Comparing the effects of face-to-face and ‘digital’ psychosocial stress

The working and social climate for the majority of people in UK has changed dramatically in recent months. Adapting to online working and socializing has added to the sources of potential stress in our lives. Read more

Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life. Read more

Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons. Read more

Developing optogenetic therapies for retinal degeneration

Retinal degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in developed countries. The new exciting biological approach of optogenetic therapy in which ectopic expression of photosensitive proteins (photopigments) is used to restore photosensitivity, offers a potential breakthrough for treating these conditions.

The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.

Neuroimmunology of concussion

Concussion, or mild traumatic brain injury, affects millions world-wide each year. It is now appreciated that a history of concussion increases the risk of developing long-term emotional and neurocognitive disorders. Read more

Central regulation of appetite and body weight

Our laboratory is interested in how the brain regulates appetite and body weight. We use a multi-disciplined approach; studying gene expression, cellular function, brain connectivity and behaviour. Read more

Detecting subtle but clinically significant cognitive change in an ageing population

A major challenge facing dementia research is identifying the earliest indicators of clinically-significant cognitive decline. This research project will be linked to the newly established Memory Assessment & Cognitive Ageing Research Unit (MACARU), led by the primary supervisor. Read more
