Exploring Molecular Pathways for Improved Neural Regeneration in Spinal Cord Injury

In the UK, 50,000 people currently live with spinal cord injury (SCI), and an additional 2,500 new cases are reported annually. SCI results in a permanent loss of sensation and movement, serving as a primary cause of paralysis for which effective treatments are currently unavailable. Read more

A novel role in mitochondrial homeostasis for the anti-ageing factor RBBP5

The mitochondrion has evolved from the endosymbiotic interaction of an alpha-proteobacterium and an archaeon. One major event during this evolution was the transferring of genes from the symbiont to the host. Read more

Development of enzymes for the sustainable synthesis of pharmaceutically relevant amides under aqueous conditions.

A PhD studentship is available to work on a multidisciplinary project led by Professor Andrew Carnell on the discovery and development of enzymes for application in the sustainable synthesis pharmaceutically relevant amides. Read more

The use of life course epidemiology to support the experimental characterisation of genetic variation

Project Background. There has been a rapid expansion in the generation of genetic sequence data over the last decade. Understanding the potential relevance of genetic mutations to human health remains challenging. Read more

The genetic map of human molecular phenotypes

Rationale. Genome wide associations studies (GWASs) have discovered many genetic associations with a large range of human traits, but the functional consequences of GWAS signals often remain elusive, as most GWAS signals reside in non-coding genomic regions. Read more

Identifying causal pathways to disease using DNA methylation predicted blood traits.

Project Background. Blood cell types have been implicated in pathogenesis of chronic diseases. Genome wide association studies have identified thousands of variants associated with blood trait variation. Read more

Harnessing the genetics of DNA methylation to understand context-specific gene regulation in disease

Project Background. Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered many genetic associations with health outcomes. However, most GWAS signals reside in non-coding regions and it is likely that GWAS variants confer their effects through a regulatory mechanism. Read more
