Self-Assembling Peptides for Biomedical Applications

Designed short peptides can self-assemble into different nanostructures (such as nanoparticles, nanofibrils and hydrogels) through weak interactions and have a variety of applications. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Cytokine-dependent immune cell modulation through trained immunity

Your innate immune system is the first line of defence against infections, cancer and various physiological danger signals. Innate immune dysregulation is a central driver of various pathologies ranging from neurological diseases to immunological and metabolic disorders and cancers. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Neuronal Src kinases: oncogenes in brain development?

The challenges of the developing human brain include co-ordinating the birth and migration of 100 billion neurons and the formation of their 1000 trillion synaptic connections. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Functional analysis of CIZ1

We are interested in the structure, function and disease implications of the CIZ1 protein, and related factors involved in organisation of the mammalian cell nucleus. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Ion channel signalling in cancer cells

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Understanding and targeting the hypoxic response in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)

Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) is a master regulator of transcription, and its function is centrally involved in both normal haematopoiesis and in malignant transformation of blood cells causing acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Read more

The role of UV exposure and novel compounds on the immunogenicity and genotoxicity of skin cancer

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The major aims of this project are to investigate the effect of UV in the development of different skin cancers compared to spontaneously regressing precancerous lesion, keratoacanthoma; and the effect of a novel compounds such as the structurally modified retinoic acid in the treatment of skin cancers and other cutaneous lesions. Read more

Acoustic Tweezers for Cancer Early Diagnosis

THIS IS A SELF FUNDED PROJECT. Medical imaging modalities are commonly used in hospital for cancer screening, but they are unable to diagnose early tumour development due to the limitation of detection size. Read more

Cancer: 3D model of the brain tumour perivascular niche: developing new approaches to target brain tumours

Aggressive brain tumours have dismal outcomes. Patients with glioblastoma multiforme, or brain metastases arising from tumours in other part of the body such as melanoma and breast cancer, have a median survival of only 14 months when treated with surgery followed by radiation and chemotherapy.
