Biological rhythms and the dopamine system in cognitive dysfunction

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia are associated with metabolic syndrome, obesity and diabetes. Schizophrenia affects 1.1% of the population and although not the most common psychiatric condition it is arguably the most severe and debilitating. Read more

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.

Precision Medicine DTP - Psoriatic Arthritis, comorbidity and treatment burden: Personalised risk stratification based on risk of adverse clinical outcomes

Background. It has been recognised that patients with psoriatic arthritis experience an increased risk of other long term conditions including hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes(1) as well as multimorbidity (defined as presence of two or more long term conditions)(2). Read more

Sleep, obesity and cardiometabolic health

Association of sleep, obesity and cardiometabolic health across the life course from childhood. About the research project. Cardiometabolic disease (cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide, with premature deaths preventable. Read more

PhD student position available in macronutrition and signaling regulated RNA metabolism

PhD student position available in macronutrition and signaling  regulated RNA metabolism. The main research focus of our laboratory is to understand the participation of RNA processing in the regulation of energy metabolism in the context of obesity and diabetes. . Read more

Extracellular vesicles in health and disease

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP – 5α-Reductases: Mapping pathways of Metabolic Disease

  Research Group: Centre for Cardiovascular Science
Additional supervisors. Prof Li Wei [UCL] & Tom Michoel [University of Bergen]. Background. Glucocorticoid hormones regulate fuel homeostasis and are well recognised to induce cardio-vascular disease in excess1. Read more

Investigating the interactions between diet, obesity and cancer

  Research Group: Metabolism & Cell Growth
Cancer is a systemic disease that associates with a range of host metabolic changes such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cachexia/organ wasting syndrome, each of which alters the host systemic metabolic and nutritional environment. Read more

MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Calmodulin signalling as a potential therapeutic target for COVID-19 infection

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) has emerged in December 2019 in China as the newest member of a family of coronaviruses (CoV) and has rapidly spread worldwide. In approximately 20% of cases, SARS-CoV-2 can invade the respiratory system of humans and cause mild to severe respiratory disorders which have been named coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19).

Investigating the regulation and role of AMPKy2 phosphorylation in vivo

  Research Group: Cellular Stress
AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) plays an important role in maintaining energy homeostasis in eukaryotic cells1,2. In multicellular organisms, the role of AMPK has been adapted to play a role in integrating energy metabolism at an organismal level. Read more
