Chloroquine/Hydroxychloroquine prevention of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the healthcare setting; a randomised, placebo-controlled prophylaxis study (COPCOV)
There is no proven treatment, chemoprophylaxis or vaccine for COVID-19. This is the most serious pandemic emergency for 100 years. Healthcare workers are being affected disproportionately in the continuing epidemic threatening an imminent breakdown of health services. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are safe and well-tolerated medications which can be taken for years without adverse effects.Bo… more

Human sensitivity to short-wavelength light in non-image-forming vision: Toward a mechanistic understanding of the impact of blue light on sleep and circadian rhythms
<p>In chronobiology and sleep research, a significant proportion of past research studies examining the effects of light on the acute suppression of melatonin and on circadian photoentrainment have exclusively examined male participants, or naturally cycling female participants. The basis for this bias in participant recruitment is empirical evidence that the production of melatonin may be modula… more

Function of novel human T cell subsets in host defence
<p>We are organising an international meeting on unconventional T cells (CD1-MR1: beyond MHC restricted lymphocytes). This is the major meeting for groups investigating these important components of immunity and occurs every 2 years, lasting 4 days. The aim of this proposal is to help support initiatives within this meeting to enhance diversity and inclusion. These include: Bursaries for those wi… more

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>

Innovative biomedical engineering and computational science to improve the management of critical illness in resource-limited settings
<p>Our project&rsquo;s primary objective is to provide proof-of-principle that new technology can help improve the care of critically ill patients with infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. To achieve this objective we will develop a new inter-disciplinary &lsquo;innovations for critical care&rsquo; team within Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU), a Wellcome Africa Asia P… more

Circuit Mechanisms of Learning and Decision Making
<p>Decision making concerns every aspect of our lives. Despite substantial progress in understanding the brain regions involved in learning and decision making, the neuronal circuits that govern choice behaviour have remained elusive. This proposal aims at studying precise neuronal circuits underlying learning and decision making. We will focus on frontostriatal neuronal circuits, and how neuromo… more

Plasmodium vivax Volunteer Infection Studies in Thailand
<p>Vivax malaria remains a major global health problem. Because of the existence of a hypnozoite stage and the clinical relapses this causes, elimination strategies are more difficult to design and implement successfully than for falciparum malaria. Vaccines and new well-tolerated&nbsp;anti-relapse drugs are badly needed. To accelerate vaccine&nbsp;development, we will develop and assess the feas… more

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

Development of compounds that inhibit RAS-effector protein-protein interactions in cancer using a single antibody domain drug surrogate emulator approach
Prof Rabbitts and colleagues from the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Biology have been awarded Seeding Drug Discovery funding to develop small molecules specifically targeting the RAS-effector protein-protein interactions. The RAS family of oncogenes is among the most frequently mutated in human cancers. Using minimal antibody fragments, the group has characterized an anti-RAS VH segment whos… more
