Exploring myopia and the effect of lifestyle within Bradford and West Yorkshire

  Research Group: Optometry and Vision Science
Myopia, known as short-sightedness, is where distance vision becomes blurry in childhood, causing the need to wear spectacles or contact lenses at all times. Read more

Investigation of prostate cancer stem cell targeting therapeutics with clinical potential

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Prostate cancer (PCa) patients with aggressive disease are associated with. Aim. To evaluate ALDH-targeting therapeutics as a new strategy to treat prostate cancer stem cells. Read more

Sustainable and controlled drug delivery to fight global antimicrobial resistance (AMR) using hybrid porous nano containers

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major global challenges and it is often linked to the use of unnecessarily high doses of orally administered antibiotics following medical surgeries and infections. Read more

Epigenetic regulation of skin wound healing

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Skin in the largest organ in the human body consisting of epidermis, dermis and subcutis. It also contains epithelial appendages, including hair follicles and sweat glands. Read more

Development of chemical tools and bioactive compounds to explore the importance of enzyme activity in cancer diseases

Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) is a modern chemical methodology, which aims to synthesise small molecules that cover new chemical space with the possibility of finding unexplored biological targets or pathways that may be important for disease progression. Read more

Development of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for oncology indications

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells but are not harmful to normal tissue. Read more

Health Opportunity for Patient Empowerment in Gestational Diabetes (HOPE-GDM)

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Gestational Diabetes is a temporary condition diagnosed at 24-28 weeks gestation, where the body is unable to maintain normal blood glucose levels due to insulin resistance during pregnancy. Read more

Formulation of heterogenous solid dispersions produced by spray drying and hot-melt extrusion for improved delivery of amorphous drugs

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Production of the amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) is a one of the methods of improving of physicochemical properties of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) such as its solubility and physicochemical stability. Read more

Formulation and biopharmaceutical characterisation of novel pro-antibiotics for improved oral permeability

  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
This project is focused on the formulation, synthesis, and biopharmaceutical characterisation of novel pro-antibiotics for improved oral bioavailability. Read more

ERK5 MAPK signalling in Alzheimer’s disease

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Neurodegenerative diseases have devastating effects on individuals’ lives and our society, with no effective treatments available. Read more

Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT): Investigation of the role in acquired drug resistance in colon cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Despite treatment advances, one of the most common cancers, colorectal cancer (CRC), still has a 45% mortality rate, and one of the major problems is the build-up of resistance to cancer drugs during treatment (‘acquired resistance’) such that over time the drugs stop working. Read more

Discovery and Development of Biocatalytic Solutions to Mitigate Microplastic Pollution

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Plastic contamination is a great ecological disaster facing modern society; a burden overwhelmingly heaped on the least economically developed countries. Read more

Directed Co-Crystallisation of Pharmaceuticals: developing a predictive method for co-crystallisation

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
In this project, we propose to use a combination of computational and experimental techniques to develop a predictive method for co-crystallisation. Read more

Development of Naked Mole Rat Colonic Crypt Models to Use in the Search for Bowel Disease Preventatives

Diseases affecting the bowel such as colorectal cancer (CRC) and the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are major global healthcare challenges in the 21st century. Read more
