Neuroinflammation, glial cell dysfunction & neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are often associated with chronic neuroinflammation and glial cell dysfunction that acts to exacerbate neuronal damage and loss of synapses. Read more

Soft Robotics for Advanced Drug Delivery Powered by Machine Learning

The aim of this project is to harness the power of various artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to build advanced drug delivery systems for improved controlled and personalised medicines. Read more

The generation of new Penicillin variants

A PhD scholarship is available to synthesize and formulate new penicillin variants and examine their properties. It will involve the design and multi-step chemical synthesis of targets using techniques such as anhydrous reaction conditions, column chromatography, NMR, MS and HPLC. Read more

Evaluation of potential therapeutics in a mouse model of KCNT1-related epilepsy

  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
Human mutations in the KCNT1 gene, which encodes a sodium-activated potassium channel, results in severe and drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. Read more

Smoking and psoriasis: does smoking augment the angiogenic drive to the development of psoriasis and does smoking cessation have utility for psoriasis management?

Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A)-mediated angiogenesis plays a key role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis; a common, inflammatory disease associated with significant extracutaneous morbidity and psychological distress. Thus, patients with psoriasis live with a complex multi-system disease which be a barrier to healthy lifestyle choices. .

Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors

Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well.

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. Read more

Polmorphisms in cytosolic drug metabolising enzymes: a combined proteomics and modelling approach to clinical impact

Cytosolic drug metabolising enzymes such as aldehyde oxidase play a pivotal role in metabolism of drugs. However, research into cytosolic enzymes has been relatively neglected in comparison with membrane bound enzymes such as cytochrome P450 (CYP) and uridine 5’-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs).
