Deciphering the metabolic determinants of bone metastasis in breast cancer

Project Description . Metastasis is the dissemination and formation of secondary tumours at distal sites that causes most of the morbidity and mortality associated with breast cancer and most other cancer types [1, 2]. Read more

RNA-therapeutic approaches for metabolic pathologies

  Research Group: Metabolism & Gene Regulation
Analysis of the proteome and transcriptome has demonstrated the existence of a far greater transcriptomic complexity than previously catalogued. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Mapping genes to metabolic networks: integrating omics for metabolic gene discovery

Specialised metabolism in plants is vital for adaptation and is a valuable source of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. Identifying the genes of plant specialised metabolism provides new insight into plant biology and may also lead to the development of new biotechnological tools. Read more

The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

Determining the relevance of metabolic pathways as a therapeutic target in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) cirrhosis

Commercial partner: . Ochre Bio. , Oxford. Background. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), for which men have a higher propensity, is a spectrum of disease ranging from simple steatosis to inflammation (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis [NASH]), cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks

The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
