Studentship (Fixed Term) - Dr Catherine Merrick

From Studentships at the University of Cambridge. Published on Jun 18, 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. Their resistance apparently involves parasite 'dormancy' - possibly via a cell-cycle checkpoint. This project will investigate how Plasmodium responds to DNA damage and how this may be linked to artemisinin resistance.

Applicants should hold or be about to achieve a First or Upper-Second (2.i) class degree in a relevant subject.
