Our Students and Staff

Stella AdemowoOpeyemi Stella Ademowo

By identifying differences in the protein profile of inflammatory arthritis patients that respond to anti-TNF-α drugs compared with poor responders, we may be able to pinpoint biomarkers that can be used to predict response to treatment. Learn more about Stella's research.

Mattia BraminiMattia Bramini

Do engineered nanoparticles present a significant neuro-toxicological risk to humans? Using a laboratory model of the blood brain barrier, I aim to track the passage of nanoparticles across it using advanced imaging techniques. Learn more about Mattia's research.

Conway PhD student, Ashling HampsonAshling Hampson

Platelets are highly specialised cells that play a major role in the regulating blood flow and clotting. If we can characterise the molecular mechanisms involved in platelet granule secretion, we may be able to develop new targets for controlling platelet activation. Learn more about Ashling's research.

Lisa Shine

Lisa ShineUsing advanced techniques, we are deciphering the role that particular genes play in the development and function of our visual system. This knowledge might contribute to the development of new treatments for blindness in the future. Learn more about Lisa's research.
