Bring Forward Biological Controls for Devastating Panama Disease of Banana

The Panama disease of bananas caused by Foc TR4 threatens the global production of bananas. In this project, we will explore soil bacteria to develop biocontrol methods to mitigate the Panama disease. Read more

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

Synthetic Protein-Transporters for Enhanced Transduction Activity

Intracellular protein delivery is key to probing important cellular processes and developing advanced biotherapeutics. However, protein trafficking into the cell, and more specifically to the cytosol remains a significant challenge. Read more

Development of Nanomaterials for Targeting the Bacteria–Host Interface in Cystic Fibrosis Airways

The attachment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) to the airway mucus in the lungs of people with cystic fibrosis (CF) represents an important step in airway colonization and the subsequent development of lung infection. Read more

Does one size fit all for antimicrobial delivery via nanoparticles

Antimicrobial resistant bacteria are a growing problem and new ways are needed to target bacterial infections more efficiently. One way in which bacteria can avoid therapeutics is via intracellular infection, where they hide within our own cells. Read more

Regulation of CaaX protein processing

USP17 is over-expressed in a range of primary tumours including NSCLC, breast, colorectal, cervical, ovarian and osteosarcoma and its depletion has been shown to block the growth of cells from all these cancer types, as well as the migration of a range of cancer cells (NSCLC, breast, ovarian, osteosarcoma).    .

Designing and evaluating novel nanotherapeutics to enhance the effectiveness of radiotherapy in the treatment of solid cancers.

One in two cancer patients will receive radiotherapy as part of their treatment. For patients with a localised cancer diagnosis effective radiotherapy represents the best chance of a curative outcome, however, is not without risk. Read more

Enzyme-responsive peptide hydrogels as in situ forming long-acting drug delivery implants

One of the key issues in the treatment and prevention of disease is that patients struggle to adhere to the complex dosage regimens of therapies, which often require multiple dosing at very specific times each day. Read more
