Physiological basis linking sleep continuity and age-related cognitive deficits: in vivo manipulation and monitoring of activity of layer 5 neurons in the cortex of mice

  Research Group: Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC)
A good night’s sleep is essential to maintain proper mental health. In particular, consolidated periods of sleep (i.e. sleep continuity) seem to be critical for cognition as reported in humans (Della Monica et al., 2018) and rodents (Rolls et al., 2011). Read more

Development and use of advanced optical microscopy to facilitate gene delivery and gene therapy in 3D cardiac disease models

This is an exciting fully funded PhD studentship opportunity exploring the pathogenesis and treatment of human cardiac diseases with a potential for a vast array of 3D tissue engineering applications using advanced optical microscopy techniques. Read more

Face off – Dissecting the role of phase separation in viral replication and antiviral responses

Background. The assembly of membraneless organelles is emerging as a fundamental paradigm for many cellular functions. Among these, stress granules (SGs) play a central role in health and disease by concentrating proteins and RNAs, driving adaption to stressful conditions, including viral infection. Read more

Developing gregarine apicomplexans as aquatic symbiosis model system

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative, seeks to advance the understanding of aquatic symbioses that include microbial partners. Read more

Novel therapeutics in breast, pancreatic and colorectal cancers

The host laboratories based in the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, School of Biosciences and the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Cardiff have developed two novel classes of therapeutic agent for oncology that target two distinct cancer cell pathways. Read more

Impact of dietary components on the intestinal stem cell homeostasis and cancer risk

Bowel cancer is the 4th most common and second biggest cause of cancer mortality. Of the ~14,000 new cases of bowel cancer each year in the UK it is estimated 50% could have been prevented through healthy lifestyle changes. For example, there is strong evidence for a high fibre diet preventing bowel cancer.

Interaction of insecticidal toxin proteins with target membranes

EPSRC funded DTP PhD Studentship within the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Hub “Physics of Life”. The Hub is designed as a cross-disciplinary PhD research and training programme at the physics/life science interface. Read more

Sustainable urban horticulture: managing soils for nutritional crops

Our research has demonstrated that there is potentially enough land in UK urban areas for urban horticulture to make an important contribution to UK fruit and vegetable production1. Read more

Mathematical modelling of herpes simplex virus transmission in 2- and 3- dimensions

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake an EPSRC-funded PhD that will combine experimental work with mathematical modelling to describe the transmission of the human pathogen herpes simplex virus (HSV) in human cells and tissue models, and develop a comprehensive tool for assessing the parameters that influence virus transmission.
