Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. Read more

EASTBIO Assessing microbiome functional traits as indicators of soil health for sustainable agriculture

Soil is a multifunctional environment upon which our food security depends. The ability of soils to maintain particular functions which contribute to ecosystem services (such as food, fibre and energy production) is compromised by soil degradation. Read more

Investigating the interactions between diet, obesity and cancer

  Research Group: Metabolism & Cell Growth
Cancer is a systemic disease that associates with a range of host metabolic changes such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cachexia/organ wasting syndrome, each of which alters the host systemic metabolic and nutritional environment. Read more

Improving Hydration Status, Cognition and Learning in Primary School Aged Children through Milk (and Milk Permeate) Consumption. (REF: RDF22/HLS/SER/RUMBOLD)

During Covid-19 and the UK lockdown, children have been impacted severely (and unequally), meaning that many children were away from school for 6 months during the first lockdown (Holt & Murray, 2021), potentially influencing learning and educational development. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Understanding the contribution of dietary extracellular vesicles to healthy human development

The ability to adapt behaviour in response to nutrient availability is important for all cells but particularly so for trophoblasts, as these cells form the placenta - the interface between mother and fetus - and act as fetal sentinels of the maternal environment. Read more

Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals. Read more
