Mechanisms controlling gene expression in hypoxia and inflammation

Oxygen is one of the most important molecules for life. Every member of the animal kingdom depends on oxygen to help metabolize its food and drive many critical processes in metabolism. Read more

Spatio-temporal dynamics of reactive oxygen species in mixed biofilms

Bacterial cells typically live in a spatially structured community known as a biofilm. Understanding of how cells in a mixed biofilm modify micro-environments and generate complex temporal environmental variations is still poor. Read more

To feast among the starving: oxygen-limited investigation of Mycobacterium avium.

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of microbial physiology to investigate metabolic and respiratory adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

Harnessing the crosstalk between extracellular matrix stiffness and tissue redox chemistry to modulate the fate of macrophages

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with strong academic background in immunology, chemistry, biology or related area for a multidisciplinary PhD project focused on development of biomaterials with immune modulatory properties with potential applications in immune therapy and vaccination. Read more

The neurophysiological basis of spontaneous fluctuations in neuroimaging signals

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease. Read more

Synthesis of Artificial blood

Inspired by Nature, we have developed a number of porphyrin containing biomimetic macromolecules. These have included a porphyrin cored polymer capable of reversibly binding oxygen. Read more

Redox mediators for long-life lithium-air batteries

Rechargeable non-aqueous lithium-oxygen (Li-O. 2. ) cells (also known as lithium-air cells) could surpass the stored energy of today’s most advanced lithium-ion cells. Read more

NUAcT PhD studentship: Defining the role of histone 3 lysine 4 methyltransferases in the cellular response to hypoxia.

Overview. The supply of oxygen plays a key role in the regulation of cancer and immune cell function. This project will investigate how oxygen levels can control gene expression and the function of cancer and immune cells, with the aim of identifying new drug targets to treat cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

MScR - Early-life stress, susceptibility to mental health disorders and glia: central immune response in a rat model of pre-term birth

Depression and anxiety are the most prevalent mental health disorders affecting 1 in 4 people in the UK. Depression is the second most common cause of disability and together with other mental health disorders costs the UK economy an estimated £105 billion per year. Read more

Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life. Read more

PhD Studentship in Lubrication in an inert gas environment – a new route to sustainability

The useful life of liquid lubricants and greases is limited by the fact that they oxidise in air. This requires regular oil change and disposal, limits the temperatures at which lubricants can be used, and greatly constrains the application of environmentally-friendly vegetable oils. Read more

The role of hypoxia and re-oxygenation on leukocyte and endothelial function

The Maelor Academic Unit of Medical & Surgical Sciences (MAUMSS) is a novel initiative by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), and is designed to encourage and support research within the Health Board and to promote academic activity, basic science and clinical research across North Wales (UK) and beyond.
