PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Studying human neuropsychiatric disease in DLG2 deficient human neurons

This PhD project in Medicine tries to understand DLG2’s role during neural development and in mature neurons using variety of techniques.


Chromatin dynamics in Huntington's disease

The aim of this project is to investigate whether chromatin structure influences CAG repeat expansion in Huntingtin, and whether repeat expansion in turn alters chromatin structure.


Dynamic models for mesenchymal stem cells: a 3-D ex vivo culture system mapped to existing 2-D differentiation models

The aim of this project is to obtain appropriate kinetic and phenotypic maps that allow us to understand the cell and molecular aspects of tissue and dentine regeneration.


Advanced virotherapies for immuno-oncolytic applications

This project will develop refined virotherapies for the delivery immunotherapies in vivo.


Mitochondria and peroxisome crosstalk in neurons: How and why?

This project will use novel in vivo Drosophila genetic approaches and CRISPR cell culture techniques to investigate mitochondria and peroxisomes.


Optimising expansion of CD8+ T cells for immunotherapy

This study aims to generate new understanding/reagents that will enable the expansion of highly functional T-cells for immunotherapy.


Ehmt1 and the epigenetic control of genomic imprinting in neurodevelopmental disorders

This project will explore whether haploinsuffficiency of Ehmt1 leads to abnormal genomic imprinting during neurodevelopment.


Understanding how C-type lectin-like receptors collaborate to clear fungal infections

The aim of this project is to determine whether CLR targeting/co-engagement could have therapeutic benefits.


Control of CD4+ T cell responses by human gamma/delta T cells

The objective of this project is to define the molecular mechanisms underlying CD4+ T-cell polarisation by γ5 T-cells and identify ways to manipulate them for future interventions.


Dissecting the impact of L-selectin proteolysis on T lymphocyte dependent virus immunity

This project will determine how fragments of digested L-selectin control the ability of killer T cells to detect and kill virus.


Mechanisms controlling the switch between the pro- and anti-fibrotic functions of the long non-coding natural anti-sense to hyaluronan synthase 2

This project will dissect, at the molecular level, the mechanisms that regulate HAS2-AS1 expression/function leading to a HA-dependent pro-fibrotic cell-phenotype and which can be used as potential novel therapeutic targets.
