Neurodegenerative disorders

We are currently looking for a PhD candidate to work on the following projects. Understanding enzymes linked to neurodegeneration and antiviral defence. Read more

The potential of circulating diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases

  Research Group: Medicine
Age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including dementias, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), and clinically overlapping conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), are increasing, in line with the aging worldwide population1. Read more

Synaptic dysfunction in Drosophila models of neurodegenerative diseases

Almost a million of people in the UK suffer from neurodegenerative disorders. Alzheimer’s disease (AD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are the most common causes of neurodegenerative dementias. Read more

Can transcranial ultrasound be used to change the course of neurodegenerative disease?

White matter impairments are a major component of various neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease(1,2). White matter is composed of neuronal axons and their encasing myelin; a lipid-rich material produced by the oligodendroglia. Read more

Neuroinflammation, glial cell dysfunction & neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are often associated with chronic neuroinflammation and glial cell dysfunction that acts to exacerbate neuronal damage and loss of synapses. Read more

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. Read more

ERK5 MAPK signalling in Alzheimer’s disease

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Neurodegenerative diseases have devastating effects on individuals’ lives and our society, with no effective treatments available. Read more

Unravelling the role of interneurons in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

In ALS, motoneuron degeneration leads to muscle paralysis. Motoneurons are the final output of the brain since they directly connect to muscles, but their synchronized activation depends on networks of spinal interneurons. Read more

MSc by Research: ADP-ribosylation in dementia and motor neuron disease

ADP-ribosylation is a fundamental posttranslational modification where ADP-ribose is linked on to target proteins by ADP-ribose transferases and removed by the ADP-ribose hydrolases. Read more
