Wearable Sample Collection for Biosensing

Measurement of low abundance proteins is key for enabling early detection of diseases [1]. A widely used method for the measurement of low abundance proteins is enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) [2]. Read more

Endothelial glycocalyx damage as a therapeutic target in sepsis-associated Acute Kidney Injury

Sepsis is the leading cause of acute kidney injury (sAKI), associated with high morbidity and mortality.1,2 Unfortunately, there is no treatment for sAKI, current therapies are nonspecific and supportive of the vital organ systems in the hope the kidney will recover. Read more

Diagnostics for FMF patients and carrier survival in pandemics

Background. Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is a rare inherited genetic disease where patients acquire a mutation on the pyrin gene leading to excessive inflammasome activation and excessive inflammation. Read more

Integrating Intelligence: Smart Textiles for Retrofitting and Monitoring Cultural Heritage Buildings

3 Year self funded project. The doctoral project will complete the activities of a European Union project focused on advancing hybrid structural retrofit solutions based on smart textiles with customized structural health monitoring for masonry cultural heritage building envelopes. Read more

Role of mechanical signals in a 3D human model of alveolar differentiation

Alveolar epithelial type I (AT1) and type II (AT2) cells are essential for normal lung function following birth. Abnormal differentiation of AT1 and AT2 cells during development results in pulmonary pathology with associated neonatal mortality and long-term morbidity. Read more

Manipulation of neuroimmune responses and behaviour by infectious agents

This project is available exclusively to self-funded students who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. The project focuses on how infectious agents modify the individuals that they infect and how neuroimmune responses to infection moderate behaviour changes in warm-blooded animals and humans.

Using single cell transcriptomic and blood proteomic data to understand how pancreatic cancer causes diabetes and to find ways to detect the cancer earlier

Pancreatic cancer is the deadliest of the common cancers. Five-year survival remains low at 12%. Sadly for 80% of patients, by the time their cancer is diagnosed it has spread to distant organs making them ineligible for potentially curative surgery. Read more

Investigating the metabolic link between leukaemia and heart failure (RUSHWORTHS_U24BIGC)

Primary supervisor - Dr Stuart Rushworth. Secondary supervisor - Dr James Smith. Rushworth Lab. This 4-year PhD project funded by the Big C cancer charity represents an exciting opportunity to develop and conduct research at the forefront of cancer research. Read more

SLS 3: Investigating the anti-inflammatory effects of artemisinin compounds on macrophages under systemic inflammatory conditions

Artemisinin compounds are safe and effective antimalarials. Recent evidence in our lab has shown these compounds also exert a potent anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting neutrophil migration and the release of cytokines, chemokines and neutrophil extracellular traps. 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
