The Physics of Nanoscopic Liquid Droplets in Biology

  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
Liquid-liquid phase separation is emerging as a crucial phenomenon in living organisms (. https://doi.org/10.1126/. science.aaf4382. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Mechanistic dissection of intra-Golgi vesicle targeting

Intracellular vesicle transport is key for establishing compartmental identities, and therefore in defining eukaryotic cells. It is of utmost importance that vesicles reach the correct target membrane, otherwise compartmental identities become mixed. Read more

WR DTP iCASE fully-funded project with Eluceda : Engineering proteins for applications in biosensors

At the heart of many biosensors is a protein that has been engineered to bind the target molecule. To be able to perform this function, the protein needs to bind its target with high affinity and specificity while immobilised on a sensor surface. Read more

Understanding bacterial DNA gyrase for the development of novel antibiotics

  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
DNA gyrase is an enzyme found in all bacteria that can, uniquely, introduce supercoils into DNA. Its topoisomerase reaction involves the generation of transient double-stranded breaks in DNA. Read more

2D material devices for bio- and chemical- sensing

  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
Graphene and graphene-like two dimensional (2D) materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and transition metal oxides (TMOs), have attracted great attention for a wide variety of biosensing technologies in recent years. Read more

Novel mid-infrared photonic sensors for healthcare applications

  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
This project aims to develop miniaturized optical and microfluidic devices for a novel blood analysis system. The system will operate in the mid-infrared (MIR) wavelength (3-15 um) region and will be used to identify a wide range of biological and chemical molecules; this is the so-called “molecular fingerprint region”.

Deciphering the secrets of DNA condensation

  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
DNA molecules repel each other in water because they contain a high density of negative charges. However, this electrostatic repulsion is reverted to an attractive force in the presence of multivalent cations which can promote DNA condensation. Read more

DNA-bending Proteins for Nanotech

  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
DNA is the molecule that nature uses as genetic material and it rarely exists in a relaxed state inside cells. Read more

White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in Mechanistic Biology

We are the White Rose BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) in Mechanistic Biology, bringing together the research of the world-class molecular and cellular bioscience centres at the White Rose universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. Read more

Early detection of Alzheimer's disease using novel photonic technology

  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
A major issue in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the need to identify patients in the earliest phase of the disease. Read more
