Heads and Tails - Tracking the sperm's beating flagellum

Infertility affects 1 in 6 couples, is emotionally devastating, and requires expensive and invasive treatments. Importantly, we place a significant and unequal burden on women, who often require risk-bearing procedures to address what is caused by, in 50% of cases, a male factor. Read more

Sperm have got the bends - elastohydrodynamic modelling of beat generation

Infertility affects 1 in 6 couples, is emotionally devastating, and requires expensive and invasive treatments. Importantly, we place a significant and unequal burden on women, who often require risk-bearing procedures to address what is caused by, in 50% of cases, a male factor. Read more

Biochemical Optimisation of a Male Contraceptive

The development of a reversible and non-hormonal male contraceptive will supplement existing birth control options to achieve a significant impact upon the numbers of unwanted pregnancies, a major global problem. Read more

Sex, males, and hermaphrodites in the scale insect Icerya purchasi

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Summary. Organisms reproduce in diverse ways. Yet it is unclear why and how new reproductive strategies evolve. This project focuses on the only case of hermaphroditism in insects. Read more

Pollinator fertility in a warming world

After the heat waves we experienced this summer, we are starting to see the devastating impacts of climate change. However, most biological predictions of how climate change will impact species are based on the temperatures which are lethal for a species. Read more

Mating strategies in changing environments

Background. Sexual selection is a potent force that drives rapid evolutionary change. Sexual selection often continues after mating, when females mate with multiple males, generating sperm competition and cryptic female choice (collectively “post-copulatory sexual selection” PCSS). Read more

Electrophysiology of menstruation; a multiscale modelling approach

Contractions of the uterus vary during the different phases of the menstrual cycle. These contractions are thought to facilitate transport of sperm for egg fertilisation during the late follicular phase and to aid the menstruation process during menses. Read more

BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Beyond the boundaries of plant sex: the role of the cell wall in fertilisation

During fertilisation in plants, key cells undergo remarkable changes which must involve changes in the cell wall; upon pollen tube arrival at the ovule, one of the synergid cells degenerates while the other fuses with the central cell, and subsequently the pollen tube bursts to release the sperm cells for fusion with the egg cell.
