Short and long-term genetic and behavioural consequences of traumatic brain injury in fruit flies

General background . How many fingers am I holding up? What day of the week is it? Follow my finger? These three questions are designed to test your sensory, memory and motor neural abilities following an accident; all three systems are affected by a severe deceleration of your brain. Read more

Understanding control of genome folding by cohesin

Our basic goal is to understand how chromatin structure influences gene regulation. Chromatin is generally repressive in nature but its structure is manipulated by cells in a regulated way to determine which genes are potentially transcriptionally active and which genes remain repressed in a given cell type.

Revealing Reactivity in Cancer-Associated Heme Proteins: Novel Time-Resolved Structural Approaches

Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) is a heme-containing enzyme involved in the degradation of tryptophan to kynurenine. Cancer cells upregulate IDO1 to escape normal immune responses and, in many cases, a high expression of IDO1 is connected to poor prognosis. Read more

Chemical energy conversion in biology studied using advanced spectroscopic and structural tools

Redox properties of metal-containing active sites are critically important to many biocatalytic processes. one third of all proteins contain a redox-active metal, and ca 22% of submissions to the Protein Data Bank contain a transition metal. Read more

Natural products in bacterial physiology and chemical interaction

Microbial natural products have diverse chemical structures and bioactivities, which range from cell-cell signalling, nutrient acquisition, antifungal and antibacterial activity to stress resistance (1). Read more

Understanding the role of pigmentation in retinal and vision development

Establishing structure-function correlations in vision development  . The aim of this project is to develop methods to study the relationship between pigmentation and vision development in humans and zebrafish.  . Read more

Nuclear and transcriptional dysregulations during cellular senescence

Cellular senescence, which is characterised by a proliferation arrest, is a driver of ageing (1). Several stresses can induce cellular senescence, including persistent DNA damage, telomere dysfunction, and oncogene activation. Read more

Obtaining insights into how a signalling hub protein Ras activates multiple effectors

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. They are highly conserved from yeast to humans, highlighting their fundamental biological roles. Read more

The Role of Reactive Sulfur Species in the Ageing Heart

Second Supervisor. Prof Melanie Madhani, University of Birmingham. Background . Ageing is a natural and complex biological process that involves the gradual deterioration of cells, tissues, and organ systems over time, thus leading to an increased susceptibility to diseases and mortality.

Molecular level understanding of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

Mycobacterium tuberculosis has evolved to survive and replicate inside macrophages. The project will investigate the molecular mechanisms underpinning adaptation to this specialised intracellular niche. Read more
