Investigating the link between chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease.

Research interests/description of main research theme.  Patients with chronic kidney disease are 40% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, however, mechanisms driving the cardiovascular pathogenesis are unclear. Read more

Investigating the mechanisms for cardiac fibrosis development and reversal

Research interests/description of main research theme. Fibrosis is a hard to treat condition of major socioeconomic importance, with ~45% of all deaths in the developed world being attributed to some type of chronic fibro-proliferative disease and is exemplified by heart disease. Read more

The BCAT1 CXXC Motif and Oncogenesis in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia

The BCAT1 gene is implicated in the pathogenesis of many cancer types, including acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)1–4. Recently, our group identified a novel antioxidant role for BCAT1 in AML cells5. Read more

Development of a novel AI model for cardiovascular disease risk prediction by analysing retinal vascular structure and functional changes in blood flow

The Department of Eye and Vision Sciences at the University of Liverpool is inviting PhD candidates who are highly motivated in developing novel risk prediction model of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by analysing retinal images, contributing to a better understanding of relationship between the cardiovascular disease and the functional changes in blood flow.

The INDICO-II Study – Effects of Body Composition and Dietary Improvement on Cell Membrane Dynamics and their Relationship with the Aetiology of Type II Diabetes

The InDiCo Study (Inflammation, Diets, body Composition) is a pre-clinical study conducted at the University of Worcester. The InDiCo Study is currently unravelling links between diets that favour a pro-inflammatory environment with biomarkers of cell function and body composition. Read more

Prognostic Markers in Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is the ninth most common malignant disease in the world (Ferlay et al., 2015). Following removal of diseased tissue, cancer reoccurs in approximately 40% of patients and in 8% it metastasises into other tissues. Read more

In silico modelling of endocannabinoid evolution

In the brain, the endocannabinoid (eCB) system maintains adequate neurotransmission (Lu and Mackie 2016). Indeed, the eCB system provides a negative feedback mechanism, preventing over-activation of synaptic transmission. Read more
