CRISPR manipulation of gene expression in retinal organoids to model and rescue human disease

Human pluripotent stem cells can be used in the lab to grow 3D retinal structures called retinal organoids. This allows us to investigate both the early and later events of human eye development and disease. Read more

How do nematodes hijack root development in plants?

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

What is the role of intestinal mucins in health maintenance during ageing?

An increasing proportion of our population falls within the elderly age bracket. As a result, the identification of interventions that help people stay healthy into their old age is one of the most significant challenges facing biomedical research. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP – Defining the impact of androgens on uterine immune cell function during endometrial tissue repair

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Background. Endometrial repair is essential for women’s reproductive health. One in three women in the UK will suffer from a reproductive health problem such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, heavy menstrual bleeding or endometriosis. Read more

Health span extension mediated by the diet and microbiota

This project is available through the MIBTP programme. The successful applicant will join the MIBTP cohort and will take part in all of the training offered by the programme. For further details. Read more

Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more

Behavioural & biological analysis of dissociable aspects of reward processing

  Research Group: Behavioural Neuroscience
It is essential for a healthy organism to respond appropriately to rewarding events (e.g. foods). Thus investigating the biological substrates of reward processing offers key insights into both normal behaviour and the deficits seen in psychiatric disorders. Read more
