Deep learning in digital histopathology for clinically applicable biomarker discovery in prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for males in the UK, with around 50,000 new cases every year [1]. Patient information such as their age and tumour staging are used by clinicians to help them decide treatment strategies [2] and assess the risk of the cancer becoming more aggressive [3]. Read more

Assessing energy efficiency of buildings – role of remote sensing data and geospatial methods

  Research Group: Geography and Environmental Studies
Climate change projections predict substantial impacts on cities and human development in future. The goal of Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to below 2°C rise, compared to the pre-industrial levels (1850-1900) and making an all-out effort to limit this increase to 1.5°C (UNFCCC, 2015).

Coastal sediment dynamics on the North Coast of Northern Ireland at decadal to centennial scale

  Research Group: Geography and Environmental Studies
Future predictions of shoreline models, lacking reliable long-term data to be calibrated with, fail to forecast the consequences generated by the current and future context of sea level rise and climate change. Read more

Aeolian bedform dynamics on Mars: remote sensing and airflow modelling using earth analogues

  Research Group: Geography and Environmental Studies
Small-scale wind-blown features are widespread sedimentary indicators of local wind dynamics on Mars and could potentially be a unique source of information on Martian wind regimes given the possibility to monitor them with time series of Remotely Sensed imagery, using  advanced techniques for registration and correlation of optical  images.

Engineering of stable neuromedin-U (NMU) octapeptide analogues and related dual-agonist peptides for use in diabetes and obesity therapy

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences
Gut cells produce natural peptide hormones that are released into the bloodstream after a meal. These include key incretin hormones (GLP-1 and GIP), which help to regulate blood glucose through promoting release of pancreatic insulin. Read more
