Molecular and in-silico interrogation of novel modes of binding at G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs)

We have recently identified, through advanced molecular modelling methods, a possible novel mode of binding of experimental subtype-selective ligands to beta adrenoceptors.The aim of this multidisciplinary project will be to design, synthesise and pharmacologically characterise a library of ligands to test this hypothesis more rigorously.

Understanding DNA repair in adult tissues: Precision cut lung slices (PCLS) as a model for repair mechanisms and testing of gene editing strategies

This PhD project will assess DNA repair and gene editing in native human lung tissue with the same tissue architecture and biological activity as that found in the body. The project will use patient-derived precision cut lung slices (PCLS) in vitro a model, and explore the DNA repair activity in the different stem cells, and post-mitotic cells.
