Funded PhD - How do animals stay vigilant during sleep?

Sleep is vital for health and cognition yet is usually associated with unconsciousness meaning individuals are vulnerable to dangers in their environment and are unable to capitalize on resources should they become available (e.g food or a mate). Read more

Implementing state-of-the-art models to understand how blood cancer clones out-compete healthy stem cells and discovery targetable disease mechanisms

My lab focuses on myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) – chronic blood cancers in which cancer-induced remodelling of the tumour microenvironment plays a major role in fuelling malignant progression and poor outcomes for patients. Read more

How sex chromosomes regulate mammalian development

In the Turner lab, we investigate how the sex chromosomes control mammalian development, from the early embryo to adult cell types, including germ cells. Read more

Reconstruction of the sensory pathway via gene manipulation

Spinal cord injury (SCI) causes impairment of the sensory, motor and autonomic functions. Pilot experiments have demonstrated the possibility of regenerating sensory function after spinal cord injury by expressing alpha9 integrin and kindlin-1 in DRGs. Read more

The genetic map of human molecular phenotypes

Rationale. Genome wide associations studies (GWASs) have discovered many genetic associations with a large range of human traits, but the functional consequences of GWAS signals often remain elusive, as most GWAS signals reside in non-coding genomic regions. Read more

Discovering off-target side-effects and drug repurposing candidates using expression perturbation data

Rationale. Mendelian Randomization (MR) is a genetic epidemiology method which utilises variants sourced from genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to assess causality between risk/protective factors and disease outcomes in a manner less biased to observational studies(1). Read more

Identifying causal pathways to disease using DNA methylation predicted blood traits.

Project Background. Blood cell types have been implicated in pathogenesis of chronic diseases. Genome wide association studies have identified thousands of variants associated with blood trait variation. Read more

Harnessing the genetics of DNA methylation to understand context-specific gene regulation in disease

Project Background. Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered many genetic associations with health outcomes. However, most GWAS signals reside in non-coding regions and it is likely that GWAS variants confer their effects through a regulatory mechanism. Read more

The use of life course epidemiology to support the experimental characterisation of genetic variation

Project Background. There has been a rapid expansion in the generation of genetic sequence data over the last decade. Understanding the potential relevance of genetic mutations to human health remains challenging. Read more

Multimorbidity and pregnancy complications: exploring causal relationships and identifying therapeutic targets

Project Background. Multimorbidity is recognized as a major public health and clinical problem. It has been largely considered a problem of middle or older age, but emerging evidence suggests its presence at younger ages. . Read more

Plant adaptation to low oxygen conditions

In plants, cells are exposed to varying oxygen (O. 2. ) concentrations due to changes in environmental availability, metabolic activity, and organ anatomy (Weits et al., 20201; Loreti and Perata, 20202). Read more
