Engineering the waxmoth, Galleria mellonella, as a model for infection, immunity and inflammation – Dr James Wakefield University of Exeter
This project will generate transgenic G. mellonella lines with fluorescent haemocytes, to allow visualisation of the immune response in this non-mammalian model organism. The larvae will be injected with the human fungal pathogen Candida albicans and the haemocytes tracked via time-lapse photography. The aim is to build an evidence base to support the wider adoption of G. mellonella larvae for studying host/pathogen interactions, providing an alternative to the use of mice. We’re looking for an experienced and dynamic Postdoc (Grade E or F) and a 0.5FTE Technician to join the team, alongside an existing PhD student.
