Can we repair brain damage using the immune system?

Successful long-term tissue regeneration of any human organ beyond the experimental state remains elusive. Given that the immune system plays a key role in tissue regeneration, including in the CNS, one of the most promising novel approaches is to integrate endogenous immune mechanisms into regenerative strategies.

(EPSRC DTP) Mapping SUMO interactions in DNA repair using EPR, NMR and molecular modelling

Understanding the process by which DNA double-strand breaks are repaired via non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) is vital for the design and precision of future anti-cancer medicines and the optimisation of CRISPR/Cas9-based gene editing. Read more

Simulations and analysis of DNA strucutre in relation to repair pathways

DNA Sequence context plays an important role in the rate at which Nucleic Excision Repair (NER) is able to excise lesions. Small changes in both nearest and further neighbouring bases has been studied, however, the interactions between DNA-carcinogens and these base contexts is largely unknown. Read more

Structural and functional analysis of DNA double strand break repair.

Eukaryotic cells have evolved complex molecular systems in order to detect and repair double-strand breaks (DSBs) of the DNA helix, which can arise from exposure to genotoxic agents or during normal nucleic acid metabolism. Read more

Identifying immune mechanisms in the CNS as targets for the treatment of paediatric Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Paediatric MS accounts for 2.7-10.5% of the total MS population and can affect children of all ages. Paediatric MS is not curable and as such, is a lifelong debilitating disease that restricts the life quality of affected children for their entire life. Read more

Genome Diversification in Cancer and Adaptive Immunity

Genomic instability (GI) is a hallmark of cancer that plays a central role in its initiation and development. GI can arise as a result of germline and somatic mutations that compromise a cell’s ability to accurately sense, signal or repair DNA damage. Read more

Computer vision and robot control for performing on-wing repair of aero-engines - (ENG - 1398)

Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in manufacturing and On-Wing Technology, The University of Nottingham. Applicants are invited to undertake a 3 year PhD programme in partnership with industry to address key challenges in on-platform manufacturing engineering. Read more

Sprayed self-healing cement composites for repair

OVERVIEW. The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering has seen 100% of its research impact rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, underlining the wide-ranging positive impacts that our research has on the world (REF, 2021). Read more

Development of DNA repair therapeutics to overcome cancer resistance to chemotherapy

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Reduced oxygen supply (hypoxia) is a common feature of cells distant to blood vessels in most solid cancers. It reduces the effectiveness of chemotherapy and promotes cancer aggressiveness and spread. Read more

Does membrane repair fail to alert the immune system to disease?

The cGAMP-synthase cGAS recognises microbial or self-DNA to activate STING and induce the release of pro-inflammatory molecules. But cytoplasmic DNA is also particularly abundant in cancer cells, under the form of genomic structures called ‘micronuclei’. Read more

Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function. Read more
