Investigating the mechanism maintaining centromere integrity

The centromere is a region of chromatin that serves as a platform for the kinetochore machinery assembly, hence is essential for accurate chromosome segregation during cell division. Read more

Elucidating the Environmental Impact of Nanoplastics (NP) through a Mechanistic Understanding of NP-induced Cell Membrane Damage

Plastic pollution is one of the main environmental problems of our time. Due to mismanagement or inadequate recycling practices, up to 300 million tons of plastic end up annually in landfills or are discharged into ecosystems, posing potential threats to aquatic and terrestrial life. Read more

Mechanics of Cell Movements in Plant Stomata - Starting October 2021

We are seeking a motivated candidate to join our biophysics group. The project will involve mechanical modeling (FEM), 3D image analysis and experimental biophysics of plant cells. Read more

A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry. Read more

Modelling photosynthetic water oxidation

This project aims use molecular modelling methods and spectroscopy to understand how the protein environment of electron transfer cofactors in photosysnthesis and in particular how the water oxidising complex, facilitates electron transfer and also helps stabilise these radical species to maintain a charge separated state.

Fractional order modelling of neurons

Project Overview. Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering. Read more

MSc by Research programme - Bringing proteins together with small molecules

Recent advances from the Ciulli Lab and others have contributed to the establishment of a game-changing new modality of chemical intervention into biological system – one that goes significantly beyond the state-of-the-art. Read more
