Targeting the extracellular matrix remodelling for the treatment of obesity-associated cardio-renal dysfunction

Obesity is a risk factor for many chronic metabolic diseases including heart failure and chronic kidney disease. Our lab demonstrated a tight association between increased deposition of extracellular matrix components (e.g. Read more

Investigating functional and kinematic alterations in upper limb motion following clavicular malunions in adults using 3-D kinematic analysis and functional tasks.

Current evidence suggests displaced, mid-shaft clavicle fractures can be managed conservatively with satisfactory long-term functional outcomes, although critically other studies suggest 42% of people have residual sequalae; including deficit in shoulder strength and endurance. Read more

Targeting Ras palmitoylation for the treatment of cancer

Lay summary. Proteins can be thought of as molecular machines that carry out work within cells. Protein activity can be regulated through the reversible attachment of certain chemical groups to specific amino acids within proteins. Read more

Exploring cultural and structural factors that support equity, diversity, inclusion and respect in medical schools.

There is growing recognition of the importance of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Respect (EDIR) issues captured formally in medical schools by the requirements of the Athena SWAN award, Stonewall and the Race Equality Charter. Read more

Interdisciplinary investigation of a large effect of sulfasalazine on HbA1c

The anti-inflammatory drug sulfasalazine, which is used in rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, was reported earlier to suppress HbA1c in a small cohort of patients [1]. Read more

Interdisciplinary investigation of the role of amino acids in immunometabolic responses to metformin in human cells

There is overwhelming evidence that inflammation contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) but counterbalancing this is evidence from meta-analysis of randomised control trials that many existing anti-inflammatory drugs, such as COX2 inhibitors and anti-TNF drugs, tend if anything to exacerbate risk of CVD.
