Our research is focused around ten main themes which tackle some of the major global health challenges facing our society and addressing fundamental questions about how we work to gain a better understanding of how we can treat disease and repair our bodies.
This theme is trying to understand the cause of decline in the function of neuronal networks during ageing.
This theme explores the molecular mechanisms that underpin antimicrobial resistance in facilitating microbial survival under drug and immune challenge.
This theme is exploring novel molecular detection modalities, biomarkers and assay integration strategies
This theme is investigating developmental mechanisms at molecular, genetic and cellular level.
This theme explores the challenges of infectious diseases and the profound effects that the collapse of geographical space and increasing population growth have had on their disease epidemiology
This theme is investigating host-pathogen interactions that are vital to our understanding of host biology, infectious diseases and effective therapies.
This theme is exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underpin cell and tissue differentiation, resilience to injury, and repair processes.
This theme is investigating the function and regulation of organs and tissue.
This theme is studying the cellular and circuit mechanisms underpinning nervous system functions.
This theme explores how Systems-type and Big Data-based approaches can be used to advance our understanding of the pathogenesis of infectious diseases.
