An enzymology platform for evaluation and prioritisation of nucleotide analogues and ProTides

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Prodrugs are molecules that are administered to treat a certain disease but must be biochemically activated in the body to release the active drug. Read more

Tripartite Synapses – a Weak Link in MND?

Neurons transmit information via trillions of synapses found throughout the nervous system. Some synapses receive contacts from non-neuronal cells, called astrocytes, which ‘listen in’ on neuronal communication and signal back to modulate neural activity. Read more

Cosmological Modified Gravity simulations with massive sterile neutrinos

This project would involve setting up a large (>100 Mpc) cosmological simulation in the Modified Gravity (MOND) framework, but supplemented with 11 eV sterile neutrinos to make up the same total dark energy and matter density as in the Lambda Cold Dark Matter (ΛCDM) cosmology. Read more

PhD in Optoelectronic Materials or Photocatalysis

Members of the Zysman-Colman group conduct research at the interface of organic or organometallic optoelectronic materials, physical organic, and supramolecular chemistry. 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*: Decoding the genetics of cognitive functions

How did human cognitive abilities evolve? What are the genes involved in cognition? Are different cognitive functions, such as language and mathematical abilities, controlled by the same mechanisms? Answering these questions is very challenging, but unprecedented resources have allowed initial and highly promising discoveries in this field. Read more

*Eastbio*: Serum albumin glycation and its impact on Zn2+-dependent haemostasis and insulin dynamics

Zinc is an essential micronutrient in mammals, vital to virtually all physiological pathways and processes. High nanomolar concentrations of free zinc ions (Zn2+) are cytotoxic; therefore, extracellular zinc is usually well-buffered. Read more

EASTBIO Improving prawn aquaculture for food security and disease biocontrol

Environmental, sustainability and political concerns necessitate a review and reconfiguration of our food production systems, particularly for global commodities like shrimp and prawns. Read more

How does ISG15 regulate our innate immune response to viral infection?

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
Research in the Hughes lab at the University of St Andrews focuses on antiviral responses and the regulation of innate immunity. As part of our first-line defence against viral infection, our cells produce cytokines, such as interferons (IFN). Read more

EASTBIO Shaping tissues by pulsed contractions - studying how cells change shape during morphogenesis

  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
BACKGROUND. To shape tissues and organs, cells need to exert forces on their neighbours and respond to them. Individual cells can generate forces with their actin cytoskeleton. Read more

EASTBIO Memory for 'warning' patterns: a link to specific neural excitation

Many animals exhibit ‘warning signals’, patterns that include high contrast, spots or stripes and vivid colours. Although this makes them easier to see, the patterns are thought to have evolved to deter predators, who recognise the patterns as being exhibited by animals who are unpalatable or poisonous.
