Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.

Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease: what is the role of amyloid-beta fibril structure?

This project will explore the role of amyloid-beta fibril structure in triggering neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and affects millions worldwide. Read more

Cancer: Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC). Read more

Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments. Read more

Cell Deformation Cytometry for Studying of the Role of Perineuronal Nets in controlling the Biomechanics of Neuronal Cells

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Perineuronal nets (PNNs) are hydrogel-like layers of aggregated brain extracellular matrix molecules that enwrap a subpopulation of neurones and are instrumental for the regulation of neuroplasticity. Read more

Pushing the Speed Limits of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Understanding the structural dynamics of complex molecules is vital to advancing our knowledge of materials, medicine and diseases, yet there are few techniques which can capture motions at high enough speeds or resolution to understand the underlying behaviour. Read more

Artificial cells with biochemical clocks: oscillatory enzyme reactions in confinement

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Artificial cells are engineered materials that mimic one or more of the functions of living biological cells. Oscillating chemical processes are common within living organisms to control a variety of essential processes, including the metabolism of sugars and the release of hormones. Read more
