Modulating the ubiquitin ligase activity of MDM2

p53 tumour suppressor protein becomes activated in response to various genotoxic stresses and induces a variety signalling programmess to restore cellular homeostasis. Read more

Developing machine learning algorithms for early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma

Primary liver cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. The most common type of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which develops in the background of liver diseases, such as cirrhosis. Read more

Genomic Revolutions in Blood Donation Screening and Safety: The natural history of occult hepatitis B virus infections and their risk for blood transfusion.

A project in this area will investigate the occurrence and natural history of occult Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infections, the markers associated with transmission of HBV in blood and organ recipients and the development of additional methods to identify infectious donations and exclude them from the blood supply. Read more

Dissecting tumour stroma heterogeneity in high grade serous ovarian cancer using cutting edge mass spectrometry proteomics approaches

The High grade serous (HGS) ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynaecological cancer due to the limited availability of targeted therapies against the cancer cells, because only few targetable recurrent mutations have been identified in these cells. Read more

Understanding the drivers and impacts of disproportionate policing

About this project. The continued disproportionate representation of ethnic minority groups in the UK criminal justice system presents a significant challenge and priority for police, government, and society. Read more

Synthetic Biology Approaches to Sensing Pathogenic Viruses and Narcotics

Engineering biology and its place in sensing. One of the key attributes of life is the ability to respond to stimuli. Nature has evolved a wide array of molecules, tissues and organs that sense stimuli as diverse as light, taste, pressure, odour, pheromones and drugs. Read more

The Resistance of Ships with Multiscale Roughness

Understanding the hydrodynamics of marine coatings is critical to develop new products that minimise the friction resistance, the fuel consumption and the greenhouse emissions of marine transport. Read more

How do bacteria contribute to aggressive prostate cancer? – A joint lab/bioinformatics PhD studentship

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and ~307,000 men die every year. We know that infectious agents, such as bacteria and viruses, are involved in the development of a variety of cancers such as cervical, stomach, and bladder cancer. Read more

Plant communities and climbers in degraded and regenerating forest landscapes of Borneo

Tropical forests are becoming increasingly fragmented as a result of land-use pressures. Due to different land-use histories, remnant forests are not created equal; some are more structurally intact than others and this can alter the capacity for a forest to naturally regenerate. Read more

Restoring for a resilient future: Woodland community assembly trajectories in the face of multiple stressors

We seek a numerate, enthusiastic student with a passion for restoring woodland ecosystems and multi-disciplinary research. This project provides a unique opportunity to answer how an overlooked driver, surface-level ozone, influences above- and below-ground restoration trajectories of woodland plant communities. Read more

Understanding the role of nitrogen speciation in controlling the biodiversity of freshwater algal communities

The project. Freshwater ecosystems and the biodiversity they contain are among the most threatened ecosystems globally. Nutrient pollution via excessive inputs of nitrogen and phosphorus is perhaps the most significant pressure acting on these ecosystems. Read more
