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

In Their Own Voices: Vulnerabilities & Abilities of Women, Children, & Families in Health Research
<p>As REACH enters its second year, we have an exciting opportunity to use our early findings and to expand our use of visual methods to spark wider community and public debate about the ethical issues arising in research with women, children&nbsp;and their families in contexts of poverty and gender inequality. This proposal complements existing Africa and Asia Programme provisions for public eng… more

An Extended Pilot for the Human Cell Atlas: Adult tissues, human development and inflammation-mediated pathologies
<p>The Human Cell Atlas (HCA) is an international, collaborative effort that &ldquo;&hellip;aims to define all human cell types in terms of their distinctive patterns of gene expression, physiological states, developmental trajectories, and location&rdquo;.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Here, we will contribute directly to the first phase of the HCA by forming an &lsquo;extended pilot&rsquo; to implemen… more

Flexible task representations for intelligent behavior
<p>A long research tradition in cognitive neuroscience has investigated the role of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) in flexible goal-directed behaviour. This work has yielded important insights, e.g., that the PFC&rsquo;s coding properties flexibly adapt when task demands change&nbsp;to prioritise goal-relevant information. However,&nbsp;it relies primarily upon the use&nbsp;of familiar and explicitl… more

Metabolic Characterization of Natural Killer T Cell responses to sterile, hypoxic injury
<p>It has been described that&nbsp;ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), such as during&nbsp;organ transplantation,&nbsp;evokes damaging sterile inflammation and secondary tissue injury that is&nbsp;dependent on iNKT cell activation, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive.&nbsp;Similarly, in sickle cell disease (SCD)&nbsp;mice,&nbsp;RBC sickling and widely disseminated microvascular ischemia&n… 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>

Mesh Community Engagement Network
<p>Mesh Community Engagement Network (<u>www.mesh-ce.org</u>) is a collaborative open-access webspace and networking project for people involved in community&nbsp;engagement with global health research (CE). Building on a successful pilot, we propose a new three-year strategic approach with a&nbsp;focus on measuring impact, using a <em>Theory of Change</em>&nbsp;to provide clarity on how we expec… more

Global Environmental (in)Activism: a Multi-sited Ethnography of Industrial Pollution, Illness and Community Resistance in Italy and Taiwan
<p>The research proposed is a multi-sited ethnographic investigation into the relationship between industrial pollution as a health threat and the ongoing social, political, and moral struggle of two communities living in close proximity to polluting sites. Through a comparative study of the people of Taranto, Italy, and Tainan, Taiwan, this project seeks to explore the political dimensions of en… 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
