Transcription replication coordination

RNA Pol II (RNAPII) transcription and DNA replication are the two essential-for-life processes that use as a substrate the DNA in our cells, allowing them to express the content of their genetic information and to propagate these instructions to daughter cells. Read more

Developing Novel Therapies to Prevent Atherosclerosis

Background. There is intense interest in identifying the genes that predispose to the development of atherosclerosis. We recently carried out an expression analysis of human tissue using microarrays that identified several candidate genes. Read more

Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors

This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors. Read more

Establishing a rationale for FGF23 modulation as a therapy in the critically ill patient

Research interests/description of main research theme. Everyone suffers at least one critical illness during their life. In the UK, 160,000 critically ill patients are admitted annually to intensive care units (ICU). Read more

Bacterial chat – tipping the balance in the oral cavity

Applications are invited for a 4-year fully-funded BBSRC-iCase PhD Studentship starting October 2021. The project will investigate bacterial communication in the oral cavity and its relevance to health and disease. Read more

Identification of novel regulators of pancreatic beta-cell identity

Diabetes is the largest epidemic in human history that affects 1 in 12 adults worldwide. Due to our modern lifestyle, it is one of the few diseases where the incidence is set to rise dramatically, with projections putting 650 million people at risk by 2040. Read more

Targeting steroid metabolism to block colorectal cancer proliferation

Our group is a world leader in targeting specific aspects of steroid metabolism to block cancer growth. Our research has been instrumental in the successful pre-clinical and clinical development of various novel anti-cancer compounds. Read more

The role of glucocorticoid desulfation in chronic inflammatory disease pathophysiology

Chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs) are a common group of highly disabling immune conditions leading to persistent inflammation and tissue-specific manifestations, such as ulcerative colitis and arthritis. Read more

Regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways by adenovirus

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses with a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long served as a faithful model for dissecting the molecular basis of key cellular signalling pathways that regulate fundamental biological processes such as cell growth, cell differentiation and cell death. Read more

Leaky waveguide analysis of neutrophil migration and degranulation

Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell in circulation and are the first line for innate defence. This means that these cells locate to a site of injury and/or infection very quickly and initiate the body’s response. Read more
