Age-related neurodegeneration and dementia: comparison of neuropathological changes and genetic predisposition in diverse species

Dementia is the clinical culmination of a broad range of neurodegenerative processes, resulting in loss of cognitive function. In humans, the risk of dementia progressively increases with advancing age, and it is thus predicted to pose an increasing burden on health and social care due to longer life expectancies. Read more

Investigating the role of the microenvironment in paediatric and adult acute myeloid leukaemia

The incidence of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) increases with age, and in childhood accounts for 20% of all leukaemia. The current overall survival rate in children is only 60-70%, and thereafter falls progressively with age to 5-15% in the elderly. Read more

Does diapause alter epigenetic ageing trajectory in insects?

Project Highlights. Why individuals and species age so differently is an unanswered question in evolutionary biology. Diapause is an example of senescence plasticity, where the same genetics produces different ageing patterns in an organism. Read more

Targeting Redox-regulated Chaperone/Scaffold proteins as a therapeutic approach to prevent age-associated diseases

Project Summary. This iCASE BBSRC DTP studentship provides an exciting opportunity to use a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, and exploit the advantages of different model systems, to elucidate new cell signalling mechanisms that protect against ageing/age-associated diseases. Read more

Understanding how individual differences in hearing impairment and age impact on audiovisual speech perception.

For the one in six people who struggle to hear and thus to communicate, being able to see a talker’s face provides additional information which boosts their ability to understand speech, particularly in noisy environments where hearing aids are often not of much help. Read more

Prediction of early-age cracking in structural concrete

Concrete structures are popularly used to provide open space areas that are often incorporated into the design of sports, social and industrial structures. Read more
