Genomics of malignant pleural mesothelioma

Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a rare, incurable cancer that carries a dismal prognosis. Its incidence is increasing globally despite its primary cause, asbestos exposure, having been known for over 50 years. Read more

Hydration, metabolic health and physical function across adulthood (Ref: SSEHS/LJBRC)

This project takes an integrative physiology approach to understand how hydration/24-h water intake influence metabolic health and physical function in young/older adults, particularly in the context of climate change/global warming. . Read more

Enantioselective Fluorinations with the Hypervalent Fluoroiodane Reagent

Graduate Teaching Assistantship. This is a Graduate Training Assistantship (GTA), which means that you will be required to do some teaching, particularly lab demonstrating, as part of your training. Read more

Statistical and epidemiological methods to investigate intersectional inequalities in the trajectories of multimorbidity: a comparative study

BRC funded PhD. Background. Defining the trajectories of multiple morbidities (multiple long-term conditions. MLTCs) over time is of great importance to understand the course of the diseases and inform effective healthcare strategies. Read more

Health inequalities in medication adherence in those with cardiometabolic disease(s)

Background. Medication adherence, defined as the degree to which the person’s behaviour corresponds with the agreed recommendations from a health care provider [1], is often low in those with cardiometabolic conditions, in particular hypertension [2]. Read more

Structural and functional characterisation of MALT1 ubiquitination to aid in the development of novel anti-cancer therapies

Nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB) is a family of transcription factors that play a crucial role in regulating various cellular processes; primarily related to immune responses, inflammation, and cell survival. Read more

Structural investigation of oncogenic splicing factors

More than 90% of human genes can and do express multiple proteins. This is achieved by a process called alternative RNA splicing, which is an essential step in gene expression in mammals. Read more

Obtaining an integrated understanding of oncogenic RAS signalling

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. The physiological importance of RAS signalling is evident as about 25% of all human cancers harbour mutations in ras genes, where kras is most frequently mutated (about 18%) (COSMIC, v94). Read more

Investigating the roles that G protein coupled receptors play in hypertension

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) constitute a very large family of heptahelical, integral membrane proteins that mediate a wide variety of physiological processes ranging from the transmission of light and odorant signals to the mediation of neurotransmission and hormonal actions. Read more
