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.

Project

PhD in Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences: Investigating the childhood neurodevelopmental origins of adult mental illness

Childhood neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) such as autism and ADHD affect 10% of children, and this group are at hugely elevated risk of mental illnesses such as depression and psychosis.

Project

PhD in Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences: Genomic stratification of bipolar disorder trajectories and outcome

The aim of this project is to explore the potential of genetic and genomic data for clinical stratification in bipolar disorder.

Project

PhD in Cancer and Genetics: Imbalance of DNA methylation and demethylation as pathogenic mechanism of acute myeloid leukemia

Large genomic analyses have revealed patterns of non-random mutations of epigenetic modifiers (EMs) within a great number of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) patients.

Project

PhD in Infection and Immunity: Defining the molecular pathways governing antiviral Natural Killer cell immunity

Natural killer (NK) cells are critical members of the immune response that is mounted against infection, and can also target the development and progression of cancers.

Project

PhD in Infection and Immunity: Characterising entry and fusion of wildtype human cytomegalovirus (HCMV)

HCMV is the leading infectious cause of congenital malformation, and a major cause of morbidity and mortality in transplant and AIDS patients.

Project

PhD in Infection and Immunity: Systemic immune fingerprints in patients with acute severe sepsis

Sepsis is an illness in which a severe infection triggers a systemic inflammatory response that is disproportionate to the primary infective insult.

Project

PhD in Cancer and Genetics: The role of Wnt signalling in blood stem cell development and in acute myeloid leukaemia

Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a highly variable disease making it difficult to treat, particularly as normal blood cell development is blocked.

Project

PhD in Population Medicine: Factors influencing engagement with emerging technology in colorectal cancer screening and prevention

Uptake in the bowel cancer-screening program in Wales (54%) is a significant problem, which will be addressed somewhat by this project..

Project

PhD in Cancer and Genetics: Development of chimeric adenoviral virotherapies for cancer applications

This project will use sophisticated techniques to understand the basic mechanisms by which viruses use healthy cells to cause disease, and state-of-the-art molecular techniques to modify how viruses infect cells. 

Project

PhD in Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences: Dynamics of the expanded CAG locus in Huntington’s disease

Huntington’s disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant neurodegeneration usually of mid-life onset. and leads to death after 15-20 years.

Project

PhD in Population Medicine: Understanding multi-party communication in therapy sessions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and sensory processing (SP) difficulties

Sensory processing (SP) difficulties are very common in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which can result in behavioural difficulties and poor motor control.

Project

PhD in Population Medicine: The role of grandparents in shaping young children’s diet during the provision of childcare

The project will generate important insights into the factors that shape grandparents’ food practices in relation to their grandchildren, and promote a healthy diet.
