PhD Studentship - Warwick Medical School BMS

Title: How similar is Bacillus cereus G9241 to Bacillus anthracis?

Value: This WCPRS PhD studentship joint with DSTL (MoD) offers an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (£14,777 for the 2018/2019 academic year) and covers full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate for 3.5 years.

Deadline: The closing date for applications is 1st September 2018

Project: One of the most feared bacterial pathogens is Bacillus anthracis (Anthrax). Other closely related members of the genus are either commensals or pathogens of invertebrates. B.anthracis has undergone genomic degradation from a recent B. cereus ancestor, the consequence of the acquisition of mammalian virulence plasmid pX01 that locked it into a mammalian disease cycle. Interestingly the B. cereus G9241 isolate, which can cause an illness resembling inhalation anthrax, is able to flip between an ancestral insect pathogenic state and a serious human disease state. This molecular microbiology project will focus on understanding the molecular adaptations that make this possible.

Project: There is an urgent need for re-design of the care pathways focusing on new integrated models of health delivery. This requires understanding of disease-treatment profiles of patients. Employing discovery-driven analysis of temporal disease progression patterns using data from EHRs, this project will investigate disease correlations and temporal disease progression (trajectories), especially for high risk groups of patients such as cancer and mental health patients, exhibiting higher-than-average readmission rates due to high level of co-morbidities. Analysis of lab results from blood tests will enable identification of key tests important for signposting and predicting co-morbidity journey and improve decision making. Analysis of such trajectory analyses may be useful for predicting and preventing future diseases and clinical events of individual patients.

Applicants should submit their CV and a personal statement explaining why they are suitable for this PhD studentship to Professor Dimitris Grammatopoulos on e-mail: D.Grammatopoulos@warwick.ac.uk and also apply for admission to study at the University here by the deadline above.
