Studentship (Fixed Term) - Dr Catherine Merrick

Department of Pathology
Closes: 
Friday, 26 July, 2019

The malaria parasite Plasmodium has a complex lifecycle involving several highly unusual cell cycles. Rather than conventional binary fission, it grows via syncytial modes of replication, producing multinucleate syncytia prior to budding and cytokinesis. This presumably requires unusual, sophisticated regulators of DNA replication, DNA repair and cell-cycle checkpoints, yet these are very poorly understood. The current first-line antimalarial drug, artemisinin, can cause DNA damage and drug-resistant parasites have recently arisen.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability in children and young adults globally. Treatment is determined by clinicians on the basis of clinical characteristics and imaging. However, the effects of trauma to the brain are not static; in fact, brain injury usually evolves during the first hours to weeks after trauma. Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is a procedure whereby part of the skull is removed and the underlying dura mater is opened.
