Development and application of an in-silico model of liver function in health and disease.

This project aims to build on two previously successful PhD studentships supervised by Prof’s Bogle and Davies that have developed representative models of liver function addressing the metabolism of lipids (short and medium chain fatty acids) and simple sugars (fructose and glucose). Read more

Understanding why cardiovascular dysfunction is one of the leading causes of mortality in patients with Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver disease (NAFLD)

Background. Liver disease accounts for 3.5% of all global deaths/year (~2 million people) and is the third leading cause of premature death in the UK with some of the highest hospitalisations in the country seen in areas of socioeconomic deprivation. Read more

Defining the biological importance of micro- and nano-plastics on liver and gastrointestinal health

Plastic pollution is ubiquitous and will inevitably lead to human exposure. Plastic litter comes in a variety of sizes, but microplastics (MPs; <5mm) and nanoplastics (NPs; <1000nm) are of particular concern because of their small size and ability to enter organisms and food chains. Read more

The North-East Scotland (NES) Diabetes and Cardiovascular Research Alliance Masters Training Programme (MTP) in cardiovascular and diabetes medicine is an exciting new MTP that will expand interdisciplinary cardiovascular and diabetes research between. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more

Project at University of Surrey: Dietary protein, the microbiota and gut barrier function: a gatekeeper of metabolic & immune health

The gut barrier functions to prevent the passage of bacteria and bacterial products into the systemic blood circulation. If the gut barrier fails, bacterial products can infiltrate bodily tissues, causing metabolic and immune dysfunction. Read more
