Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more

The role of the microbiome in diabetic foot ulcers

  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
Reference. SHLS20069. Background. Recently the composition of the bacterial species that reside in specific areas – the microbiome has been implicated in many long term health conditions. Read more

Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK

Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis. Read more

Towards the development of a novel class of broad-spectrum anti-infective drugs

Through exceptionally strong research collaborations at the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine, we have applied innovative thinking to the field of (Minor Groove Binders) MGBs to develop a novel platform for drug discovery with the potential to treat an impressive range of diseases, including bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral infections.

Therapeutic resolution of coronavirus (COVID-19) diseases by natural products

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Coronavirus now labelled as Covid-19 has become a global pandemic affecting around 200 countries. Currently neither any cure nor any vaccine for Covid-19 has been established. Read more

Using ex-vivo genetic systems as models to detect genetic susceptibility to co-morbidities in Covid 19 infection, and to test specific anti-inflammatory / antiviral drugs in Covid 19 infection

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Research has shown that certain individuals are more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2. Approximately, 20–51% of COVID-19 patients presented with a least one co-morbidity on admission, with diabetes (10–20%) hypertension (10–15%) and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases (7–40%) being most prevalent.

Conflict and Cooperation in Prokaryote Pangenomes

Prokaryotes mediate most of the biogeochemical cycles on the planet, are responsible for large numbers of diseases and are used in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries to make new and interesting compounds. Read more

What really makes a bacterial lipoprotein a real lipoprotein? Important implications for developing or improving lipoprotein-based vaccines

Bacterial lipoproteins have attracted much interest as vaccine candidates over recent years. The lipoprotein, Factor H binding protein, of Neisseria meningitidis for example is the sole antigen of Trumenba, the vaccine developed by Pfizer, and is a major component of the Bexsero vaccine developed by GSK.

The Institute of Biomedical and Environmental Science and Technology (iBEST - https://www.beds.ac.uk/ibest) is the home of natural science research at the University of Bedfordshire, and carries out research in two key areas - biomedical science and environmental science. Read more

Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a grave threat to public health causing 50000 deaths per year in the US and Europe alone. With virtually no new antibiotic classes created in the new millennia, identifying novel strategies to preserve and extend the useful life of existing antibiotics has therefore become a priority.
