Is there a Role for Activated Akt in Palatogenesis?

Main Aim. The project will use a medial edge epithelial (MEE) cell line as an in vitro model. These cells will be used to investigate the effects of exogenous TGFβ-3 and activation of Akt on cell migration, epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and apoptosis. Read more

Cancer: Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more

Does the vault particle contribute to chemotherapy resistance in head and neck cancer?

Project description. Head and neck cancer (HNC) has a poor prognosis with a 5-year survival rate of ~50%. Treatment of HNC usually involves a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Read more

Nanoparticle synthesis and application in magnetic field hyperthermia for cancer therapy

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Magnetic field hyperthermia (MFH) is currently undergoing clinical trials for use in humans. The research to date has shown the effectiveness of the approach in cells and animal models and the initial results from human trials are promising. Read more

Investigation of antagonism of multiple RGD-binding integrins as a therapeutic strategy in advanced head and neck cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Background. The integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors which mediate cell-cell and cell-ECM adhesion, and signalling across the cell membrane involved in pathways controlling cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, cell survival and apoptosis. Read more

Exploring a novel neurodevelopmental disease gene using a zebrafish model

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

How do RNA-binding proteins control splice site selection? A multi-disciplinary approach

Almost every protein-coding gene in vertebrates can and does express multiple proteins. This is achieved primarily by RNA splicing, which is an essential step in gene expression in mammals and generates incredible diversity. Read more

Investigating the roles that G protein coupled receptors play in hypertension

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) constitute a very large family of heptahelical, integral membrane proteins that mediate a wide variety of physiological processes ranging from the transmission of light and odorant signals to the mediation of neurotransmission and hormonal actions. Read more

ROLE OF FOXO1 TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR IN B-CELL MALIGNANCIES

The project is focused on FoxO1 transcription factor and its role in the pathophysiology of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Although the therapy of CLL has made several remarkable improvements, the disease still remains incurable. Read more
