Use of a novel conjugation approach to generate a long-acting growth hormone receptor antagonist

Targeting the growth hormone (GH) signalling pathway could be an effective therapeutic approach for certain types of cancer. However, a lack of access to therapeutics that target GH or the GH receptor has hindered preclinical studies in this field. Read more

Neonatal hypoglycaemia guidelines

Neonatal hypoglycaemia is the most common metabolic disturbance in newborns and a preventable cause of irreversible brain injury. Read more

Low Glucose Levels in Babies

We know that low glucose levels in newborn babies can lead to brain injury, but we do not know how low these levels need to be for how long in which babies, and whether other factors also influence whether brain injury occurs. Read more

Cancer Epigenetics project

Broad Project Summary: Cancer is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Epigenetic changes are now recognised as a hallmark feature of cancer, but our understanding of factors that are responsible for tumour spread still remains limited. Read more

Charting new neuronal survival pathways in Parkinson’s disease

The Neurodegenerative and Lysosomal Disease Laboratory is interested in uncovering the unknown molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly in the development of Parkinson’s disease and Batten disease. Read more

Genetic causes of novel neurodevelopmental disorders

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Novel disease genes in brain development and decline

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Exploring a novel neurodevelopmental disease gene using a zebrafish model

The Rare Disorder Genetics / Bicknell lab is interested in characterising novel genetic syndromes, with three core motivations. -the difference we can make to families with rare disorders, through providing them with more information. Read more

Identify novel approaches to combat multi drug resistant pathogens

Our research is focused on recalcitrant ESKAPE (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, andEnterobacter species) pathogens; especially hard-to-treat clinical isolates involved in multidrug resistance, biofilm infections and persistence.

Protecting Mum: how hormones act on neural circuitry to regulate postpartum mood and behaviour

Mammals give birth to dependent offspring and significant parental involvement is required to ensure offspring survive. During pregnancy and in the early postpartum period, hormones act on neural circuitry to bring about key changes in a mother's mood and behaviour. Read more

Role of RyR2 posttranslational modification in arrhythmias

Cardiac arrhythmias remain the leading cause of death in patients with heart disease. An important trigger for arrhythmias is the inappropriate opening of the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2). Read more
