Understanding the links between neurodegenerative diseases and the human microbiota

Dementia is characterised as a syndrome associated with an ongoing decline of brain functioning, with symptoms including memory loss, a decline in mental sharpness, quickness and understanding, and difficulties in carrying out daily tasks. Read more

Normative modelling of resting-state EEG across the lifespan for application in the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease

With a rapidly aging human population worldwide, neurodegenerative diseases represent a pressing medical and societal concern. Given the increase in life expectancy, dementia is expected to affect almost 152 million people by 2050 (Alzheimer’s Disease International, 2018). Read more

AXONAL TRANSPORT OF MITOCHONDRIA AS A THERAPEUTIC TARGET IN ALS

Project description. Investigating axonal transport of mitochondria as a therapeutic target in Neurodegeneration. Applications are being invited for a 3.5-year Basic Science PhD Studentship, starting in October 2024. Read more

Applied optogenetics to study the influence of neuronal activity on neurodegeneration

Neurodegenerative diseases represent a significant and growing challenge to global health, affecting millions worldwide. Despite extensive research efforts, the underlying mechanisms of neurodegeneration are not fully understood, and there is a critical lack of effective treatments. Read more

Investigating the role of RNA dependent DNA repair in childhood cancer

Damage to our genetic material DNA is responsible for a wide range of human diseases including neurodegenerative diseases, haematological diseases, immune deficiencies, early ageing and cancers. Read more

Development of novel lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) for targeted gene delivery to cancer cells

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full-time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science and will be supervised by Dr Roja Hadianamrei and Dr Sassan Hafizi. Read more
