Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular/inflammatory diseases

Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke. Read more

Characterising blood-brain barrier formation and function using zebrafish to understand human vascular hyperpermeability

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a highly selectively permeable network of blood vessels within the brain. This barrier is essential for central nervous system (CNS) homeostasis by controlling molecular flux between the blood and the brain and protecting it from pathogens and toxins. Read more

Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception - a computational modelling approach

This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. Read more

Soft Sensing and Actuation for Upper Limb Rehabilitation

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Strokes are a major healthcare problem for UK, and around 150,000 people have a stroke in UK every year. Almost three quarters of them experience upper-limb extremities and require a long period of active rehabilitation to partially restore functionality of the paretic limbs. Read more

Function Brain imaging in disease: what are the activation maps really telling us?

Functional brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have already revolutionized how we can study the processes and functioning of the healthy human brain and are making an increasing impact on our understanding on what goes wrong in disease of the brain. Read more
