Triple whammy - breeding wheat for increased winter growth rate

Crop root growth has generated significant interest with regard to net zero agriculture, because increasing root mass captures more carbon in the soil, and leads to more effective uptake of nitrogenous fertilizer. Read more

Detecting and Quantifying Hydrogen Isotopes in Nuclear Fusion Breeding Materials using Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Future fusion power reactors such as the UK’s STEP reactor, due to begin construction in the next 10 years, will require the tritium fuel to be generated (bred), extracted, separated, and regenerated into new fueling (either pellets or gas) prior to (re-)introduction into the fusion core.

Pathways to a healthy lifespan: investigating the exceptional fertility of Naked Mole Rats

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
As women age, their reproductive system undertakes significant changes that impact on their fertility and overall health. Despite its importance to society, research that could delay or limit these impacts on women’s health is held back by a lack of suitable models. Read more

Antimicrobial dressings that use invisible light to fight wound infection

Complex wounds (e.g. leg ulcers) are a common condition that produces high levels of morbidity. With >1.6 per 1000 of the UK population affected by complex wounds at any one time, the estimated annual cost to the NHS is >£5 billion. Read more

Photosynthetic Metabolite Exchange (PHOMEX)

Project Description. The aim of PHOMEX is to understand the main limitations of C. 4. plants – dehydration and chilling. Photosynthesis is the primary production of food, supporting human, marine and terrestrial life. Read more

Developing synthetic microbial communities for the control of pea downy mildew

Demand for food production is increasing due to growing global population, reduced land availability for agriculture, concern over the effects of the environment on agriculture, and decreasing yield reliability because of climate change. Read more
