  • Professor Andrew Fisher

    Teaching Philosophy to the young - esp. primary school children. Philosophy of Education - who should teach what? And who decides? Inclusivity in the classroom, safe spaces and trigger warnings, private schools and faith schools - should they exist? Cases for positive discrimination in admission to university. Philosophy of religion - religion vs science, reasons for/against God, demarcation of religion etc; Ethics - moral truth, moral facts, God and morality - how could they be linked? Applied ethics, normative ethics. Equality, diversity and inclusion - implicit bias, stereotype threat, chilly climates, decolonization of the curriculum, microaggressions, gender and sex, etc.

    Emerging viruses of veterinary and human interest (e.g. influenza viruses and flaviviruses). Dr Daly's main research interests are in emerging and re-emerging RNA viruses, particularly zoonotic viruses such as influenza A viruses and the flaviviruses (Dengue, Japanese encephalitis, West Nile and Zika) but also including, orthobunyaviruses more recently.She studies the complex interactions between viruses and their host to try to better understand determinants of viral pathogenicity. She also has an interest in factors influencing interspecies transmission and the use of mathematical models to further understanding of disease transmission.Dr Daly has appeared on radio (BBC Material World) and regional TV news programmes in the UK and Croatia. She has also written for lay publications such as Horse and Hound magazine. Janet is also a mountaineer and dog lover.

  • Nashiru Billa

    My research expertise is within the realm of nanoparticulate drug delivery which essentially means using nanotechnology to formulate drug carriers for the purpose of enhancing their availability where needed in the body. I am particularly interested in utilising natural materials in the construction of nanoparticulate carriers because of their 'acceptability' to biological systems. In this regard we have used chitosan, bees wax, cocoa butter, coconut oil etc to successfully construct nanoparticulate carriers for several therapeutic agents. I also have expertise in formulating therapeutic agents from plant sources in nano-particulates for treating diseases like cancer and we are currently studying how the active constituent from turmeric (curcumin) can be packaged into a nanoparticle system in the treatment of colon cancer.
