Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application globally. However, there has been a steady accumulation of discarded plastics and there is now growing awareness that they present a significant hazard to the natural environment and human health. Read more

Decoding the epigenetic mechanisms of drug resistance in aggressive breast cancers

Breast cancers pose a major health burden to modern world as being the most common cancer in women. Estrogen receptor (ER), the classical marker of 70% these cancers, is the nuclear receptor important for cancer progression. Read more

Delineating the IRF6 regulatory network driving periderm formation and function

During development, the ectoderm passes through a series of cell states to produce a self-replenishing, multi-layered epidermis. Initial stratification forms a single-cell layer of flattened periderm cells which act as a barrier to prevent pathological adhesions during embryogenesis. Read more

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Evaluation of Tripterygium wilfordii derived compounds as novel treatments for medulloblastoma.

Medulloblastoma is the most common paediatric malignant brain tumour, accounting for 20% of childhood brain tumours cases per annum in the United Kingdom alone, with approximately one-third of patients dying from the disease worldwide. Read more

Understanding biomolecule controls on mineral transformations and biogeochemical cycles

Project overview. Minerals play a pivotal role in shaping Earth's biogeochemical cycles, exerting control over the mobility, speciation and (bio)availability of key nutrients, pollutants and technology-critical elements. Read more

High-throughput biomaterials discovery

Polymer biomaterials have revolutionised a range of areas from drug delivery, to antimicrobials, to cellular cryopreservation. There are 1000’s of possible monomer combinations, molecular weights and architectures to be explored, and even small differences can dramatically change their properties. Read more

Engineering Ice-Binding Proteins

Ice-binding proteins are produced by extremophiles to help them survive in the worlds coldest places. They have many potential applications, from the storage of cells/tissue to transport infrastructure. Read more
