Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

Understanding and optimising motor cortex plasticity

Motor learning is a key skill required at all stages of life but is crucially important for recovery and development. A mechanistic understanding of the biological processes that underpin skill acquisition in healthy and pathological states is an important scientific and clinical goal. Read more

The Constitutive Law Establishment of Advanced High Strength Steel based on Machine Learning

Advanced High strength steel sheets have been widely used in automotive body manufacturing in order to achieve lightweight. Constitutive law of the material is affected by many factors, which makes it difficult for the traditional plasticity theory to predict the complex mechanical behaviors accurately and efficiently.

Neuroinflammation, glial cell dysfunction & neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are often associated with chronic neuroinflammation and glial cell dysfunction that acts to exacerbate neuronal damage and loss of synapses. Read more

(CDT Advanced Metallic Systems) Titanium cold dwell fatigue loading - effect of stress concentrations

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems CDT
This project is based at the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester, and is sponsored by Airbus. We are seeking a UK national with a 2.1 or 1st class degree in a STEM discipline. Read more

Practical characterization of contact behaviour for simulating granular flows

The bulk behaviour of granular materials is critical to many industrial processes. Processing equipment such as screw feeders, hoppers, milling machines, pneumatic conveyors, and interventions (vibration, fluidization) are designed based on understandings of this behaviour. Read more

Using epigenetic modifiers in combination with 5-FU based chemotherapy to elicit tumour specific immune responses and immunogenic cell death in colorectal cancer.

HDAC inhibitors (HDACi) are an emergent class of epigenetic modifying agent (EMA), with multi-modal mechanisms-of-action in both tumour and tumour microenvironment (TME). This project aims to understand how these drugs modulate efficacy of 5-FU-based chemotherapy to counteract transcriptional plasticity and immune evasion that underpins emergence of treatment resistance.

Investigating intracellular signalling mechanisms in the hippocampus: implications in memory formation and disease

Rationale. MicroRNAs (miRNA) are non-coding RNAs that mediate the silencing of specific messenger RNAs. miRNAs are involved in the regulation of all cellular processes and they are particularly important in coordinating gene expression and function in neurons (1). Read more
