MAPK signalling pathways regulating the blood brain barrier

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
We invite applications for a 3-year PhD project to investigate cellular signalling regulating the function of the blood brain barrier. Read more

Feeding microbes to protect the brain: does the gut microbiota mediate the risk-reducing effects of a healthy diet on Alzheimer’s disease?

Background. Ways of reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias are critically needed, given the almost total lack of truly effective therapeutic options, even despite newer anti-amyloid drugs1. Read more

Peptide-mediated nanocarrier drug delivery for enhanced brain targeting and treatment of inflammation

This project involves the study of nanoparticles and drug delivery to the brain. The student would be required to make and characterise novel nanoparticles from special lipid molecules of various compositions more suitable for blood-brain barrier (BBB) targeting. Read more

(EPSRC) Biomimetic nanozymes for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) like Parkinson’s (PD) and Alzheimer’s (AD) are a group of disorders that affect the neurons in the brain and spinal cord, leading to a progressive decline in cognitive and motor functions and subsequently to death. Read more

Peptide-based nanoparticles for brain targeted gene delivery.

Gene therapy has the potential to provide therapeutic benefit to millions of people with neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Delivery into the brain is hampered by the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which limits the efficacy of both conventional and novel therapies at the target site. Read more
