(BBSRC) Evaluating and modelling synthetic glycosaminoglycan fragment interactions with COVID-19

Oligosaccharides are critical carbohydrate-based biomolecules found widely on cell surfaces and the intra-cellular matrix, and are central to many vital biological regulatory processes, including cell-differentiation, cancer, bacterial and viral infections and inflammation. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Environmental C-F/C-Cl remediation by heme mono-oxygenases and peroxidases.

Fluorinated compounds have been extensively used in herbicides, pesticides as well as insulators and drug molecules. However, as the C-F bond is very strong, these compounds biodegrade poorly, with some being dubbed “forever chemicals” due to their persistence in the environment, often leading to pollution and toxicity.

(BBSRC) Shedding light on the functioning of root-fungal symbioses with high resolution isotopic imaging

In this exciting multi-disciplinary project, you will work at the interface between physical and biological sciences, using the latest technologies in both to address key questions that underlie food security in the face of changing climates. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Mapping DNA repair interactions using EPR and molecular modelling

Understanding the process by which DNA breaks are healed via by non-homologous end joining is vital for developing the design and precision of future anti-cancer medicines and the optimization of CRISPR/Cas9-based gene editing. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Enzymatic routes for the oxidative 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

(BBSRC) Directed evolution of quantum mechanical tunnelling in enzymes

Hydrogen-transfer reactions involving hydride, hydrogen atom or proton transfers are ubiquitous in enzyme-catalysed reactions. It is now well established that these reactions can occur via a mechanism involving some degree of quantum mechanical tunnelling (QMT), and thus are a feature of quantum biology. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Let your metabolites shine: new NMR experiments and hardware for enhanced studies of metabolites

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) is increasingly applied in studies of metabolites because it is arguably one of the most powerful methods for obtaining structural and dynamic information in complex mixtures. Read more

(BBSRC DTP) Engineering biology: light-responsive carbohydrate materials for the control of molecular recognition

The recognition of carbohydrates spans most areas of biology, from pathogen interactions with their hosts, through the precision activities of the immune system, to the structure and mechanics of the extracellular matrix in animals, storage carbohydrates and the cell wall in plants. Read more

Non-thermal plasma methods for Sustainable Catalysis

  Research Group: Catalysis and Porous Materials
Catalysis is a key technology for multiple industries and will play a critical role to achieve net zero ambitions. In 2020 bp set a goal of being a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and helping the world get to net zero. Read more
