Investigating how Plants use RNA to Cope with Stress (DING_J22DTP1)

The diversity of RNA structure is wide and varied, from hairpins and bulges through to triplex and quadruplexes. These structures are able to control numerous biological functions from sensing of messenger compounds to dictating whether genes are switched on or off. Read more

Molecular structuring of foods to feed the gut microbiome (WARRENF_Q22CASE)

Developing the latest generation of foods requires detailed structural and chemical insights into the molecular scale structuring within a food, as well as the application of novel processing methods. Read more

*Eastbio*: Serum albumin glycation and its impact on Zn2+-dependent haemostasis and insulin dynamics

Zinc is an essential micronutrient in mammals, vital to virtually all physiological pathways and processes. High nanomolar concentrations of free zinc ions (Zn2+) are cytotoxic; therefore, extracellular zinc is usually well-buffered. Read more

EASTBIO CASE Molecular engineering of the ubiquitin-proteasome system: A new approach to pathogen resistance in plants

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important crop worldwide and second in the UK. Diseases, including those caused by the brown rust pathogen, Puccinia hordei, cause barley yield losses of up to 40%. Read more

EASTBIO The role of host membrane protein interactions in herpesvirus nuclear egress and SARS-CoV-2 double membrane vesicle formation

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
    Viruses have many critical interactions with host cell membranes that mostly take advantage of host cell proteins. The Schirmer and Graham labs have 2 lines of investigation involving virus interactions with host cell membrane proteins that could be individually or jointly carried further in this PhD project. . Read more

Mechanobiology of the gut microbiota

The Persat lab (. p-lab.science. ) investigates how mechanical forces regulate the physiology of bacteria, both pathogens and from the microbiota, and how this impacts the process of host colonization. Read more

EASTBIO Shaping tissues by pulsed contractions - studying how cells change shape during morphogenesis

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. To shape tissues and organs, cells need to exert forces on their neighbours and respond to them. Individual cells can generate forces with their actin cytoskeleton. Read more

EASTBIO Investigating how a biological rhythm allows cells to adapt to change

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Biological rhythms are a fundamental property of life, and even single cells can generate both cell cycles and circadian oscillations. Read more

EASTBIO Bone biomineralisation

This project will investigate the fundamental mechanisms which regulate bone mineralisation through extracellular vesicles. A deeper understanding of this process will expose new therapeutic targets for the treatment of bone disorders. Read more

EASTBIO New chemical tools to understand and exploit tubulin diversity

Microtubules are long polymers important for cell division, intracellular transport and polarity. Many isotypes of microtubules co-exist in human cells and levels of expression vary with the cell type. Read more
