Defining the molecular mechanisms of leukaemia chemotherapies

Chemotherapies are usually the backbone of cancer treatment for either curative or palliative patient care. Multiple therapies can be used for the same disease, with the choice of drug dependent on parameters such as the patient’s age and fitness. Read more

The epigenomic, transcriptional and diagnostic architecture of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by exposure to maternal infection

A fundamental unknown in understanding mechanisms of disease, and therefore improving therapy, is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016). Read more

Understanding the role of spliceosome gene mutations in disease

The DNA of a cell is copied into a pre-messenger RNA (pre-mRNA) that the cell uses as a template for protein production. Some of the information contained in DNA is not required for making proteins, therefore, unwanted information must be removed before a protein is made. Read more

Driving phenotypic plasticity and metastasis in small cell lung cancer

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive malignancy with poor prognosis. Underlying this aggressiveness is intra-tumoural heterogeneity driven by phenotypic plasticity wherein tumour cells transition from a neuroendocrine (NE) to a non-neuroendocrine (non-NE) phenotype. Read more

Chaperones and the response to protein misfolding stress

Misfolded proteins are usually refolded to their functional conformations or degraded by quality control mechanisms. When misfolded proteins evade quality control, they form aggregates that are sequestered to specific sites within cells. Read more

A novel role in mitochondrial homeostasis for the anti-ageing factor RBBP5

The mitochondrion has evolved from the endosymbiotic interaction of an alpha-proteobacterium and an archaeon. One major event during this evolution was the transferring of genes from the symbiont to the host. Read more

Using microRNA inhibitors to boost GABAergic inhibition as a genetic therapy for epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disease characterised by recurrent spontaneous seizures and cognitive co-morbidities. Current small molecule approaches to treating epilepsy are ineffective in a significant portion of cases, and are associated with substantial adverse effects. Read more

Dysfunctional antifungal potency of the respiratory mucosa in COPD

Inhalation of Aspergillus fumigatus spores cause >3,000,000 chronic and >200,000 invasive diseases annually worldwide. Invasive aspergillosis carries a 50% mortality rate overall, but mortality rate approaches 100% if diagnosis is delayed or missed and it is >75% in certain cohorts of patients, such as COPD sufferers.
