Investigation of antagonism of multiple RGD-binding integrins as a therapeutic strategy in advanced head and neck cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Background. The integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors which mediate cell-cell and cell-ECM adhesion, and signalling across the cell membrane involved in pathways controlling cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, cell survival and apoptosis. Read more

Cancer: Inhibiting cell metabolism to enhance tumour cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more

Cancer: Repurposing drugs as new treatments for breast cancer

Breast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer, with over 1 million new cases diagnosed worldwide each year. For some types of BC, hormonal treatments have been very effective but one particular BC subtype, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), is highly aggressive and lacks a targeted therapy. Read more

Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma.

Control and inhibition of virus replication

The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specifically Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets. Read more

The role of ubiquitin-modifying enzymes in angiogenesis

The School of Molecular & Cellular Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25. Read more

The role of vitamin D3 in treating skin cancer and preventing drug resistance

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
During the last decade numerous studies have alluded to vitamin D. 3. playing a role in the prevention of cancer. Recent clinical trials looking at the potential role of vitamin D. Read more

Cellular signalling mechanisms in iPSC-derived cardiovascular cells

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) offer an advanced platform for disease modelling, drug discovery, and regenerative therapies. Read more
