What the flux? Assessing the global ocean biological carbon pump

Project Rationale. CO. 2. taken up from the atmosphere by biological processes in the ocean is transferred into the deep ocean’s “twilight zone” mostly in the form of sinking particles. Read more

Decarbonisation of heating and cooling

Decarbonisation of heating and cooling in buildings can be achieved through switching fuels and transferring the demand from Natural Gas to low carbon electricity. Read more

Inter- and intra-cellular signalling in the development of fibrosis in the hypertensive heart

Project Overview. Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In terms of volume, the normal heart is composed mostly of terminally-differentiated contractile cells (cardiomyocytes), responsible for the pump action of the heart. Read more

Ocean eyes: Developing novel optical chemical measurements of trace elements

Project Advert. Scientific background. The availability of iron (Fe) plays a key role in carbon dioxide drawdown and climate regulation as it can limit phytoplankton growth and the ‘biological pump’ in vast ocean regions. Read more

The role of neutrophil microvesicles in regulation of endothelial cell inflammation

Supervisor(s). Dr Victoria Ridger, Professor Endre Kiss-Toth and Professor Kong Peng Lam. Figures from the World Health Organisation show that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death globally. Read more

Marine Soundscapes - finding and communicating biological signals within acoustic data collected by autonomous vehicles

Project Rationale. Our oceans are increasingly noisy due to increasing anthropogenic activities, particularly shipping. This noisiness impacts marine mammals and some fish species who rely on sound to communicate, find prey, and steer clear of hazards and predators. Read more

Microplastics and carbon sequestration: identifying links and impacts

Project Rationale. The downward sinking flux of marine organic particles (e.g. as marine snow and faecal pellets) removes large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to the deep ocean where it is stored for centuries – a process known as the biological carbon pump (BCP). Read more

Cardiac modelling allows us to understand how healthy and diseased hearts work.

Heart failure is the inability of the heart to efficiently deliver oxygen around the body. Heart failure affects more than 26 million people worldwide. It has multiple causes, including hypertrophic heart, enlarged compartments, etc, when the heart can’t adequately pump and deliver blood and oxygen around the body. Read more

PMCA1 – a potential target for the treatment of heart failure

Our research group is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of heart failure and in doing so identifying potential new targets for its treatment. Read more
