Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years. Read more

Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs. Read more

Terahertz quantum cascade lasers

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The terahertz frequency range sits between the microwave and mid-infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, but has long resisted exploitation owing… Read more

An intelligent scheme to identify novel drug targets through analysing the DNA repairome in drug resistant cancer?

  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. Proposed supervisory team. Prof Christopher Parris. Theme. Cancer Cell Biology. Summary of the research project. Read more

Multifunctional hybrid porous silica nanoparticles for stimuli-responsive delivery of novel antimicrobial agents

The rapid emergence of multidrug-resistant superbugs poses a serious global health and socioeconomic threat. This project builds upon our expertise in the facile and scalable synthesis of novel, highly uniform porous silica nanoparticles for drug delivery. Read more

An investigation into the effect of team-based learning (TBL) on the development of professionalism in pharmacy students

  Research Group: Education Innovation Research and Development
In 2015 the General Pharmaceutical Council reviewed its Standards of Conduct, Ethics and Performance, aiming to ensure that patients and others are “confident that they are receiving care from professionals who are wholly focused on delivering patient-centred care” (GPhC, 2015). Read more

Formulation of heterogenous solid dispersions produced by spray drying and hot-melt extrusion for improved delivery of amorphous drugs

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Production of the amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) is a one of the methods of improving of physicochemical properties of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) such as its solubility and physicochemical stability. Read more

Conflict and Cooperation in Prokaryote Pangenomes

Prokaryotes mediate most of the biogeochemical cycles on the planet, are responsible for large numbers of diseases and are used in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries to make new and interesting compounds. Read more

Microneedle devices for transdermal drug delivery and disease detection

The skin is a very effective barrier against substance exchange between our body and the external environment. This is necessary to ward off the invasion of pathogens but presents a significant challenge where effective drug absorption across the skin, or extraction of biological samples from the skin, is desired. Read more

Novel design and formulation strategies to enhance drug delivery

The main research activities of my research group concern the improvement of traditional drug formulation and development of novel drug and formulation strategies to enhance bioavailability and patient acceptability. Read more

Selective targeting of proteases for the treatment of chronic airways disease.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are both progressive airways diseases associated with cycles of infection and inflammation, lung tissue destruction and pulmonary decline. Read more
