  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
  Cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs targeting the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) cascade
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The contractile cells of the heart, cardiomyocytes, possess many protective mechanisms, allowing them to withstand pathophysiological stresses.
  Fusogenic liposomes: the innovative delivery of compounds into human platelets to reduce animal use in platelet research
  Dr A Pollitt, Prof J M Gibbins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Platelets are small cells in the blood which, when activated, play a critical role in the prevention of excessive bleeding at sites of injury.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round
Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.
  How do prenatal steroids elevate autism risk?
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round
"Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a devastating disorder that affects 1% of the population and is the most costly condition in the UK.
  Impact of maternal obesity on offspring adipogenesis
  Dr D Sellayah
Applications accepted all year round
Obesity is the major health crisis of this generation. Thus, research into the mechanistic basis behind obesity is of paramount importance.
  Interleukin 1 signalling the heart
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is associated with high levels of morbidity and mortality, and is an increasing health problem worldwide. One cause is myocardial infarction (MI; “heart attack”) in which coronary arteries become blocked preventing oxygenation of the heart.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round
The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
