Law at Queen's: Postgraduate Research Opportunities

We have over 100 years of achievement in both education and research, and we offer PhD supervision across the legal field, supporting a range of approaches--from the doctrinal to the sociolegal, comparative, criminological and critical. Read more

Selective targeting of furin for the treatment of fibrotic lung disease.

Furin, a proprotein convertase has been established as a therapeutic target across several disease areas to include chronic airways diseases and infectious disease, such as COVID-19 (reviewed in our recent publication, Douglas et al, 2023). Read more

Developing biodegradable long acting drug delivery systems for the treatment of chronic conditions

Non-adherence to treatment costs the NHS more than £500M each year. Adherence is especially important when treating patients with chronic conditions that require lifetime pharmacological treatment, such as schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, HIV and Alzheimer’s disease. Read more

Peptide-based nanoparticles for brain targeted gene delivery.

Gene therapy has the potential to provide therapeutic benefit to millions of people with neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Delivery into the brain is hampered by the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which limits the efficacy of both conventional and novel therapies at the target site. Read more

Microneedle delivery systems for minimally-invasive patient diagnosis/monitoring

In this project, a novel type of integrated system will be investigated that will by-pass the skin barrier. On its surface will be multiple microscopic needles that pierce the skin without causing any pain – the sensation is said to feel like a cat’s tongue or sharkskin. Read more

Self-Navigating Nanocarriers for Intracellular Protein Delivery

Protein-based therapeutics have shown remarkable success in modulating extracellular targets; however, effective intracellular delivery remains a key challenge in biotherapeutics. Read more

Development of multifunctional biomaterials for urinary catheters to eradicate catheter-associated urinary tract infections

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are among the most common hospital-acquired infections worldwide threatening over 150 million people annually, imposing substantial burdens on the health system. Read more

Designing and evaluating novel nanotherapeutics to enhance the effectiveness of radiotherapy in the treatment of solid cancers.

One in two cancer patients will receive radiotherapy as part of their treatment. For patients with a localised cancer diagnosis effective radiotherapy represents the best chance of a curative outcome, however, is not without risk. Read more
