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.

Microfluidic Deformation for Intracellular Delivery

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The aim of this PhD to study a high-throughput microfluidic platform to facilitate the controlled uptake of nanoparticles into live cells for intracellular probes (for reporting on cancer cells), respectively, using experimental methods. Read more

Cellular logistics: Biological physics of selective protein and gene transport across the nuclear envelope

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The coordinated transport of proteins and nucleic acids between the nucleus and the cytosol is vital for proper gene expression and cell function, and hijacked by viruses to propagate. Read more

Accurate and Ultra-Sensitive DNA Mutation Detection by Nanopore Barcode Recording

Mutations of DNA within the genome are defining features of cancers, yet their accurate, quantitative, multiplexed detection with amplification-based methods is only possible above a threshold of tumour burden where sufficient material is available. Read more

Modelling cross-linked fibre networks in flow

  Research Group: School of Computing
Many industrial and biomedical materials consist of a fibrous solid phase immersed in a viscous fluid, e.g. the cellular cytoskeleton, tissue engineering scaffolds, medical filters, fibre reinforced materials etc. Read more

Precision & Personalised Approaches for Treating Cancer

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Over 10 million surgical operations are performed each year in the NHS, with patients increasingly benefiting from minimally invasive approaches with reduced morbidity, quicker return to normal function, and cost savings for the NHS. Read more

Pushing the Resolution 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

Multifunctional hybrid porous silica nanoparticles for stimuli-responsive delivery of novel antimicrobial agents

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The rapid emergence of multidrug-resistant superbugs poses a serious global health and socioeconomic threat. This project builds upon our expertise in the facile and scalable synthesis of novel, highly uniform porous silica nanoparticles for drug delivery. Read more
