Mucin genetic variation in lung disease

Understanding how genetic variation contributes to complex lung disease is important in understanding how the disease develops and identifying potential molecular targets for therapy. Read more

Clinical: Gastroesophageal reflux in respiratory disease: pathogenic role and improved management

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which stomach contents, such as food and acid pass into the gullet/oesophagus causing heartburn. GERD is very common in patients with lung disease, such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis (CF). Read more

The role of extracellular vesicles in pulmonary epithelium

More than 1bn people suffer from acute and chronic lung problems resulting in millions of deaths every year. The respiratory disorders with the most significant impact on public health are asthma, COPD, lung cancer and lung infections1. Read more

Understanding the role of the immune system in progression of fibrosis

The pathogenic mechanism of pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is still not well understood. Initially believed to be a side effect of dysregulated inflammatory processes as the main driver, data now appears not to support this. Read more

Antimicrobial potency of the airway epithelium in health and disease

Background. Human lungs must balance elimination of a myriad of toxic or pathogenic particles inhaled daily with maintenance of tissue homeostasis to avoid lung disease and ultimately respiratory failure. Read more

Understanding disease mechanisms in autoimmune inflammatory muscle disease

The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies are a spectrum of rare autoimmune disorders characterized by inflammation of muscle tissue (myositis), which leads to muscle weakness and fatigue, and heterogeneous systemic organ involvement. Read more

Defining genetic associations in the complex 17q21.31 inversion region to identify potential drug targets

Understanding the basis of genetic associations with common diseases or traits is important both for understanding the etiology of the disease and for developing drugs targeted at particular gene products and pathways. Read more

Exploring the correlates and benefits of specialist referral in asthma: an analysis of routine datasets

  Research Group: Centre for Public Health
The overarching aim is to investigate socioeconomic disparities in asthma, COPD and interstitial lung disease healthcare outcomes within Northern Ireland, and to assess potential disparities in asthma biologic prescription rates across the UK. Read more

Synthesis and Spectroscopic Characterisation of Organobornon Materials

This PhD will focus on development of reliable, high-precision and non-toxic oxygen sensing molecular probes and sensors that can provide vital diagnostic insights into many life altering diseases characterised by hypoxic (oxygen deprivation state) conditions such as cancer, lung disease and inflammatory diseases amongst others.

Manipulating the Gut Lung Axis to treat experimental Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Manipulating the Gut Lung Axis to treat experimental Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. This project will investigate maximally effective microbiome and dietary interventions in experimental and human COPD to treat clinical trial human patients. Read more

Investigating the role of lactate in tuberculosis disease

About the project. We are seeking talented, hard-working and motivated students with a passion for research in Immunology, Metabolism and Infectious diseases to join the team led by Dr Alba Llibre (. Read more

Investigation into the in-vitro lung deposition of liposomal formulations of the dual fixed-dose combination inhaler

  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are diseases associated with the airflow in the lungs (WHO, 2013). Inhalation is the most effective route of administration for treating asthma and COPD (Labiris and Dolovich, 2003). Read more

Repurposing and enriching cardiovascular risk prediction model to identify people at risk of cancer – UCL (part of Health Data Research UK’s Big Data for Complex Disease Driver Programme)

Risk-stratified management of cardiovascular disease (CVD), where people without established disease receive preventative interventions and monitoring based on their 10-years predicted risk, has been highly successful to ensure healthcare resources are allocated to those most likely to benefit.
