Non-invasive phenotyping of muscle function using multi-nuclear MR

Commercial partner: . RAPID Biomedical GmbH. , Rimpar, Germany. Breathlessness, fatigue on exertion and exercise intolerance are common features of obesity, type II diabetes and heart failure. Read more

Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds. Read more

(MRC DTP) Assessing dynamic changes in temperature and metabolism at the cellular level using supersensitive thermometry

Metabolism sustains all aspects of cellular function and plays a major role in directing fundamental cellular processes, including embryonic development, tissue repair and regeneration, cell division and differentiation, and muscle contraction. Read more

Non-invasive cardiac metabolism assessment using ultra-high field (7T) MR Spectroscopy

My group at the Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR) is focused on development of new methods for cardiac metabolism assessment using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). 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

Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g. Read more

Inter-organ communication in hepatocellular carcinoma development

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (Imperial College London, King’s College London or UCL). Read more

How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.

Opportunities for research studying Diabetes and Endocrinology at the University of Sheffield, Department of Oncology and Metabolism

The Department of Oncology and Metabolism, based in the Medical School, is a multidisciplinary department that has 4 main themes. The Diabetes and Endocrinology research theme has strengths in adrenal disease, diabetes, neuroendocrine tumours and drug development. Read more

Immunotherapy: Manipulating T cell metabolism to improve anti-tumour immunity

The induction of immune responses to tumours can provide long-lasting protection from cancer. In this regard, T cells can suppress tumour growth by directly killing cancer cells and by producing inflammatory cytokines. Read more

Cancer: Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more
