Nutritional sensitivity of glucocorticoid dynamics in lean and fat pig breeds

This exciting and unique project addresses the overall hypothesis that lean fast growing pigs have a blunted glucocorticoid (stress hormone) response compared to that of fatter and slower growing pigs in response to a high-calorie diet challenge. Read more

EASTBIO: Inflammatory Fat: Understanding how the immune system drives adipose tissue dysfunction using lipidomics.

This fully funded, 4-year PhD project is part of a competition funded by the. BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership. In obesity adipose tissue can become inflamed with the infiltration of immune cells, particularly macrophages, which surround adipocytes to create crown-like structures. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Fundamental Mechanisms Underpinning Energy Balance and Metabolic Health

Obesity is one of the major healthcare challenges of our time. The major threat is in obesity-related cardiovascular and metabolic disease (such as Type-2 Diabetes), but it also increases the risk of cancer, musculoskeletal disorders (such as osteoarthritis), and worsens response to infectious diseases such as COVID-19.

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. Read more

Tackling the lack of diversity in research: Exploring weight loss approaches to reduce health inequalities in an ageing South Asian population

In South Asian communities, a substantially lower body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference confer equivalent health risk factor profiles to white Europeans (WE), potentially because of a more centralised distribution of body fat (Patel et al. Read more

Circadian clock control of adipocyte metabolism

Obesity is a major public health issue affecting one third of UK adults, and an estimated 2.1 billion individuals worldwide. The role of circadian clock dysfunction in the development of obesity is becoming clear, with disruptive lifestyles (e.g. Read more

Gut/body interactions in intestinal regeneration and tumourigenesis

The adult intestine is a major barrier epithelium and coordinator of multi-organ functions. As such, disruptions to intestinal homeostasis have profound impact in gut and whole organismal health. Read more

Mathematical modelling of cavitation development

Cavitation generation has been much of a mystery for more than a century. A core unresolved challenge is how bubble growth subject to acoustic forcing occurs over millions of cycles of oscillation, which cannot be simulated by any CFD packages. Read more
