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

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

A molecular characterization of the sensory system in mosquitos

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
