  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round
Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Bioengineering stem cells for neuroprotection against stroke
  Dr N Vasudevan, Dr E Delivopoulos, Prof S Nasuto
Applications accepted all year round
"Stroke, in particular ischaemic stroke, is the third major cause of death worldwide and there is significant health impairment in survivors.
  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round
"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round
The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
  Biomedical time series signal and image de-noising and classification
  Dr S Hadjiloucas
Applications accepted all year round
The purpose of the work is to develop novel signal processing tools to perform biomedical time series analysis and classification (ECG, EMG, EEG, MRI or hyperspectral images).
  British mosquito ecology: investigating the role of ecological traits, invasion status, and environmental factors in determining the distribution and seasonality of insect vectors in the UK
  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
  Cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs targeting the extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) cascade
  Prof A Clerk
Applications accepted all year round
"Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The contractile cells of the heart, cardiomyocytes, possess many protective mechanisms, allowing them to withstand pathophysiological stresses.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round
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.
