Molecular Glues as Novel Therapies for Cancer and Ageing

Background: The need for new medicines is greater than ever because of an ageing population and the complex clinical challenges brought about by drug resistance and/or side effects. Read more

Using cryo-EM and biophysical methods to characterise proteins involved in DNA repair to aid development of novel therapeutics

DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) describe a break across both strands of DNA. This type of DNA damage can be catastrophic for cell survival as if not repaired correctly can lead to deletions, translocation, cell death and cancer. Read more

To feast among the starving: facultative anaerobiosis by Mycobacterium avium

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

Ameliorating ageing and age-related diseases by targeting senescence and the p53 pathway.

Ageing is a process defined by the accumulation of old (senescent) cells in tissues. It has been shown that senescent cells interfere with the normal functions of tissues and thus lead to the phenotypic changes associated with ageing as well as the establishment of age-related diseases. Read more

CRISPR/Cas mediated chromosome engineering in Arabidopsis

CRISPR/Cas has emerged as a flexible tool for genome editing in complex eukaryotes. It has been widely used for targeted mutagenesis and DNA repair as well more sophisticated approaches utilising the specificity of guide RNAs to target Cas9-tagged proteins. Read more

Phages as the ultimate puppeteers of bacterial metabolism

Bacteriophages, or phages are bacterial viruses, and are the most abundant and diverse biological entities on Earth. Throughout the biosphere they outnumber their bacterial hosts by at least 10 to 1 and strikingly, the majority of the functions of most genes encoded by phages remains unknown. Read more

Using cryo-EM to understand DNA double-strand break repair

We are looking for an ambitious PhD student with interests in learning about structural biology and DNA repair. Our goal is to gain a greater understanding of DNA repair to develop future therapeutics for treatment of diseases, ageing and cancer. Read more

In situ and structural studies of ion channel behaviour in acute injury and fibrosis

Background: Fibrosis (scarring) is a common ageing-associated process that affects all organs. It results from major or persistent injury, and maintains tissue integrity but not function, so excessive or progressive fibrosis results in organ dysfunction. Read more

CRISPR/Cas mediated chromosome engineering in Arabidopsis

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
CRISPR/Cas has emerged as a flexible tool for genome editing in complex eukaryotes. It has been widely used for targeted mutagenesis and DNA repair as well more sophisticated approaches utilising the specificity of guide RNAs to target Cas9-tagged proteins. Read more
