Genetic discovery, screening and function in bicuspid aortic valve disease and related phenotypes.

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV), which affects 1% of the general population, is the most common congenital valvular heart disorder. In affected individuals, the aortic valve (the structure that allows blood to flow from the left ventricle to the aorta) consists of two rather than three leaflets. Read more

The role of copper resistance in Staphylococcus aureus infection

Excess copper is highly toxic and forms part of the host innate immune system’s antibacterial arsenal, accumulating at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens. Read more

The effect of air pollution on bacterial infection and host-pathogen interaction.

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017). Read more

A molecular characterisation of the sensory system in mosquitos

  Research Group: Behavioural & Developmental Genetics
Because of mosquitos’ ability to transmit viruses (Zika virus) and other parasites (such as Plasmodium, the agent causing malaria), the World Health Organization considers them to be one of the world’s deadliest organisms1 and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is making enormous financial contributions to research to counter the mosquito threat.
