Synthetic Biology Approaches to Sensing Pathogenic Viruses and Narcotics

Engineering biology and its place in sensing. One of the key attributes of life is the ability to respond to stimuli. Nature has evolved a wide array of molecules, tissues and organs that sense stimuli as diverse as light, taste, pressure, odour, pheromones and drugs. Read more

Understanding the role of alpha-actinin in cardiac disease: from molecules to in vivo models

In the heart and skeletal muscle, the Z-disc is a crucial structure to anchor thin filaments of the contractile units. Moreover, the Z-disc is recognised as a signalling hub, sensing and responding to changes in the environment. Read more

Redefining the origin of life:(Photo)electrochemistry at subfreezing conditions

The origin of life remains one of the greatest and most controversial problems of science. Since 1953, when Miller and Urey performed their now-famous experiment, the scientific community has been strongly divided over whether life arose on Earth under hot-start or cold-start scenarios. Read more

Intracrine GPCRs as master regulators of adipocyte lipolysis and metabolic disease

This project, funded through the MRC Advanced Inter-disciplinary Models Doctoral Training Partnership (AIM DTP), aims at investigating a new emerging paradigm in G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signalling in the control of adipocyte metabolism and its implications for the pharmacological therapy of metabolic disease.

Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases. Read more

Understanding the molecular mechanisms of plant disease resistance

Plant pathogens pose major challenges both to crop production and to the resilience of natural ecosystems. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture and forestry. Read more

Stream synchrony: understanding the synchrony of nutrients, pollution, and water in river ecosystems

Rivers convey and transform the water, nutrients and pollutants they receive from the landscape. High concentrations of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus may act as pollutants, damaging freshwater and estuary ecosystems through processes such as eutrophication. Read more
