Precision Medicine DTP - Studying biological aging to understand and prevent premature mortality in mental illness

Background. People who experience mental illness have a reduced life expectancy by approximately 15 to 20 years. The bulk of premature mortality is due to deaths from preventable physical diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Read more

Aging before birth: identifying influences of modifiable maternal lifestyle on telomere length

The process of aging begins even before we are born, and there is gaining evidence that some individuals are born biologically older as a consequence of their exposure in utero to adversity. Read more

Biomarker development for intervention studies in aging

Human longevity has increased through improved nutrition, sanitation and healthcare in the last century. Research for extending the human lifespan has recently sped up and the first drug candidates have entered clinical trials. Read more

EASTBIO: Environmental and Genetic control of Healthy Aging Through a Dog’s Life

The Dogslife Project (www.dogslife.ac.uk) is the first large-scale population-based epidemiological study documenting the incidence and prevalence of diseases in dogs over their life course, and the environmental influences that affect them (1). Read more

Identify new drug targets for treating OA by inducing autophagy (NDORMS 2023/2)

Drugs targeting biological drivers of aging face unique translational challenges. In this DPhil, a translational strategy targeting an age-associated disease will be leveraged to advance an immediately clinically relevant intervention. Read more

Understanding how best to measure sleep outcomes in parents of children with a chronic or life-limiting condition / Health and Aging

  Research Group: Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience
Caregivers of children with medical complexity often report sleep problems. The risks of failing to act to improve parent sleep mean that parents struggle to maintain their wider health, their household and the ongoing care of their child. Read more

A correlative bioimaging, force and multiomics platform for skin cell mechanosensing: identification of new responsive proteins and the effects of aging.

The programme is a novel interdisciplinary mechanobiology research project, including training on world-class bioimaging instruments, where the student will learn further in-demand skills in experimental and computational transcriptomics and proteomics. Read more

MSc by Research: ADP-ribosylation in dementia and motor neuron disease

ADP-ribosylation is a fundamental posttranslational modification where ADP-ribose is linked on to target proteins by ADP-ribose transferases and removed by the ADP-ribose hydrolases. Read more

Sustainable means for the removal of emerging pathogens in the tertiary treatment of wastewaters in western and emerging economies

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
21 September 2016 represented a watershed for humanity when the General Assembly of the United Nations declared that ‘Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the biggest threats to global health and endangers other major priorities, such as human development’ (Tell et al, 2019). Read more
