Insects: A Sustainable Novel Antimicrobial and Protein Source for Livestock

Food security is a global challenge and there is an urgent need to increase the protein supply from sustainable sources. Currently more than 80% of the protein requirements for livestock rearing in the EU is imported from non-EU countries. Read more

Phytochemicals as safe and sustainable antibiotic alternative for effective control of pathogenic organisms in humans and animals

The use of antibiotics in livestock has significantly contributed to animal health and welfare as well as high quality of food production in modern farming but has also been linked to the rapid development and global spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Read more

Why do some lineages survive mass extinctions? A global research program in the era of an emerging human-induced mass extinction

Mass extinction events wipe out >75% of the planet’s biodiversity – the other quarter (or less), survives. Human-induced environmental change is dragging modern biodiversity into an emerging mass extinction that threatens the ecosystems we depend on. Read more

The role of stress-mediated post-translational modifications in the regulation of histone demethylase KDM4A

We recently discovered that KDM4A is one of the proteins responsible for a specific type of epigenetic modification required for regulation of rRNA transcription activation and showed that a major cellular growth and survival signalling pathway (the PI3K pathway) controls cellular localisation of KDM4A, which is critical for its functions.

Strategies to shift our population to a more plant-based diet: consumer considerations

Consumer shift to a more plant-based diet. Significant transformations to our current food system are needed if we are to feed the rapidly expanding global population whilst maintaining planetary health. Read more

Investigating the nature and implications of archaea-bacteria interactions

Studies of the Domain Archaea have historically been considered a small, niche sub-field of microbiology, due to their largely extremophilic nature and consequent restriction to a few key environments. Read more

Functional exploration of a parasitic nematode non-coding RNA secretome

This fully-funded three-year PhD project will provide training in state-of-the-art molecular and bioinformatics methods, and aims to yield fundamental insights into the dynamics of molecular interactions between nematode parasites and their mammalian hosts during infection. Read more
