Self funded MSc by Research or PhD in Biology: Ion channel signalling in cancer cells

Lead supervisor: Dr W Brackenbury. The student will be registered with the Department of Biology. Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. Read more

Understanding how mutations in the kinase TLK2 cause a neurodevelopmental disorder

Tousled-like kinase 2 (TLK2) was recently identified as a novel genetic locus for a neurodevelopmental disorder. Patients predominantly possess de novo mutations in TLK2, leading to a reduction in its expression or kinase activity. Read more

Role of the endosomal pathway in regulating sleep and circadian rhythms

Ageing and many neurodegenerative disorders are characterised by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to behavioural changes including cognitive decline, sleep disruption and circadian dysregulation. Read more

Ion channel signalling in cancer cells

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing. Read more

Common genetic origins of visual and neurocognitive disorders

There is emerging evidence that apparently distinct neurodegenerative diseases have common genetic origins. For example, genes such as ARMS2 and HTRA1, which are fundamental to regulating neuronal health, are implicated in both dementia and diseases of the retina (particularly age-related macular degeneration).
