Epigenetic ageing and calorie restriction in an insect model system

This project will help establish an insect model for epigenetic ageing, by analysing the effects of calorie restriction on chronological and epigenetic aging in an important insect model, Nasonia vitripennis, extending our discovery of an epigenetic clock in Nasonia. . Read more

Decoding the epigenetic mechanisms of drug resistance in aggressive breast cancers

Breast cancers pose a major health burden to modern world as being the most common cancer in women. Estrogen receptor (ER), the classical marker of 70% these cancers, is the nuclear receptor important for cancer progression. Read more

Cancer Epigenetics project

Broad Project Summary: Cancer is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Epigenetic changes are now recognised as a hallmark feature of cancer, but our understanding of factors that are responsible for tumour spread still remains limited. Read more

Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks

The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children. Read more

Early life environment changes how organisms age.

This project will help understand why organisms age differently by establishing the effect of early life environments on epigenetic ageing in the model insect, Nasonia vitripennis. Read more

Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies. We are interested in the regulatory pathways that control cell proliferation and cell migration and the events that disrupt this control in multiple types of cancer. Read more

Cellular mechanisms of equal chromosome segregation and genome stability

The PhD project will investigate how chromosomes segregate equally in each cell division through epigenetic regulation of the centromere, and how cells respond in stress conditions to maintain genome instability. Read more

The epigenomic, transcriptional and diagnostic architecture of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by exposure to maternal infection

A fundamental unknown in understanding mechanisms of disease, and therefore improving therapy, is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016). 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.
