HIV-1 control of the human epigenome
  Prof A McKnight, Dr M Branco
Application Deadline: 22 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses have evolved to navigate cells and take over the cellular processes they need for their own replication. On the other hand the cell will rapidly respond and switch on anti-viral proteins once viral entry is detected.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  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.
