Identifying novel regulators of haematopoiesis using flies

Supervisors. Iwan Evans (primary supervisor); Steve Brown (Biosciences, secondary supervisor). Project details. Control of blood cell proliferation, survival and activation is critical to the health of an organism. Read more

Meals for macrophages – investigating how macrophages engulf and process dying cells in vivo

Supervisors. Iwan Evans (primary supervisor); Phil Elks and Simon Johnston (secondary supervisors). Project details. A critical role for phagocytic cells such as macrophages is the engulfment and subsequent degradation of dying cells and debris. Read more

Investigating the control and function of macrophage subtypes using Drosophila melanogaster

Supervisor(s). Iwan Evans (Primary Supervisor, IICD) and Martin Zeidler (Second Supervisor, Biosciences). Project details. The phagocytic white blood cells known as macrophages are a highly heterogeneous population of cells. Read more

Experimental approaches to the evolution of anisogamy in a single celled alga

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on the evolutionary biology of anisogamy. Anisogamy is the difference in size between male and female gametes and is the driver of sexual selection and the evolution of the sexes. Read more

Are macrophages the heroes or villains of infection control?

The field of host pathogen interactions has never been more important. From the recent Covid19 pandemic to the causes of cancer and neurodegenerative disease host pathogen interactions underpin the pathology of many important diseases. Read more

Self-funded research project: Quality-distance trade-offs in resource-sharing networks of wood ants

Self-funded MSc by Research. Quality-distance trade-offs in resource-sharing networks of wood ants. Background. Many animals collect resources and defend them from others; peaceful sharing of resources between groups is very rare. Read more

Understanding the role of livestock management on invertebrate communities of wet pastures

The supervisory team comprises. Glyn Barrett (School of Biological Sciences at the University of Reading), Robin Buxton (Patsy Wood Trust) and Ben Woodcock (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology). Read more

The role of coastal ichthyoplankton and zooplankton to the ecosystem function of the Falkland Islands marine environment

The waters around the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic are nutrient rich and highly productive, with an oceanography defined by a mix of the cold waters from the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and the southward flowing Brazil Current. Read more

Modern human variation as a model for locomotor evolution in ancestral hominins

The transition to terrestrial bipedalism represents a defining episode in the history of our species. Understanding how, when, and why upright bipedalism evolved in hominins requires the biomechanics of fossil organisms to be analysed. Read more
