Mechanistic computational modelling of human glioblastoma metabolism

Glioblastoma is the most common and the most lethal malignant brain tumor. In vitro cell culture of glioma cells is essential for the discovery and development of novel anticancer treatments. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

Enhancing clinical metabolomic studies through improved laboratory and bioinformatics tools

Applications will be reviewed until a suitable candidate is appointed and funding is available. Metabolites play many important roles in humans including in metabolism of food, synthesis of proteins and DNA, in signalling and regulation of biochemical mechanisms and in the development and progression of diseases.

Evaluation of MCT1s role in chromatin remodelling and metabolomics changes involved in cancer progression

Monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1) is a transmembrane protein involved in cell metabolism and mediates transport of monocarboxylates (such as pyruvate {a metabolic substrate} and lactate {a metabolic by product}) in and out of the cell. Read more

Four-year PhD to assess the development of mother-offspring multi’omic “handprints” that predict child phenotypes

Strong evidence now supports a crucial role for early metabolomes in programming lifelong health. This project based in the NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre provides an important opportunity to inform new interventions to promote healthy lifecourse trajectories in the next generation.

Stress responses in crops and sustainable production of chemicals and biomass

The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant stress responses to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants and phytopharmaceuticals, leading to enhanced crop yields and solutions for animals and human health. Read more

Nitrate supplementation as an alternative to antiseptic mouthwash and a method to reduce the burden of antimicrobial resistance (VP2228)

This project builds upon our pioneering research which shows that nitrate, a compound found in green leafy vegetables, can substantially improve key markers of periodontitis (gum disease) and cardiovascular health. Read more

MSc by Research: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied plant metabolic pathways over the past two decades. Read more
