Can the natural health supplement Fisetin reverse senescence in vascular cells?

Cellular senescence is a mechanism that is activated in stressed cells to prevent the replication of damaged DNA. Senescent cells are found in vessel walls as well as in other tissues and have been shown to play a role in ageing and age-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease. Read more

Reducing food waste through photomanipulation of leaf senescence

Sustainably enhancing the quality and shelf-life of fresh produce is a major objective for the horticulture industry. One way in which this can be achieved is by delaying senescence-induced chlorophyll breakdown. Read more

PhD Studentship Opportunity: Immuno-metabolism and multi-omics analysis of aging and senescence

This specific project partners with Waters and aims to investigate environmental (external/epigenetic) and physiological factors contributing to healthy aging and potentially those leading to a general decline in the ability of the immune system to mount efficient responses in the face of aging related pathophysiology, such as cancer or infection.

Do shared genetic pathways control drought tolerance and senescence in wheat? (BORRILL_J22CASE)

We need to increase the production of staple crops such as wheat by 50 % by 2050 to meet the global demand for food. However, water scarcity represents a major limiting factor for crop production and poses an increasing risk to global wheat production due to climate change. Read more

Targeting TFEB for the treatment of Osteoarthritis (NDORMS 2022/1)

Population ageing is becoming one of the most significant social transformations of this century which impacts different sectors of society including labour force and financial resources Although the increase in life span is one of the greatest achievements of humanity, age-related diseases, such as Osteoarthritis (OA), limit health span.

Understanding the role of RNaseH2 in genome stability and ageing.

Reduced genome stability and DNA damage are now well-established as drivers of multimorbidity, leading to a number of age associated disorders such as cancer, dementia and inflammatory disease. Read more

The molecular basis of quiescence and implications in tumorigenesis

  Research Group: Cell Cycle Control
Our lab aims to understand how proliferation-quiescence decisions are made in human cells. After cell division, cells either re-enter the cell cycle and proliferate, or exit the cell cycle and enter quiescence. Read more

EASTBIO Variation in ageing rates in the wild

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Ageing is one of the most variable and complex of biological processes and understanding the drivers of variation in the onset and rate of ageing among individuals is an urgent research priority. Read more

EASTBIO The effects of stressful environments on ageing in burying beetles

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Senescence is associated with a gradual deterioration of health and function in humans, other animals, and plants. Ageing can be environmentally plastic, and various evolutionary and physiological arguments have been made to suggest that environments that are more harsh should cause faster rates of ageing.

(BBSRC DTP) How ageing affects the circadian and mechanical regulation of cells and tissues

The World Health Organisation estimates that by 2050, there will be two billion people aged 60 and above. Despite this remarkable progress in extending human life, health issues specific to the ageing body can severely limit the quality of life and well-being of the elderly. Read more

Generating killer cells for immunotherapy against cancer and pathogens

Summary. Natural killer cells (NK) and CD8+ T cells protect us against intracellular pathogens and cancers. This project aims to determine pathways that can drive the growth of particular types of NK and T cells that are optimised to provide better protection from disease. Read more
