The Rhonski project: Examining Rho and Notch signalling in skin development and disease

The skin provides a crucial protective layer between the human body and the outside world. Whilst the epidermis forms a barrier against infection, the inner dermis houses the blood vessels required to sustain the hair follicles and cells contained within both the epidermal and dermal layers.

Microneedle biosensors for rapid and painless disease diagnosis

This project aims to develop rapid disease diagnostics based on transdermal microneedle biosensors. Disease diagnosis often relies on invasive tissue sampling techniques, such as blood sampling or skin biopsies, in order to extract biomarkers for analysis. Read more

Preclinical testing of collagen synthesis inhibitors for fibrotic disease

Fibrotic disease is characterised by an excessive accumulation of collagen within tissues, which then impedes tissue function. Organ fibrosis specifically kidney fibrosis, liver fibrosis, cardiac fibrosis and lung fibrosis have limited treatment options, pose a huge clinical burden and are life-limiting diseases. Read more

Combining laser and ultrasound based molecular delivery strategies for enhanced drug delivery

Overview. This project addresses the critical area of delivering therapeutics to the skin. If successful, the approach will have direct and positive consequences for the treatment of a range of skin diseases, but may also be viewed as a more generic means of drug delivery for treating a much wider range of disease.

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

An investigation on the association of high risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types with colonic adenomata and adenocarcinomas: a UK population based study

This PhD studentship invites application for a study “investigating the association between high risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types and colonic adenomata and adenocarcinomas in a UK population”.  Colorectal cancer (CRC) is an important public health problem worldwide occupying most frequent causes of cancer-related mortality.
