Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g. Read more

Circadian clock control of adipocyte metabolism

Obesity is a major public health issue affecting one third of UK adults, and an estimated 2.1 billion individuals worldwide. The role of circadian clock dysfunction in the development of obesity is becoming clear, with disruptive lifestyles (e.g. Read more

Enhancing clinical metabolomic studies through improved laboratory and bioinformatics tools

Applications will be reviewed until a suitable candidate is appointed and funding is available. Metabolites play many important roles in humans including in metabolism of food, synthesis of proteins and DNA, in signalling and regulation of biochemical mechanisms and in the development and progression of diseases.

Deciphering the role of white and brown adipocytes in metabolic disease

Our work focuses on understanding how obesity drives the development of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Specifically, it aims to decipher molecular determinants of adipocyte number and distribution within the body; key factors of susceptibility to obesity-associated cardiometabolic diseases. Read more

Development of a Long Acting Parathyroid Hormone Fusion for the Treatment of Hypoparathyroidism

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is an 84 aa peptide produced by the parathyroid glands and is responsible for calcium homeostasis. Hypoparathyroidism is a rare condition in which the parathyroid glands are either absent or damaged and therefore cannot produce any or sufficient amounts of parathyroid hormone. Read more

Project at University of Surrey: Filling the fibre gap: functional and metabolic potential of high amylose wheat

Project description. Wheat is the most widely grown food crop and the most traded cereal in the world today. It is therefore a perfect foundation for raising the nutritional quality of the food supply to help improve overall health of communities worldwide. Read more

Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks

The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
