  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Characterising protective local and systemic immune responses to Group A streptococcal throat infection in children
  Prof A Finn, Dr L B Nicholson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Group A streptococcus (GAS) causes infective, invasive and post-infective immune-mediated diseases including serious heart and kidney conditions resulting in significant illness and 0.5-1.5 million deaths/year globally.
  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.
