MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT FOR SELF-FUNDING STUDENT: Evaluation of novel genetically encoded fluorescent indicators of G-protein coupled receptor signalling

G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR) are the key group of molecular targets for the modern pharmacology of central nervous system. Moreover, many key biological processes in health and disease have been linked to signalling, mediated by GPCR. Read more

Managing Sleep to Enhance Mental Wellbeing in Parkinson’s Disease (Ref: RDFC22/HLS/PSY/SANTHI )

Sleep serves a functional role in cognitive wellbeing across our lifespan. It is a sensitive indicator and predictor of mental problems in healthy and pathological aging. Read more

Exploring the Molecular Mechanism of Novel Mitochondrial Neurotoxins identified through a Machine Learning Approach

Mitochondrial inhibition is an important ‘OFF-target’ mechanism of drug-induced toxicity in the clinic, contributing to drug attrition in clinical trials and drug withdrawal following approval because of severe adverse events 1. Read more

Biopsychosocial Prediction Models of Pain Management Programme (PMP) Outcomes for Chronic Pain

Project background. Chronic pain is moderately or severely disabling in an estimated 8-12% of the UK population. Those struggling to cope are often referred to multidisciplinary Pain Management Programmes (PMPs), currently considered best practice for intractable chronic pain. Read more

Effects of exercise on brain function, food cravings, and appetite

Unhealthy dietary choice is one of the major causes of obesity, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and Type 2 diabetes (T2D). Despite evidence suggesting that a healthy diet reduces the risk of obesity, CVD and T2D, the impulse to consume highly palatable foods is difficult to be inhibited. Read more

Investigating the sex-dependent effects of macrophage insulin resistance on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a spectrum of liver diseases in part driven by macrophages. Premenopausal females exhibit protection from NAFLD and macrophages express estrogen receptors which have been shown to augment and dampen innate immune signalling pathways. Read more

Investigating changes in neuronal development and connectivity in a mouse model of muscimol-induced perinatal brain injury

Disruption of normal brain development during pregnancy and in infancy can lead to life-long neurological disorders. As the brain develops, there is increasing complexity of cellular structure, connectivity and functional activity. Read more

Task responses in the mouse somatosensory cortex during flexible behaviour

  Research Group: Neuroscience
Background. Mammals have strikingly flexible and adaptable behaviour. When facing new surroundings or a new task, they can extract the situation’s underlying structure (e.g. Read more

Methods for ultrasensitive and quantitative multimodal molecular imaging of vascular inflammation

About the project. Imaging agents enable researchers to explore animal models and investigate human pathologies non-invasively and secure crucial data to understand the onset and progression of diseases and conditions at the molecular level. . Read more

Imaging the contribution of early cerebrovascular inflammation in Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other neurodegenerative diseases are associated with chronic peripheral inflammation. About 40% of the population in western countries live with insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, arterial hypertension, and obesity-related to lifestyle habits (e.g., Western-diet, tobacco addiction).
