Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions. Read more

Investigating the molecular mechanism of effector secretion by the bacterial type IV secretion system

The bacterial type IV secretion system (T4SS) translocates DNA-protein complexes, peptidoglycan and a wide range of effectors proteins into target cells and is responsible for multiple disease conditions in humans. Read more

Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use

Project Overview. This project uses phylogenetic comparative methods to characterise medicinal plant use. You will use published data to identify the ethnobotanical uses of selected species, and the extent to which they are characterised in terms of phytochemistry and pharmacology. Read more

Examining the mechanisms that cause cardiovascular disease by studying the heart or adipose tissue

Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack. Read more

Exploiting ERK5-signalling to modify T-cell behaviour during tumour progression and radiotherapy response: a new immunotherapy approach?

T-cells can attack tumours (so called anti-tumour responses), causing a reduction in tumour size or even elimination of the tumour. However, in many tumours the tumour “switches off” anti-tumour T-cell responses. Several immunotherapy drugs have been developed that switch anti-tumour T-cell responses back on in patients.

Pharmaceutical Sciences - Exploring novel experimental therapeutics for mitochondrial

Primary mitochondrial genetic disease manifestations can involve almost all aspects of the eye. Mitochondrial disorders of the eye are often devastating genetic diseases, causing significant childhood and young adult blindness in the developed world. Read more

Dietary intervention and efficacy in improving lipoedema symptoms among patients in the UK

About the Project. An ambitious and enthusiastic candidate is invited for one full-time PhD (self-funded or through an external fellow-ship application), starting any time between September 2021 and September 2022 (several intake times possible in this period). Read more

Targeting the MAPK scaffold protein KSR1 for the treatment of prostate cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of male cancer deaths. It arises when individual cells escape their normal growth control mechanisms and proliferate in an uncontrolled fashion. Read more
