Biodegradation of polyfluorinated chemicals in fire-fighting foams

Polyfluorinated alkyl substances(PFAS) have been used for decades as ingredients in fire-fighting foams. In the last few years, it has been realised that this has led to widespread more...

Computational approaches to elucidate Multiple Sclerosis and Contact Dermatitis pathogenesis, and its treatment through ultraviolet light exposure

Allergies and autoimmunity are complex immune system aberrations. Both involve multiple immune cell populations coordinating across several organs of the body. The growing prevalenc more...

Characterising insulin secretory granules as a function of age

In β-cells, insulin is stored in secretory granules (SGs). Upon stimulation, these SGs deliver insulin to the bloodstream. It is known that SGs exist in two functionally distin more...

Sorting proinsulin into secretory vesicles

Reduction in glucose-stimulated mature insulin secretion and increased constitutive and regulated secretion of proinsulin are characteristics of β-cell failure. This may be due more...

Improving the Health of Urbanised Estuaries

The rehabilitation of contaminated sediments in urbanised estuaries is hindered by the lost of animals key to improving sediment and water quality, such as oysters. Despite being a more...

Mechanisms of Transgenerational Epigenetic inheritance

We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that allow a phenomenon called epigenetic inheritance to occur: that is, the transmission of non-genetic information from more...
