Understanding Spinal Cord Regeneration: The role of dynamic gene expression

Spinal cord injury(SCI) paralysis is a devastating disease that affects at least 2500 people per year in the UK. It carries substantial individual and societal costs with most SCI sufferers experiencing chronic pain. Read more

Functions of cyclin-dependent kinase 11 (CDK11) in regulation of gene expression and tumorigenesis

Doctoral study program. Life Sciences. Research area. RNA/nucleic acids research in health, cancer biology. CDK11 is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues and the CDK11 null mouse is lethal at an early stage of development indicating an important role for Cdk11 in the adult as well as during development.

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

Stochastic modelling and inference for live-cell gene expression time-series data to unravel the mechanisms of stem cell differentiation

  Research Group: Division of Statistics
This project will develop statistical methodology for noisy time-series data and stochastic computational models to analyse live-cell imaging data provided by the lab of our collaborator Dr Cerys Manning at the University of Manchester. Read more

Mechanisms controlling gene expression in hypoxia and inflammation

Oxygen is one of the most important molecules for life. Every member of the animal kingdom depends on oxygen to help metabolize its food and drive many critical processes in metabolism. Read more

MSc By Research: Understanding the mechanism of an essential nematode gene expression process

The MSc by Research programme at the University of Aberdeen is for students interested in a research-intensive master's degree. It is designed specifically to enhance your skills for a PhD or research career. Read more

Short and long-term genetic and behavioural consequences of traumatic brain injury in fruit flies

General background . How many fingers am I holding up? What day of the week is it? Follow my finger? These three questions are designed to test your sensory, memory and motor neural abilities following an accident; all three systems are affected by a severe deceleration of your brain. Read more

Gene therapy for neuromuscular diseases

We are accepting candidatures for PhD students enthusiastic about finding cures for neuromuscular diseases or willing to explore and learn gene therapy technologies using models of neuromuscular diseases. 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.

Exploring the role of tryptophan metabolism in schizophrenia pathogenesis

L-kynurenine (KYN) and kynurenic acid (KYNA) are metabolites of the kynurenine pathway (KP) of tryptophan degradation and have been found to be increased in the brains of patients with schizophrenia. Read more
