The influence of a low carbohydrate high fat diet on exercise and performance

Current and long standing nutrition guidance in the UK and most other countries advocate that carbohydrates are essential for the maintenance of health and especially for any individual engaging in regular physical activity or sport performance. Read more

Optimising carbohydrate intake for performance and health in endurance athletes

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF, 2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.

Wrapping virus-like particles in polymer films using protein-carbohydrate interactions

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Polymer films are widely used as barriers to protect objects from their environments or improve their performance.? What if tiny nano- or micron-sized objects could also be wrapped in thin layers of polymer films? Would they also gain benefits from their inclusion in wrappers in the same ways as macroscopic objects do? These questions lead to tantalising possibilities. Read more

Exploring bacterial enzymes as new targets for treating infectious disease

The Ferrier Institute has established a world-class reputation in nature-inspired synthetic carbohydrate chemistry and analysis and has extended its expertise into the areas of synthetic and chemical biology, chemical immunology, and natural product isolation. Read more

In silico glycosylation of AlphaFold protein structural models.

Background. The recent release of the AlphaFold Protein Structure Database by DeepMind and EMBL-EBI has made available to the scientific community highly accurate structural predictions for 20,000 human proteins and those from 20 other biologically relevant organisms. Read more

A ’sweet’ new strategy for tackling superbugs: using chemical enzymology for the discovery and inhibition of glycosyl transferases in multi-drug resistant bacteria

A PhD position is available in the lab of Dr Martin Fascione and Prof Gavin Thomas to work on an ERC Consolidator Grant funded chemical glycobiology project focussed on the discovery and inhibition of novel glycosyl transferase enzymes active on rare pseudaminic acid sugars (1, 2, 3) present on bacterial surfaces.

Developing new cancer therapeutic agents from foodstuff: characterizing galectin interaction with novel inhibitors

Applications will be reviewed until a suitable candidate is appointed. Galectins are a family of carbohydrate-binding proteins that are commonly over-expressed by many types of cancers such as colorectal, lung, breast, prostate cancer and melanoma. Read more
