Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use

Project Overview. This project uses phylogenetic comparative methods to characterise medicinal plant use. You will use published data to identify the ethnobotanical uses of selected species, and the extent to which they are characterised in terms of phytochemistry and pharmacology. Read more

Biomechanics and activity analysis in the wild

Project Overview. Movement analysis and recording in humans has been confined to dedicated gait and motion capture facilities, but this only records movements for a single part of one day in an unusual environment. Read more

Fractional order modelling of neurons

Project Overview. Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering. Read more

Plant-insect interactions in a changing world

Project Overview: . Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to multiple important ecosystem services. Read more

Systems level analysis of platelet signalling

We are interested in how intracellular signal transduction networks bring about complex biological behaviours in cells. We do this by combining computational biology with wet laboratory experimentation. Read more

Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process. Read more

Understanding the role of livestock management on invertebrate communities of wet pastures

The supervisory team comprises. Glyn Barrett (School of Biological Sciences at the University of Reading), Robin Buxton (Patsy Wood Trust) and Ben Woodcock (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology). Read more

Examining the mechanisms that cause cardiovascular disease by studying the heart or adipose tissue

Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack. Read more
