The role of hormone disrupting chemical exposure in the global obesity pandemic.

The incidence of obesity and metabolic diseases such as diabetes has risen dramatically over the past two decades. The United Kingdom is officially the most obese country in Europe with 1 in 5 adults overweight and 1 in 15 adults obese. Read more

Where has all of the carbon gone? Understanding the molecular mechanisms of long-term soil carbon capture

Soils, while unglamorous, form the basis of the terrestrial biosphere and are ultimately the source of the majority of the food that we eat, yet fundamental aspects of how soils form and how they store carbon are poorly understood. Read more

Probing the Dark Transcriptome: Leveraging Third-Generation RNA-Sequencing, Proteomics, and Deep Learning for the Discovery of Expressed Transcripts

This collaborative project with QUB cancer vaccine Spin-Out AilseVax, is focussed on developing computational methodologies for identifying and validating novel tumour-specific antigens (TSAs) in the “dark transcriptome/translatome from multi-omic and mass spectrometry (MS) data. Read more

Across Time and Space - a New Understanding of Pathogenic and Protective Host Responses During Viral Infection.

Despite vaccination and direct-acting antivirals, viral pathogens like influenza viruses and coronaviruses, continue to exert an enormous burden on human health and society, made worse by their pandemic potential. Read more

Toxicological innovation for the safer by design of new energy application materials

The world is very aware now of the dangers that toxic chemicals pose to mammalian health and the environment. Consequently, there is a growing demand to move towards the development of new materials which are safer by design. Read more
