UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence (STAI) brings together world leading experts from King's College London and Imperial College London to train a new generation of researchers in safe and trusted artificial intelligence (AI). Read more

Understanding the interaction and functional mechanism of mitochondrial MIA pathway

Mitochondria are vitally important organelles of living cells, which generate the primary energy for all biological activities. Mitochondrial dysfunction leads to life threatening diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, and various neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Read more

Regulation of cell division by mechanical force in 3D tissue environments

The cells and tissues of our bodies are constantly being pushed and pulled and it is vital that they sense and respond to these mechanical forces appropriately to maintain normal tissue function1. Read more

Building organs under pressure – tissue-dependent mechanisms of mechanotransduction in embryonic morphogenesis.

"During development, cells and tissues experience different forces in their biological setting and must be able to both maintain and remodel cell contacts under their native force environment to undergo morphogenesis. Read more

Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.

An omics approach to understand and treat KMT2C-related neurodevelopmental disorder using induced pluripotent stem cells and CRISPR-Cas9

Background. We recently identified a novel human syndrome caused by mutations in a gene called KMT2C1. Patients with this condition predominantly have developmental delay and intellectual disability indicating the important function of this gene in brain’s normal development and function. Read more

Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells. Read more

The Role of cell adhesion proteins in healthy and cancerous epithelial cells

Correct wiring of neuronal axons after nerve injury is a prerequisite for recovery of function. Following spinal cord or peripheral nerve trauma there is impaired axon regrowth, indeed only half of all axons will cross a surgical repair site and even fewer reach their target organ. Read more

The role of the spliceosome protein Prpf8 in embryonic development

Errors that occur during cardiac development cause congenital heart defects (CHD). Despite the prevalence of CHD, the developmental processes that ensure the heart forms correctly are still being elucidated. Read more
