Improving temperature observations from Space to close the energy budget of the Earth in support of UNFCCC objectives and the Paris Agreement

Since the 19th century the Earth has warmed by around 1.2˚C with climate models being key tools for predicting future warming. The main impact of GHGs on the Earth’s system is a reduction in energy exiting the top of the atmosphere and increased energy storage in the Earth system. Read more

Environmental factors in COVID-19 susceptibility and recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in >100,000 deaths and >4m confirmed cases in the UK alone. Potentially 1 in 10 of cases have long-term symptoms (‘long COVID’) and slow recovery. Read more

Evaluation of an online self-management resource for people with Chronic Kidney Disease

The role of copper resistance in Staphylococcus aureus infection

Excess copper is highly toxic and forms part of the host innate immune system’s antibacterial arsenal, accumulating at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens. Read more

The effect of air pollution on bacterial infection and host-pathogen interaction.

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017). Read more
