Defining the Epigenome in Tendon Ageing

One hallmark of ageing is the accumulation of epigenetic alterations. There is a clear link between age and increasing incidence of tendon injury suggesting that the mechanical integrity of tendon declines with age. Read more

Influence of gut-brain axis on Alzheimer's diseases

Applications are invited for a self-funded three-year PhD. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, and will be supervised by Dr Murphy Wan and Professor Jerome Swinny. Read more

The evolution of mating systems and parental care: phylogenetic analyses

Mating systems and parental care are some of the most variable social traits. The project uses vertebrate diversity to understand the evolution of breeding system variation in fishes, amphibians, reptiles birds and mammals. Read more

Sex and Reproduction During the Evolution of Apes

 . Reproduction is the prime imperative for species and even helps define life itself. For humans, reproductive biology, mating behaviours, and parenting overlap in profound and complex ways throughout our lives. Read more

Robotics, Biomechatronics and Control

This project covers themes of bioinspiration for robotics and control but also include non-bioinspired areas that might focus on industrial or healthcare/medical applications. Read more

Obtaining an integrated understanding of oncogenic RAS signalling

The RAS family of small GTPases act as signalling hubs regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. The physiological importance of RAS signalling is evident as about 25% of all human cancers harbour mutations in ras genes, where kras is most frequently mutated (about 18%) (COSMIC, v94). Read more

Prostate cancer signalling to the bone micro-environment - from molecular characterization to potential novel therapies.

About the Project. Prostate cancer is responsible for over 52,000 cancer diagnoses within the UK per annum, and is the most common cancer in males, accounting for 27% of all new cancer cases diagnosed within men in 2016-2017. Read more

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
