Defining genetic associations in the complex 17q21.31 inversion region to identify potential drug targets

Wellcome Trust PhD Studentship. Project. Understanding the basis of genetic associations with common diseases or traits is important both for understanding the etiology of the disease and for developing drugs targeted at particular gene products and pathways. Read more

Unravelling the genetic basis of normal and abnormal retinal development

Wellcome Trust Studentship. Project. Humans achieve high spatial visual acuity due to the fovea. Developmental arrest of this area, foveal hypoplasia, often this arises due to variants in genes expressed early in retina. Read more

A molecular characterisation of the sensory system in mosquitos

  Research Group: Behavioural & Developmental Genetics
Because of mosquitos’ ability to transmit viruses (Zika virus) and other parasites (such as Plasmodium, the agent causing malaria), the World Health Organization considers them to be one of the world’s deadliest organisms1 and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is making enormous financial contributions to research to counter the mosquito threat.

Genomics of the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma

  Research Group: Human & Medical Genetics
Cancer genome sequences show that cancer is a highly heterogeneous disease, with each patient having a unique mutational profile. Read more

Genetic and environmental factors conferring susceptibility to adverse respiratory impacts of air pollution

Wellcome Trust Studentship. Project. The impacts of air pollution are well recognised in terms of increased mortality but there is much less evidence available in terms of morbidity and potential modifying factors and surprisingly few studies on the impact on the lung. . Read more

Predicting disease risk in African populations

Wellcome Trust Studentship. Project. It is becoming increasingly feasible to use a person’s DNA sequence to predict their risk of developing diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Read more
