Leeds University Business School/Food Standards Agency PhD Studentship

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) commissioned an innovative study that involved installing motion sensitive cameras in food businesses and domestic kitchens to record and analyse behaviour around food hygiene and safety practices. Read more

Understanding the structural consequences of ribosome specialisation

Protein synthesis by ribosomes (translation) and its regulation is essential to life. While it has been traditionally thought that ribosomes were not involved in the regulation of translation, it is now becoming clear that they do contribute. Read more

Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow. Read more

Control and inhibition of virus replication

The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specifically Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.

Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens

Antibiotics make possible the treatment and cure of life-threatening bacterial infections. Since their introduction in the middle years of the 20th Century, they have added ~10 years to the human lifespan, and have become a cornerstone of modern medicine. Read more

Co-benefits and Trade-offs for Regenerative Agriculture

Project description. Nearly 70% of UK land area and 50% of European Union (EU) land is used for agriculture. These landscapes have been shaped by centuries of large-scale human impacts through traditional or intensive land-use systems. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more
