Understanding the ecological and evolutionary effects of heatwaves in tropical species and ecological communities

Heatwaves are considered one of the most threatening processes for our plants and animal species as the Earth’s climate warms. There is much to understand about how our species and the ecological communities they form will change and adapt through heatwaves. Read more

Molecular Strategies for Mosquito Monitoring and Surveillance (SETU_2024_238)

Project Key Words. Mosquitoes; Molecular Ecology; Surveillance. Post summary. Mosquitoes, vectors of numerous diseases, are migrating and establishing in new regions, including Ireland. Read more

Biologically Inspired Design and Simulation of Neuromorphic Drone Control

NTHU-UoL Dual PhD Programme between National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan and the University of Liverpool in the UK is a well-established programme, where students spending 2 years at both institutions. Read more

BBSRC NLD Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding host-parasite interactions in the honey bee

Insect pollinators are necessary for the reproductive success of 88% of flowering plants globally. Managed Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) offer mobile pollination services to complement wild pollinators and contribute to this ecosystem service. Read more

Cryo-EM Structure and Function of Membrane Proteins Involved in Human Diseases

While membrane proteins only make up around 20% of the proteome, they constitute around 60% of drug targets. However, high resolution structural information is severely lacking for them, with only about 2% of the structures deposited in the public protein database (PDB) being annotated as membrane proteins.

Early life environment changes how organisms age.

This project will help understand why organisms age differently by establishing the effect of early life environments on epigenetic ageing in the model insect, Nasonia vitripennis. Read more

Go On, Disturb the Flow

Supervisory Team. Dr. Swathi Krishna, Prof. Bharath Ganapathisubramani. Project description. If you are a student of aerodynamics, chances are that you have drawn a conventional airfoil with nice, laminar incoming flow at some point. Read more

Structure and function of enzyme complexes involved in post-transcriptional gene regulation

Many proteins in human cells function as part of high molecular weight multi-subunit assemblies. The structure and function of such large molecular machines is often difficult to characterise due to their complexity, low abundance and structural dynamics. Read more
