CHIM - Shigella sonnei in Vietnamese adults - Development funds
<p>Diarrhoea remains a major cause of childhood morbidity and mortality globally. The vast majority of the 2 billion<br> annual diarrhoeal infections occur in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Members of the genus <em>Shigella</em><br> are key agents of diarrhoea in LMICs, and <em>S. sonnei </em>is replacing <em>S. flexneri </em>as the predominant species globally.<br> There is a necessity… more

Malaria Controlled Human Infection Model - application development
<p>We wish to apply for funds to develop the malaria CHIM application. These are for a Co-investigators/stakeholders meeting to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, on 30<sup>th</sup> and 31<sup>st</sup> January 2018 and to support a writing meeting of the PIs in February 2018 in Kilifi, Kenya.</p>

Structural studies of the host-parasite interactions at the heart of malaria pathogenicity
<p>Our proposed activities consist of two major strands.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Firstly we wish to take our research on tour, developing a high quality interactive stall which will allow us to present our findings to those who visit science fairs. We have secured a place at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in July 2018, as the first outing for our display and this provides the deadline… more

Discretionary Award
<p>'Sacred Water' &ndash; an engagement project run by artist Lena Bui, was a creative space for researchers at OUCRU-Nepal and people living in the Kathmandu Valley to discuss health with a focus on water.&nbsp; However, the earthquake of 2015 caused many participants to reflect&nbsp;on a wider view of health. Lena became interested in what people turn to for a sense of wellbeing&nbsp;- cultural… more

MSc in History of Science, Medicine & Technology.
e leprosy in colonial Africa, and the way in which African leprosy settlements were created not only to control and eradicate leprosy, but also with the intention of forming miniature African communities that reflected a European ideal of the integration of "traditional" African society with modern and "civilized" European custom. I am specifically interested in the history of colonial medicine,… more

DNA origami: how do you fold a genome?
<p>Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology mean that it is now possible to identify genetic variants in patients with specific diseases which either cause or alter their risk of developing that disorder. However, linking these variants to the genes they regulate and the symptoms of the condition itself is time-consuming and challenging. The overarching aim of this project is to develop high-… more

Using genetic diversity to map fine-scale epidemiology in malaria
<p>The recent evolution of artemisin-resistant strains of P.falciparum in Southeast Asia have highlighted the need for a deeper understanding of the genetic epidemiology of malaria and for more strategic implementation of malaria control resources. Assessment of the efficacy of these control efforts requires accurate and standardised estimates of epidemological parameters, such as transmission in… more

Statistical models of gene-environment interactions
<p>This PhD focuses on developing statistical methods to discover gene &ndash; environment (G-E) interactions. To date there has been some interest in testing for G-E interactions in animal models, but limited success in uncovering examples of G-E interactions in humans. This is in part due to the problem of exposure assessment, or rather, because representative data on the environment of a numbe… more

Planning meeting for Lancet Commission on Diagnosis
<p>The Lancet Commission on Diagnosis</p> <p>Phase 1 - Planning Meeting</p> <p>Following the publication of The&nbsp;Lancet Series on Pathology in Low and Middle Income &nbsp;countries in March, the Lancet asked me&nbsp;to lead a Lancet Commisison on Diagnosis (Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Imaging). &nbsp;</p> <p>There will be two phases. &nbsp;The first will be a 1.5 day face-to-face… more

Expanding the Inventory Records and Online Profile of Early Modern Medical Books at the Science Museum
<p>The short-term goal of my six-month project is to create a new inventory of the Science Museum&rsquo;s 158 pre-1800 medical books which would contain more up-to-date, detailed information about the contents, physical format and publication circumstances of the predominantly Latin and English codices. I also intend to explore and document links between the books and the museum&rsquo;s large col… more

Returning research results: a Northern European Research Network
<p>The generation of (clinically significant) research results in biobanking and other research activities raises questions about return of these findings, such as: should researchers return this information to participants, and if so, what, when and how should it be returned? While some bioethicists argue that researchers have a duty to return some clinically significant results, in practice thi… more

Defining the innate-like mucosal T cell response to bacterial infection in airways disease
<p>Exacerbations cause most morbidity, mortality and economic costs of asthma. Most are driven by infections and constitute a significant unmet clinical need, particularly in non-eosinophilic disease. The 2017 AMAZES trial showed azithromycin reduced exacerbations in severe asthma, but raises several critical questions, especially, the relevant mechanisms of action, whether anti-microbial, anti-i… more

Dengue Controlled Human Infection Model - Development Grant
<p>Following a positive response to the&nbsp;preliminary submission for grant funding&nbsp;to&nbsp;establish a Dengue Controlled Human Infection Model (Dengue-CHIM )&nbsp;in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, I am submitting this request&nbsp;for a small grant&nbsp;to assist in refining and&nbsp;developing the main proposal prior to&nbsp;final&nbsp;submission in March 2018.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>During … more

Medicine Quality and Public Health Conference 2018
<p>Globally, medicine regulatory authorities, research groups, international organisations, law enforcement agencies and other key stakeholders, including the pharmaceutical industry, are trying to keep patients safe and ensure that the benefits of modern medicine are delivered to patients. However, organisations working in this field tend to be fragmented with the wide diversity of professionals… more

Facing ethics: Identifying ethical issues in computational phenotyping research
<p>Computational phenotyping research uses big data methods to refine the diagnosis of rare genetic diseases. Photographs (and other biomedical data) of people with genetic syndromes are used to train machine-learning algorithms to identify the phenotypic features associated with different disorders. The data are obtained from consortia of clinicians and researchers involved in rare disease resea… more

Improving health outcomes for looked after children and young people
<p>Previous research suggests that looked after children are less likely to be treated in the way that the statutory guidance on promoting the health and well-being of looked after children recommends, and that they receive worse healthcare in comparison to their non-looked after peers. They also have worse experiences of the health service, and due to complex and time consuming policies and proc… more

Exploiting whole genome tagging of trypanosomes to identify new ciliopathy candidate genes in humans
<p>Ciliopathies are a range of human genetic diseases in which the normal functions of cilia/flagella are disrupted or prevented entirely. Ranging from mild to embryonically lethal, these diseases are often difficult to investigate as many do not appear to have clear links with particular genes or molecular mechanisms. This project aims to identify potential ciliopathy protein candidates and thei… more
