EASTBIO: Exploring the potential to manipulate macrophage behaviour in salivary gland regeneration

Radiation injury is characterised by an influx of inflammatory cells. Macrophages have long been considered key cells in the tissue repair process, but they can have both beneficial and detrimental effects on damage resolution and tissue repair, depending on their phenotype and the niche they inhabit.

EASTBIO Investigating the Assembly of Bacterial Encapsulins for the Efficient Engineering of Nanoscale Bioreactors

Encapsulins are bacterial capsid-like nanocompartments roughly 25-30 nm in diameter. These large protein assemblies are made up of either 60 or 180 copies of a single 30 kDa protomers which assemble to form a hollow icosahedral protein cage. Read more

EASTBIO Using chemistry to reveal nuclear architecture - Multiplexed labelling of RNA, DNA and proteins

The aim of this PhD project is to develop and use biorthogonal chemistry tools to simultaneously label DNA and RNA, and to visualise them together with proteins, namely SAF-A, using super-resolution microscopy. Read more

EASTBIO: Developing ex-vivo models to understand lung damage and repair

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
This will be the text that is advertised to prospective students. This project is driven by the need to find new treatments that can repair damaged lungs. Read more

EASTBIO: Dissecting the role of the immune system in tumour initiation using experimental & computational analysis

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Mechanisms that modulate leukocyte migration in vivo are fundamental to the function of the immune system. Leukocytes such as neutrophils and macrophages are first-line responders to many physiological and pathological changes in the tissue microenvironment, such as inflammation after injury or in cancer.

EASTBIO: Bioactive lipid mediators in the development and function of lung mononuclear phagocytes

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Mononuclear phagocytes (MNPs) including macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs) play critical roles in maintenance of tissue homeostasis, inflammation, and repair post injury. Read more

EASTBIO: Interrogating monocyte-stromal cell crosstalk in the intestine

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Macrophages are one of the most abundant leucocytes in the intestinal mucosa where they play fundamental roles in maintaining tissue homeostasis and repair following injury, insult or inflammation. Read more

EASTBIO: Small and non-invasive fluorescent labels for real-time imaging of protein function

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Peptides and proteins are abundant biomolecules that regulate many cellular functions. Genetically-encoded fluorescent proteins (FPs) have revolutionised our ability to image and study proteins inside live cells and organisms. Read more

EASTBIO Biocatalyst cascades for drug synthesis

Project Details. Natural and engineered biocatalysts are already having impact in the manufacture of high value pharmaceuticals by catalysing the conversion of functional groups in high yield. Read more

BBSRC EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership - Call for applications for 2022

Would you like to study for a PhD as part of a supportive collaborative partnership in Scotland? Would you like to be part of a vibrant community of bioscience… Read more

EASTBIO CASE Molecular engineering of the ubiquitin-proteasome system: A new approach to pathogen resistance in plants

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important crop worldwide and second in the UK. Diseases, including those caused by the brown rust pathogen, Puccinia hordei, cause barley yield losses of up to 40%. Read more
