Harnessing the gut-liver axis to improve response rates to immunotherapeutic strategies in liver cancer

Background. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the second leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. Importantly, this cancer is generally diagnosed at the late stages of disease and less than 15% of these patients survive beyond 5 years, constituting a major global health problem. Read more

Meals for macrophages – investigating how macrophages engulf and process dying cells in vivo

Supervisors. Iwan Evans (primary supervisor); Phil Elks and Simon Johnston (secondary supervisors). Project details. A critical role for phagocytic cells such as macrophages is the engulfment and subsequent degradation of dying cells and debris. Read more

Structure and function of Batten disease proteins

The neuronal ceroid lipofucscinoses are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders with primarily childhood onset. The most common form, also known as Batten disease or CLN3 disease, is caused by recessively inherited mutation in the CLN3 gene. Read more

Variational approaches for imaging tasks in cell biology

The goal of this project is to develop strategies for cell segmentation, classification and tracking through variational deep learning techniques approaches that enable estimation of uncertainties in achieving these tasks. Read more

Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses. Read more

Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells

Breast cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation. Read more

Using ex-vivo genetic systems as models to detect genetic susceptibility to co-morbidities in Covid 19 infection, and to test specific anti-inflammatory / antiviral drugs in Covid 19 infection

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Research has shown that certain individuals are more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2. Approximately, 20–51% of COVID-19 patients presented with a least one co-morbidity on admission, with diabetes (10–20%) hypertension (10–15%) and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases (7–40%) being most prevalent.
