Rewiring cell signalling by targeted protein degradation and dephosphorylation

Post-translational modifications on proteins, such as reversible ubiquitylation and phosphorylation, are fundamental to controlling cellular signalling through regulation of protein stability and function. Read more

Degrade or die

The Rousseau lab is interested in decoding how protein degradation by the proteasome is regulated in cells so that accumulation of unfolded, misfolded, or damaged proteins can be cleared before they become deleterious. Read more

Self-Navigating Nanocarriers for Intracellular Protein Delivery

Protein-based therapeutics have shown remarkable success in modulating extracellular targets; however, effective intracellular delivery remains a key challenge in biotherapeutics. Read more

Peptide-based nanoparticles for brain targeted gene delivery

Gene therapy has the potential to provide therapeutic benefit to millions of people with neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Delivery into the brain is hampered by the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which limits the efficacy of both conventional and novel therapies at the target site. Read more

Doctoral student position for: Imaging and Characterization of Early Biomarker for Alzheimer’s Disease

Applications are invited for four years (48 months) full-time doctoral student position starting at 1st May 2023 at the earliest (and no later than 31st August 2023) in University of Oulu, Finland. Read more

MSc by Research: Deciphering underlying pathways and impact on LRRK2 signalling network in hereditary Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative condition with no cure and complex aetiology. Around 5-10% a PD cases can be attributed to a monogenetic cause, including LRRK2, while for another ~ 10% of familial cases, the underlying genetic causes have yet to be identified. Read more

MSc by Research: Degrade or die: Understanding proteasome regulation upon stress

The Rousseau lab is interested in decoding how protein degradation by the proteasome is regulated in cells so that accumulation of unfolded, misfolded, or damaged proteins can be cleared before they become deleterious. Read more

University of Bath URSA project: Development of innovative catalytic nanostructures for the next generation battery-free healthcare devices

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the. University of Bath URSA competition. Project. Every year chronic diseases, including diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases, cause 40 million deaths worldwide. Read more

The role of extracellular vesicles in pulmonary epithelium

More than 1bn people suffer from acute and chronic lung problems resulting in millions of deaths every year. The respiratory disorders with the most significant impact on public health are asthma, COPD, lung cancer and lung infections1. Read more

Identification of phosphatases that inactivate the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor Ire1

A self-funded PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr. Martin Schröder in the Department of Biosciences at Durham University to study stress signalling mechanisms originating from the endoplasmic reticulum. Read more

Decoding Speech using Invasive Brain-Computer Interfaces

For individuals who have impaired speech or complete loss of speech as a result of neurodegenerative diseases such as motor neurone disease (MND) or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), there is an urgent need to develop revolutionary technologies using the latest advances in automatic speech recognition (ASR) and brain signal processing (BSP). Read more

Structure and function of Batten disease proteins

The neuronal ceroid lipofucscinoses are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders with primarily childhood onset. The most common form, also known as Batten disease or CLN3 disease, is caused by recessively inherited mutation in the CLN3 gene. Read more
