Using stem cells to probe virus infections of neurons

The consequences of virus infections in the brain can be devastating. This project will use cutting-edge stem cell, proteomics and imaging technologies to probe the effects of virus infection upon neurons, focussing on the neurotropic herpesvirus HSV-1. Read more

Saving Cassava : A novel gene in a deadly virus

Cassava brown streak disease (CBSD), caused by the Cassava brown streak viruses (CBSV) causes losses up to 100% and typically >60-70% of root harvest in susceptible varieties, as well as substantial losses through reducing the market value due to necrotic lesions. 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

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
