EASTBIO Prenatal influences on brain health and function

The prenatal environment has a profound effect on the development of the brain. Maternal stress levels, nutrition, and inflammation all can cause changes in the foetal brain, affecting the proliferation, migration, and wiring of neurons. Read more

Using spider venoms to develop novel, safer, insecticides for crop protection

For protecting crops, neonicotinoids have become the most widely used class of insecticides in the world. However, their use has been restricted in the European Union amidst fears that they are having adverse effects on pollinators such as the honey bee, Apis mellifera. Read more

Redefining the use of steroids in endometriosis: key mechanisms and new solutions

Endometriosis is a debilitating condition that affects an estimated 190 million women of reproductive-age worldwide [1]. In endometriosis, cells similar to the lining of the uterus typically form lesions around the bowel, ovaries and bladder, causing chronic inflammation and scarring. Read more

Investigation of aortic remodelling in obesity and role of mitochondrial dysfunction

Obesity is a global healthcare and economic burden with currently more than 650 million adults classified as obese (WHO, 2017). Obesity is a common precursor to type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and both are risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease. Read more
