The circadian clock as a regulator of information processing

Endogenous biological clocks are a ubiquitous feature of living organisms, driving rhythms in countless cellular and physiological functions, and influencing almost all biological processes. Read more

Lateral hypothalamus as a visual centre controlling arousal, autonomic function and reflex behaviours

In addition to supporting our conscious perception of the world around us, light and visual stimuli exert wide ranging effects on animal physiology and behaviour via hard-wired ‘reflexes’ which range from simple effects of light on sleep, alertness and neuroendocrine function to the avoidance of rapidly approaching objects.

Post stroke visual impairment: improving our risk assessment and service and care

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the UK. Visual impairment is common in stroke affecting two thirds of all stroke survivors of which many are permanent and severe visual impairments. Read more

Targeting Connexin and Pannexin channel signalling in Diabetic Retinopathy

  Research Group: Molecular Mechanisms and Long Term Conditions
Reference. SHLS20042. Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a microvascular consequence of diabetes mellitus (both Type 1 and Type 2) affecting more than a third of diabetics (affecting an estimated 100million people worldwide). 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.

Application of animal corneal cells for skin regeneration, tissue engineering and wound healing enhancement

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
Engineering of biological skin substitutes has progressed over the years from individual applications of skin cells, or biopolymer scaffolds, to combinations of cells and scaffolds for treatment, healing, and closure of acute and chronic skin wounds. Read more
