Understanding the role of mucin genetic variation in lung disease

  Research Group: Human & Medical Genetics
Understanding how genetic variation contributes to lung diseases is important in understanding how the disease develops and identifying potential molecular targets for therapy. Read more

Selective targeting of furin for the treatment of fibrotic lung disease.

Furin, a proprotein convertase has been established as a therapeutic target across several disease areas to include chronic airways diseases and infectious disease, such as COVID-19 (reviewed in our recent publication, Douglas et al, 2023). 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).

Modelling the respiratory microbiome in chronic lung disease and healthy ageing

The Respiratory Microbiome Group seeks to understand the interactions between complex communities of bacteria, fungi and viruses with the human respiratory tract in both disease (acute infections and chronic lung disease) and in health or healthy ageing. Read more

Novel regulatory pathways leading to Neutrophil Activation

In chronic lung diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis lung disease or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, the lung is susceptible to destruction of lung tissue by human cells that normally participate in removing bacteria from the lung. Read more

Immune regulation of lung repair, and long-term consequences of infection

This project is one of 14 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (MRS) (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO). Read more

Dysfunctional antifungal potency of the respiratory mucosa in COPD

Inhalation of Aspergillus fumigatus spores cause >3,000,000 chronic and >200,000 invasive diseases annually worldwide. Invasive aspergillosis carries a 50% mortality rate overall, but mortality rate approaches 100% if diagnosis is delayed or missed and it is >75% in certain cohorts of patients, such as COPD sufferers. Read more

MSc by Research: Molecular characterisation of the factors driving lung fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive disease that results in an irreversible decline in lung function.  At present IPF is normally fatal and the median survival is between 2 and 5 years after diagnosis. Read more
