Second generation nano-carriers for pancreatic cancer therapy

Hybrid iron oxide-gold nanoparticles have been shown to have great potential as theranostic agents for cancer therapy. The iron oxide core can be used for diagnostic imaging using MRI whilst the gold surface possesses unique optimal properties. Read more

Leaky waveguide analysis of neutrophil migration and degranulation

Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell in circulation and are the first line for innate defence. This means that these cells locate to a site of injury and/or infection very quickly and initiate the body’s response. Read more

Targeting DNA replication and repair in human cancer cells

DNA replication is the fundamental mechanism of genetic inheritance and an essential process for all cellular life. In cancer cells, replication is corrupted and replication forks frequently stall and collapse causing DNA damage and copying errors that drive tumorigenesis. Read more

Ph.D. position - Novel coralline scaffold-based repair of brain damage following injury and disease

Available Ph.D. position. Novel coralline scaffold-based repair of brain damage following injury and disease. Finding means to repair brain damage is one of the major goals in biology and regenerative medicine, as it is a major cause of mortality worldwide. Read more

Autonomous Microfluidic Platform for Healthcare Applications

The vision is to develop a complete, self-contained and self-powered microfluidic platform that has the sensitivity and selectivity of the current best clinical diagnostics (such as ELISA) but which can be used by anybody, anywhere and at any time with results reported in minutes. Read more

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

3D Electrospinning - shaping the structure of tissue engineering scaffolds

  Research Group: Advanced Materials Engineering
Electrospinning applies a high voltage to a polymer solution to create fine fibres that form non-woven mats. These can be used as scaffolds for tissue engineering, acting as the extracellular matrix and supporting the cells. Read more

Ankle moment contribution in everyday tasks: effects of ageing

  Research Group: Medical Engineering
There is a fall on stairs every 90 seconds in the UK, and an estimated 250,000 non-fatal accidents which are serious enough to merit a trip to A&E. Read more

Glioblastoma: A Nanotechnology Approach for Glioblastoma Targeted Therapy

  Research Group: Medical Engineering
Glioblastoma is a type of brain cancer. It’s the most common type of malignant brain tumor among adults and it is usually very aggressive, which means it can grow fast and spread quickly. Read more

Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs). Read more
