Antiviral RNA-binding proteins

Most clinically important viruses have a genome composed of RNA or generate RNA intermediates during their replication. For this reason, the host cell has developed specialised RNA-binding proteins that detect the presence of the viral RNAs. Read more

Predicting the next pandemic: drivers of the emergence of RNA viruses

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
This project is about identifying candidates for Disease X, the next pandemic pathogen. The Woolhouse and Pedersen labs are taking an ecological and evolutionary approach to research on this hugely topical problem. Read more

EASTBIO Understanding the impact of host sex on viral infection

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
Infectious disease dynamics depend strongly on the ability of individuals to control the pathogen and to transmit it to others. Sex is known to have a large impact on pathogen control, but much less is known about the effect of host sex on disease transmission. Read more

EASTBIO The role of host membrane protein interactions in herpesvirus nuclear egress and SARS-CoV-2 double membrane vesicle formation

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
    Viruses have many critical interactions with host cell membranes that mostly take advantage of host cell proteins. The Schirmer and Graham labs have 2 lines of investigation involving virus interactions with host cell membrane proteins that could be individually or jointly carried further in this PhD project. .

EASTBIO Predicting the next pandemic: drivers of the emergence of RNA viruses

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Our groups have been at the forefront of the global effort to identify future pandemic threats for many years and we introduced the concept of ‘Disease X’ to focus that discussion. Read more

EASTBIO COVID-19 Drug Discovery: Discovering Antiviral Compounds that Inhibit SARS-CoV-2 using a Cell-Based Approach.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health and economic challenge. Despite successful vaccine development and ongoing vaccine rollout, effective treatment options are still urgently required for patients that succumb to serious disease. Read more

EASTBIO Structure-function analysis of a plant virus RNA transport protein

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens which cause $60 billion annual damage to the global agri-economy and threaten sustainable food production. Read more

EASTBIO Understanding the fundamental properties of innate immunity regulation.

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. The innate immune response is mediated by cytokines called type I interferons (IFNs) and is crucial to control viral infections. Read more
