Peptide hydrogels as a long-acting multipurpose drug delivery platform for combined contraception and HIV prevention

HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death in women of reproductive age worldwide. HIV and unintended pregnancies are prevalent in developing nations due to the lack of effective female contraceptive choice. Read more

Development of peptide hydrogel as an anticancer drug carrier

Growth in nanotechnologies can now be exploited to enable engineering of new drug delivery systems for enhancing the entrapment of drugs in nano-sized structures with tailored physical properties to suit therapeutic need. Read more

Neuropeptide Research – PhD Position at a World Class Institution

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Characterising the heterogeneity of type 1 diabetes across Bristol

Islet autoantibodies (iAabs) are established markers for type 1 diabetes (T1D) risk and classification. The European Reference Laboratory testing for a broad panel of iAabs (not all routinely available to the NHS) for a series of international studies, is based in Bristol. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis. Read more

Therapeutic targeting of chemokines in inflammation

Protein interactions underlie most biological processes but are challenging to target using small molecule drugs. Many protein interactions are mediated by short-linear-interacting motifs (SLiMs) that range from 3-12 amino acid residues (1, 2). Read more

What really makes a bacterial lipoprotein a real lipoprotein? Important implications for developing or improving lipoprotein-based vaccines

Bacterial lipoproteins have attracted much interest as vaccine candidates over recent years. The lipoprotein, Factor H binding protein, of Neisseria meningitidis for example is the sole antigen of Trumenba, the vaccine developed by Pfizer, and is a major component of the Bexsero vaccine developed by GSK.

Biological role of Stress Hormones

OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland. Read more

Precise, peptide-directed loading of drugs onto therapeutic antibodies for targeted imaging and treatment of tumors.

The PhD project aims to develop a non-covalent technology for loading small molecules and therapeutic enzymes onto monoclonal antibodies thus addressing issues in preparations of antibody-drug conjugates, such as poor yields and non-specific conjugation of the drugs resulting in compromised immunoaffinity.

Electronic switching of peptide self-assembly: new approaches for directing nanofabrication.

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
Biomolecular recognition is considered one of the most promising approaches for high-throughput nanofabrication. For example, the ability of proteins, peptides or DNA to assemble spontaneously into complex and well-defined 3D structures has been exploited for fabricating a range of nano-structured materials and devices.
