The role of MicroRNAs in neurodegenerative diseases

We are seeking talented, motivated students with a passion for research in Neuroscience and Neurotrauma to join the team led by Dr Valentina Di Pietro (Dr Valentina Di Pietro - Institute of Inflammation and Ageing - University of Birmingham). Read more

An optimal framework for disease risk prediction and stratification for multi-ethnic populations (ref: SF22/HLS/APP/Chimusa)

The exceptional polygenicity of human traits makes unravelling mechanisms from disease risk prediction models daunting. The development of polygenic risk scores (PRS) methods, their evaluation and clinical utility have been explored almost in European ancestry Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) data sets.

Childhood Obesity - Fully Funded Graduate Research Position

The Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina is currently seeking a PhD level applicant who are interested in pursuing a research‐focused doctoral degree on the topic of childhood obesity. Read more


The project is focused on FoxO1 transcription factor and its role in the pathophysiology of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Although the therapy of CLL has made several remarkable improvements, the disease still remains incurable. Read more

Exploring and understanding inclusivity of LGBTQIA+ recreational athletes in the UK

Researchers, practitioners, and policy makers have shown that physical, mental, and social health research disparities exist between lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA+) populations and others. Read more

Using single cell transcriptomic and blood proteomic data to understand how pancreatic cancer causes diabetes and to find ways to detect the cancer earlier

Pancreatic cancer is the deadliest of the common cancers. Five-year survival remains low at 12%. Sadly for 80% of patients, by the time their cancer is diagnosed it has spread to distant organs making them ineligible for potentially curative surgery. Read more

Understanding the factors that influence psychosocial functioning in older people with bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is classified as a lifelong, recurrent condition, associated with functional decline and a reduction in quality of life (Michalak et al., 2005; Bonnín et al., 2012). Older adults are estimated to represent approximately 25% of people diagnosed with bipolar disorder (Ljubic et al., 2021).

CRISPR/Cas9 probing of virulence factors in dermatophytes

One of the most widespread fungal infections affecting 20-25% of the global population is dermatophytosis. This is caused by fungi that infect the skin, nails, and hair, leading to common conditions such as athlete’s foot or ringworm. Read more

Developing biodegradable long acting drug delivery systems for the treatment of chronic conditions

Non-adherence to treatment costs the NHS more than £500M each year. Adherence is especially important when treating patients with chronic conditions that require lifetime pharmacological treatment, such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, HIV and Alzheimer’s disease. Read more

Predicting the Evolution of Influenza and SARS-CoV-2 Viruses

Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza and SARS-CoV-2 viruses. Read more
