Platelets in health, ageing and disease: new diagnostics and treatments

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), and also have roles in immunity, inflammation, cancer metastasis, Alzheimer's disease and a range of infections, such as dengue, HIV-1, malaria, and COVID-19. 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

Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function

Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus. Read more

SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Bioengineering platelets for Blood Transfusions

Platelets are essential elements of the blood responsible for primary haemostasis. It is clear, however, that their role is much wider than just this, playing a critical element in aspects of angiogenesis, wound healing, tissue regeneration, tumour growth and metastasis and inflammation. Read more

Systems level analysis of platelet signalling

We are interested in how intracellular signal transduction networks bring about complex biological behaviours in cells. We do this by combining computational biology with wet laboratory experimentation. 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

Develop single-molecule and super-resolution microscopy imaging technologies in the cardiovascular disease

This project will focus on development, improvement, and application of single-molecule tracking and super-resolution imaging, such as TIRF, HiLo, PALM, STORM, Lattice Light-Sheet Microscopy and other technologies, for the analysis of key proteins in the process of thrombosis and platelet activation, dynamic processes such as molecular conformational changes (i.e. Read more

Diabetes and thrombosis: mechanistic links and novel interventional opportunities.

Thrombosis is the occlusion of blood vessels by uncontrolled blood clotting. Being the cause of death for 70% of diabetes patients, thrombosis is a serious threat in diabetes. Read more
