The impact of different ways of communicating about resilience on suicidal experiences

Suicidal experiences such as thoughts, urges, plans and attempts are associated with immense psychological pain and distress. Such experiences are far more prevalent in people who have severe mental health problems, including depression, anxiety and psychosis. Read more

How extracellular matrix components and chemokines are co-ordinated to control immune cell recruitment

Recruitment of immune cells is a critical component of our ability to fight infection from invasive pathogens. However, this process is also central to inflammatory based diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis as well as in a range of cancer pathologies. Read more

Antimicrobial potency of the airway epithelium in health and disease

Background. Human lungs must balance elimination of a myriad of toxic or pathogenic particles inhaled daily with maintenance of tissue homeostasis to avoid lung disease and ultimately respiratory failure. Read more

Common Peripheral Inflammatory Diseases: An Underestimated Stroke Risk Factor

A potential trigger for cryptogenic strokes in young adults is the long-lived hyper-inflammation associated with chronic peripheral inflammatory diseases including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Read more

Sir Geoffrey Jefferson (1886-1961) and the making of British neurosurgery (history of medicine).

This studentship, based in the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), will develop a comprehensive understanding of the history of neurology in Manchester across the twentieth century. Read more

A mechanistic understanding of circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway

The protein secretory pathway comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that cells use to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix. Read more

Metabolism, Stress and the Cell Cycle in Human Hair Follicle Growth and Inflammation

The human hair follicle is a highly proliferative tissue system with unique and complex energy needs to grow hair. This PhD project will examine the links between metabolism and proliferation in human hair follicles, including within epithelial stem and progenitor cell populations. Read more

Defining the pre-metastatic niche for colorectal cancer dissemination

Colorectal cancer is a major cause of mortality and commonly associated with peritoneal metastasis. However, peritoneum, that covers visceral organs and inner cavity wall, is poorly characterised in terms of its ability to act as a metastatic niche. Read more
