Is there a Role for Activated Akt in Palatogenesis?

Main Aim. The project will use a medial edge epithelial (MEE) cell line as an in vitro model. These cells will be used to investigate the effects of exogenous TGFβ-3 and activation of Akt on cell migration, epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and apoptosis. Read more

Computational Studies of Haemodynamic Properties in Arteriovenous Fistula and Peripheral Arteries

Understanding the haemodynamic properties in coronary artery and renal dialysis venous access (DVA) in patients will help to improve the performance and longevity of renal DVA and coronary stent which underpins the life supporting haemodialysis techniques. Read more

p53 upregulation by non-invasive and non-genotoxic physical stimulation as a preventative strategy against COVID and other viral agents

This is an interdisciplinary collaborative approach involving industry that seeks to develop and optimise a strategy to boost p53 levels in anticipation of, or response to, viral infection as epitomised by the present COVID epidemic. Read more

Combining laser and ultrasound based molecular delivery strategies for enhanced drug delivery

Overview. This project addresses the critical area of delivering therapeutics to the skin. If successful, the approach will have direct and positive consequences for the treatment of a range of skin diseases, but may also be viewed as a more generic means of drug delivery for treating a much wider range of disease.

Mathematical Modelling of Biofilm Formation on Urinary Catheters

This project aims to achieve a better understanding of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) using a multidisciplinary approach centred on mathematical modelling. Read more

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Development of micro-incubator OCT/ OCE bioreactor system to engineer a robust musculoskeletal tissue model

Achieving adequate musculoskeletal tissue healing is one of the most challenging factors in the repair of orthopaedic tissues. The problem of hard-to-soft tissue fixation is the major cause of failure of replacement grafts and leads to further musculoskeletal degeneration e.g. Read more

Interdisciplinary investigation of a large effect of sulfasalazine on HbA1c

The anti-inflammatory drug sulfasalazine, which is used in rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, was reported earlier to suppress HbA1c in a small cohort of patients [1]. Read more

Interdisciplinary investigation of the role of amino acids in immunometabolic responses to metformin in human cells

There is overwhelming evidence that inflammation contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) but counterbalancing this is evidence from meta-analysis of randomised control trials that many existing anti-inflammatory drugs, such as COX2 inhibitors and anti-TNF drugs, tend if anything to exacerbate risk of CVD.

Revealing Abledment: Ableism and the Body Politic

Studies in Ableism (SiA) is now a recognised sub-specialism of critical disability studies and focuses on ways that abledment (the process of being/becoming ‘abled’) is located within societal processes and practices. Read more
