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.

Establishing new redox-signalling mechanisms as a therapeutic target to prevent age-associated diseases

Project Summary. This iCASE BBSRC DTP studentship provides an exciting opportunity to use a diverse range of cutting-edge techniques, and exploit the advantages of different model systems, to elucidate new cell signalling mechanisms that protect against ageing/age-associated diseases. Read more

Native state imaging and characterisation of tissue derived extracellular matrix hydrogels for regenerative medicine applications

The University of Nottingham has a long-standing reputation for world-class research. The School of Pharmacy is ranked 5th in the world (2021 QS World Rankings) for pharmacy and pharmacology and was recently awarded an Athena Swan Silver award. Read more

Pharmacophylogenomics: Developing phylogenies as predictive tools in drug discovery

The Project. Drug targets are proteins encoded in our genomes that can interact with drugs, triggering physiological responses. The pairing of targets and their targeting drugs is at the core of drug discovery and is accomplished with a combination of bioinformatics and biochemical approaches. Read more

Using spider venoms to develop novel, safer, insecticides for crop protection

For protecting crops, neonicotinoids have become the most widely used class of insecticides in the world. However, their use has been restricted in the European Union amidst fears that they are having adverse effects on pollinators such as the honey bee, Apis mellifera. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs). Read more
