  • Doctoral student in a lab

    During the course of this project, suitable signal processing and machine learning algorithms will be developed to model the brain function and recognise the state of anomaly in the brain function for a particular abnormality.

    The aim of this research project is to create and develop an advanced prototype of a modular robotics design system. The system will enable the user to specify, design and produce the appropriate data for the manufacture of bespoke robotic systems for utilisation within the food production and packaging industry.

  • Doctoral student in a lab

    We would like to investigate and understand the processes involved in Lung development, such as, cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis that are modulated/deregulated during development leading to the development of Lung disease and cancer. The discovery of numerous non-coding RNAs has dramatically changed our understanding of cell biology, and we aim to investigate their role in lung epithelial development. Research into the roles of miRNAs in lung development and disease is at the early stages.

  • Doctoral student in a lab

    Our work to date highlights that in diabetics there is a significant alteration in how the spinal cord sensory neurons modulates sensory information following alterations in neurovascular coupling. We wish to establish how hyperglycaemia drives sensory neuron excitability in the spinal cord to develop new treatment approaches for diabetic neuropathic pain.

  • Doctoral student in a lab

    Overall the project will involve use of artificial and computational intelligence techniques, neural network based modelling, including probabilistic neural network systems and researching computational approaches for studying synaptic modification utilising computational neuroscience learning spike sorting algorithms.

  • Doctoral student in a lab

    The project will involve an interdisciplinary mix of medicinal and synthetic organic chemistry, computational chemistry, for the design and screening of potential lead structures and hands on biology testing potential candidates. Appropriate training will be given in all aspects of the project.

    Our study aims to investigate that low maternal B12 levels could alter epigenetic mechanisms either though methylation or miRNAs and could have profound effect on tissue-specific gene expression. This study will contribute in understanding the role of micronutrients on the health of the mother and their babies and would offer novel opportunities to reduce the risk of metabolic disease in next generation.

    This project will specifically focus a novel miRNA, and their role in skin and hair follicle development by regulating potentially skin stem cells and skin keratinocytes proliferation and differentiation.

    We would like to understand the processes, such as, cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis that are modulated/deregulated during mammary gland development leading to the development of breast cancer. The discovery of numerous non-coding RNAs has dramatically changed our understanding of cell biology, especially the pathophysiology of breast cancer and we aim to investigate their role in breast cancer development using 3D models.
