Characterising blood-brain barrier formation and function using zebrafish to understand human vascular hyperpermeability

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a highly selectively permeable network of blood vessels within the brain. This barrier is essential for central nervous system (CNS) homeostasis by controlling molecular flux between the blood and the brain and protecting it from pathogens and toxins. Read more

Characterising congenital heart disease variants in Drosophila

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common congenital defect affecting approximately 1% of live births contributing to a significance incidence of birth-defect related mortality. Read more

Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system. Read more

Determining tumour state using DNA methylation

This project is a collaboration between three research groups. Prof Skirmantas Kriaucionis research group aims to elucidate the molecular function of DNA modifications in normal cells, leading to the understanding of how defective pathways contribute to the neoplasia. Read more

Molecular mechanisms of action and basis of resistance to hypomethylating agents in cancer

The student will be supervised by two supervisors. Prof Skirmantas Kriaucionis research group aims to elucidate the molecular function of DNA modifications in normal cells, leading to the understanding of how defective pathways contribute to the neoplasia. Read more

Single Molecule-based Detection of Mutations in Non-clonal cells

This project is a collaboration between two research groups. Prof Skirmantas Kriaucionis research group aims to elucidate the molecular function of DNA modifications in normal cells, leading to the understanding of how defective pathways contribute to the neoplasia. Read more

PhD studentship opportunity in Environment and Health

We invite applications for a 3-year PhD studentship in the MRC Centre for Environment and Health and National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funded Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Environmental Exposures and Health. . Read more

Why cell position matters in cancer: role of epigenetic factors

Although cancers are highly mutated, it is factors above and beyond those mutations that allow a tumor to form. These factors include epigenetic gene programs embedded within the cell of origin (Baggiolini, et al, Science 2021). Read more

MPhil Characterising biomolecule degradation in ancient skeletal remains

The University of Manchester’s Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health (. https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/. ) is offering one funded MPhil project on the study of biomolecule degradation patterns in mummified and skeletal human remains from the Nile Valley region. Read more

Noise-induced transitions in gene regulatory networks

Our world is full of noise sources at different spatial and temporal scales. The temperature and sunlight changes day to night. A receptor protein interacts with its target molecule undergoing Brownian motion. Read more

Role of APC/C subunit post-translational modifications on the function of the APC/C in mitosis

The APC/C is a large macromolecular E3 ubiquitin ligase, that, through targeting protein substrates for polyubiquitylation and 26S proteasome-mediated degradation coordinates the progression of cells through mitosis (1, 2). Read more

Viral regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses and possess a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long been used as a tool to dissect the molecular basis of key biological processes such as growth, differentiation and death. Read more
