Reconstructing Regional Identities in Britain 1st BCE-4th CE through Metal Artefacts: The case of the Cornovii

The research will explore important issues of regional identity in SW Britain under Roman rule and try to define the fundamental differences between the people of Devon/southern Somerset (Dumnonii) and the people of Cornwall (Cornovii) through a large-scale study of Iron Age and Roman coins and metalwork.

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

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

High dimensional predictive inference for precision immunotherapy of mesothelioma

Wellcome Trust Studentship. Project. Immunotherapy has transformed the treatment of cancer over the last decade. Mesothelioma, a lethal cancer caused by asbestos responds to immunotherapy, however only a fraction of patients benefit, for reasons which are currently unknown. Read more

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

To feast among the starving: oxygen-limited investigation of Mycobacterium avium.

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of microbial physiology to investigate metabolic and respiratory adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

To feast among the starving: computational bioenergetic modelling of Mycobacterium avium

This project seeks to advance the frontiers of bioscience discovery by improving our understanding of how thermodynamic constraints can limit bacterial adaptation to challenging environments. Read more

Modelling how neural waves transfer information in brain cortex

Human brain processes information in a very different way as compared to modern computers. We cannot compete with modern PCs on the speed of numerical calculation, but still can perform tasks which modern computer are incapable of. Read more
