Design and synthesis of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors - synthetic, medicinal chemistry

Research project. We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to join an interdisciplinary team at the University of Otago, to undertake research developing chemical probes for the cannabinoid receptor, a type of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). Read more

Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials

New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships. Read more

Identify novel approaches to combat multi drug resistant pathogens

Our research is focused on recalcitrant ESKAPE (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, andEnterobacter species) pathogens; especially hard-to-treat clinical isolates involved in multidrug resistance, biofilm infections and persistence.

Reactive collisions

Ultracold chemistry aims at controlling chemical reactions at the quantum state level. At its heart lies the idea of placing molecules into a single rotational, vibrational, electronic, and hyperfine state, and exploring how this affects their reactivity. This Ph.D. Read more

Charting new neuronal survival pathways in Parkinson’s disease

The Neurodegenerative and Lysosomal Disease Laboratory is interested in uncovering the unknown molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly in the development of Parkinson’s disease and Batten disease. Read more

Genetic causes of novel neurodevelopmental disorders

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Novel disease genes in brain development and decline

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Exploring a novel neurodevelopmental disease gene using a zebrafish model

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Protecting Mum: how hormones act on neural circuitry to regulate postpartum mood and behaviour

Mammals give birth to dependent offspring and significant parental involvement is required to ensure offspring survive. During pregnancy and in the early postpartum period, hormones act on neural circuitry to bring about key changes in a mother's mood and behaviour. Read more

Role of RyR2 posttranslational modification in arrhythmias

Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate opening of the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2). Read more
