  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  Investigating the anti-cancer effect of hop β -acid Lupulone and its synthetic derivatives on breast cancer cells
  Dr G Pirianov
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/biomedical-research-group.
  In vitro, in vivo and ex vivo investigations of the anti-inflammatory properties of culinary herbs when combined with non-herb foods
  Dr E Opara, Dr M Stolinski, Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round
Culinary herbs are foods rich in polyphenols and a significant body of work has reported on their (the foods) many properties as a consequence of these compounds.
  The role of the epigenetic diet in modulating apoptotic cell death in human carcinogenesis (ref: SF18/APP/Panagiotidis)
  Prof M Panagiotidis
Applications accepted all year round
Epigenetic modifications can contribute to carcinogenesis by various means including altering gene expression responsible for evading apoptotic cell death, abnormal cell proliferation, etc.
  Impact of diet on cardiovascular responses to acute mental stress
  Dr C Rendeiro, Dr JJCS Veldhuijzen van Zanten
Applications accepted all year round
Cardiovascular diseases remain the second cause of premature death in the UK. In particular, mental stress is a known important contributing factor to mechanisms underlying cardiovascular events, with mounting evidence suggesting that mental stress can negatively affect human endothelial function (Poitras et al., 2013).
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round
Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
