Innate immune responses to HSV1 in human skin

The aim of this project is to generate new understanding of the ongoing battle between an important human pathogen, herpes simplex virus (HSV), and its physiologically relevant host tissue, the human epidermis. Read more

How does the lung protect itself against influenza?

Respiratory diseases, including influenza and COVID-19 coronavirus, kill large numbers of humans, and animal viruses that can jump to humans (zoonoses) are a serious threat to human health. Read more

Global Analysis of Protein-RNA Interactions during Vaccinia Virus Infection and their Impact on Virus Differentiation and Spread

Vaccination is one of the most effective strategies to prevent disease and stop transmission. Many successful vaccines were obtained by empiric attenuation by repeated passage in animals or cultured cells, becoming in many cases unable to propagate and transmit. Read more

How does ISG15 regulate our innate immune response to viral infection?

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Research in the Hughes lab at the University of St Andrews focuses on antiviral responses and the regulation of innate immunity. As part of our first-line defence against viral infection, our cells produce cytokines, such as interferons (IFN). Read more

Precision Medicine DTP – Antiviral defence mechanisms during early embryonic development

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Additional supervisor. Dr Alfredo Castello [University of Glasgow]. Background. Although virtually all cell types of an adult mammalian organism activate the antiviral type I interferon response upon viral infections, this pathway is silenced during early embryonic development for reasons that are still unknown.

Regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways by adenovirus

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.

WR DTP fully-funded project: Structure and dynamics of enterovirus IRES-ribosome complexes

Enteroviruses (e.g. Poliovirus, Rhinovirus, Coxsackievirus) comprise a diverse group of human and animal pathogens, which together are estimated to cause over one billion infections annually. Read more
