Investigating the interplay between the immune consequences of pelvic radiotherapy, the gut microbiome and long-term side-effects

The North West has a higher prevalence of pelvic cancers compared to the rest of England. Around 40% of all people with cancer have curative-intent radiotherapy (RT) with 1 in 3 people having pelvic radiotherapy as an important component of their anti-cancer treatment. Read more

Optimising ancient DNA (aDNA) extraction in ancient Egyptian skeletal and mummified remains

The University of Manchester’s Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health (d. https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/. ) is offering one funded MPhil project on the study of ancient DNA (aDNA) focus on the extraction optimisation methods of challenging tissues such as soft tissues and skeletal remains from ancient Egypt.

Epigenetic mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses

We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity. Read more

Role of the ribosomal exit tunnel in translation regulation

Ribosomes are the cellular machines that synthesise all proteins within cells. Cells regulate gene expression at multiple levels beyond transcription and control of translation is a key regulatory step both at a global level and for individual mRNAs. Read more

Defining the physiological role and regulation of biological methylations

The regulation of gene expression and function operates at multiple levels. Metabolic pathways in the cell generate metabolites that directly affect DNA, RNA and proteins, regulating the expression and function of many genes, often feeding back on the very enzymes that catalysed their synthesis.

Exploring the decline of human skin barrier function with ageing, and the impact of ethnicity and UVR exposure

The project forms part of The Boots Company Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP), which aims to develop entrepreneurial, highly trained doctorate scientists with transferable research and business skills, who will make valuable contributions to the UK economy by tackling bioscience challenges of the future.

The cutaneous lipidome: Does ethnicity impact skin’s lipid barrier?

Historically, skin research has focused on the properties of white Northern European (or Caucasian) skin. Consequently, our knowledge of skin biology in individuals from different ethnicities is much less advanced. Read more
