SELF-FUNDING MSc BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Cystic fibrosis: restoring ion transport with small molecules

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by dysfunction of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a unique ATP-binding cassette transporter that functions as an ATP-gated anion channel, playing a pivotal role in salt and water movement across epithelial tissues (1). 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.

Unravelling the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying chemoresistance in cancer

Background. Failure to execute apoptosis is a hallmark of cancer. Most chemotherapeutic agents kill cancer cells by inducing apoptosis, however resistance is often acquired over time, resulting in tumour relapse. Read more

Antibiotic resistance and biofilm formation in the WHO priority pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii

The McCarthy Lab at Brunel University London is excited to offer a fully funded PhD studentship to study how Acinetobacter baumannii can survive exposure to antibiotics and form a biofilm. Read more

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

Role for deSUMOylation Enzyme SENP3 in the Regulation of Pexophagy Linked to Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorders

Peroxisomal Biogenesis Disorders (PBDs) such as Zellweger syndrome (1) refers to a group of diseases caused by genetic mutations in one of the membrane proteins (PEXs) responsible for biogenesis of the peroxisomes. Read more
