MSc by Research: Non-canonical functions of SRSF protein kinase (SRPK) in pluripotent stem cells

The overarching goal of our research is to identify and characterise the protein kinase signalling pathways that control stem cell pluripotency and differentiation and determine how protein kinase signalling is disrupted to cause human developmental disorders. Read more

Understanding how mutations in the kinase TLK2 cause a neurodevelopmental disorder

Tousled-like kinase 2 (TLK2) was recently identified as a novel genetic locus for a neurodevelopmental disorder. Patients predominantly possess de novo mutations in TLK2, leading to a reduction in its expression or kinase activity. Read more

The role of vitamin D3 in treating skin cancer and preventing drug resistance

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
During the last decade numerous studies have alluded to vitamin D. 3. playing a role in the prevention of cancer. Recent clinical trials looking at the potential role of vitamin D. Read more

The identification of allosteric inhibitors of high value therapeutic targets

This study will develop a novel approach to identify allosteric inhibitor sites on a wide variety of high-value therapeutic targets, including protein kinases, protein phosphatases and small G-proteins. 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. Read more

Is there a Role for Activated Akt in Palatogenesis?

Main Aim. The project will use a medial edge epithelial (MEE) cell line as an in vitro model. These cells will be used to investigate the effects of exogenous TGFβ-3 and activation of Akt on cell migration, epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and apoptosis. Read more

Bioinspired Nanomaterials Based Miniaturised Soft Robots for High Precision Regiospecific Drug Delivery to Malignant Tumours

Cancer is one of the top global public health challenges, estimated to have caused 10M deaths (2020) according to WHO. Throughout the years, standardised therapeutic protocols have been developed and evolved for the treatment of various types of cancers. Read more

Mechanisms underlying the effects of activated protein C (APC) in cardiac muscle

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
APC is an anticoagulant enzyme that also exerts antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, antiapoptotic and a variety of other cytoprotective effects in different tissues, where the mechanism of action is thought to involve the endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) and a protease activated receptor (PAR). Read more

Using chemical-genetics to inhibit and characterise “undruggable” enzymes

The ability to inhibit kinases with small molecule drugs has transformed our understanding of signalling networks. It has allowed us to define the substrates and processes that each kinase controls, and to map how these enzymes cooperate within signalling pathways. Read more
