How the Extracellular Matrix regulates cellular and organ growth

What is the reason why cells can suddenly switch to uncontrolled cellular growth? What causes the normal formation of cellular contacts and organs to stop growing when reaching their normal size to ignore normal signals and multiply uncontrollably?. Read more

Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics. Read more

Characterisation of the role of Panx1/Panx2 in primary endothelial cells

Pannexins are a family of proteins that are evolutionary related to the gap-junction forming proteins, innexins (1). Three members have been identified, Panx1, Panx2 and Panx3, and they show distinct tissue distribution. Read more

Design and synthesis of novel iron chelators as a therapy for thalassaemia patients.

Iron overload can be a huge issue for people coping with thalassaemia. This project will involve the synthesis of novel ion chelators that are effective and ultimately exhibit less side-effects of existing treatments. Read more

Development of low molecular weight organogelators

Low Molecular Weight Organogelators (LMWOs) are small molecules, which are able to gel organic species through intermolecular supra-assembly.[1-4] This property makes them very useful for oil spill remediation and clean-up, as you can apply the LMWO to floating oil slicks; gel the oil and scoop it out of the water.

Magnetic-polymer hydrogels for controlled drug release

This dynamic, multidisciplinary project involves developing a facile technique to fabricate polymer hydrogels incorporated with Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for controlled drug delivery applications. Read more

Synthesis and Anti-Cancer Evaluation of New Heterocyclic Quinones

The group has published on small molecules with specificity towards hypoxic cells associated with solid tumours, reductase enzymes over-expressed in cancer, as well as, aziridines that induce hypersensitivity from Fanconi anaemia cells and those carrying mutations in the BRCA (Breast Cancer Susceptibility) genes.

Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.

Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a grave threat to public health causing 50000 deaths per year in the US and Europe alone. With virtually no new antibiotic classes created in the new millennia, identifying novel strategies to preserve and extend the useful life of existing antibiotics has therefore become a priority.
