Development of a personalized therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death. Read more

Therapeutic resolution of coronavirus (COVID-19) diseases by natural products

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Coronavirus now labelled as Covid-19 has become a global pandemic affecting around 200 countries. Currently neither any cure nor any vaccine for Covid-19 has been established. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs). 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

Polysialyltransferases as a target in metastatic cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases. Read more

Inflammatory Arthritis in Childhood: Impact, Outcomes and Safety of Treatment

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis is the most common inflammatory arthritis of childhood. Although less common than arthritis in adults, a diagnosis of arthritis in a child can have lasting impacts on that child and their families through their entire lifespan. Read more

Development of novel herbal extracts for treatment of metabolic disarray and neuropathy in rodent models of obesity and diabetes.

  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
Reference No. SHLS20041. Diabetes and obesity levels continue to rise globally, with significant detrimental effects on personal health and wellbeing, social welfare and healthcare budgets. Read more

Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites

Snakebite envenomation (SBE), a high priority neglected tropical disease affects several million people worldwide resulting in as many as 150,000 deaths and around 500,000 permanent disabilities every year. Read more

Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular/inflammatory diseases

"Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke. Read more

Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells. Read more

SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Underlying mechanism of thrombogenesis in patients with severe coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19)

Severe coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) is a disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2). Patients with COVID-19 are at significantly increased risk of thrombosis, which can be a challenge to manage and is associated with elevated mortality and morbidity. Read more

SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Cellular mechanisms underlying acetylcholine roles in cerebellar dependent behaviours.

The cerebellum is the largest sensorimotor structure in the brain and is crucial for motor coordination and learning. Little is known about how acetylcholine modulates cerebellar circuitry, and until our current work nothing was known about the role of cerebellar acetylcholine receptors in behaviour. Read more
