Analysing cancer networks evolution using graph neural networks

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Background. The classical model of cancer formation suggests that tumors arise from the stochastic accumulation of somatic mutations in key genes, called cancer driver genes, which equip an aberrant cell with the ability to escape apoptosis, elude the immune system and grow uncontrollably throughout the body [1].

Synthetic-evolution: linking genomics to biophysics to understand the rules of life.

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
The genome of every organism encodes genes and regulatory elements required for building and maintaining cells in homeostasis. However, it is still unknown what is the minimal set of genomic elements necessary and sufficient for cellular life. Read more

Understanding the genetic basis of cancer and associated comorbidities using heritability analysis

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Decades of research have shown that inherited mutations in key genes can trigger tumorigenesis. However, this evidence has been limited to low-frequency highly penetrant mutations, typically found in patients affected by cancer syndromes, which represent only a small fraction of all malignancies.

Brain rhythms and natural audiovisual speech

The main goal of our research group (Neural Oscillations in Multisensory Communication Group, Centre for Human Brain Health (CHBH)) is to understand the brain's information processing in human communication. Read more

Using ecological theory and data to improve industry's measurement of Biodiversity Net Gain

Rapid rate of biodiversity loss, and growing awareness of impacts on human wellbeing, has resulted in policies that infrastructure development should deliver a Net Gain in biodiversity. Read more

Physiological basis linking sleep continuity and age-related cognitive deficits: in vivo manipulation and monitoring of activity of layer 5 neurons in the cortex of mice

  Research Group: Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC)
A good night’s sleep is essential to maintain proper mental health. In particular, consolidated periods of sleep (i.e. sleep continuity) seem to be critical for cognition as reported in humans (Della Monica et al., 2018) and rodents (Rolls et al., 2011). Read more

Gaussian approximations with applications to retirement products

There is an ongoing retirement crisis in the world. Governments and insurance companies are searching for retirement products that cope with rising life expectancy and uncertain financial markets. Read more

Genetic and environmental factors conferring susceptibility to adverse respiratory impacts of air pollution

Wellcome Trust Studentship. Project. The impacts of air pollution are well recognised in terms of increased mortality but there is much less evidence available in terms of morbidity and potential modifying factors and surprisingly few studies on the impact on the lung. . Read more
