Expanding the synthetic capabilities of Escherichia coli using synthetic biology

Supervisors: Stephen Wallace, Susan Rosser

Project description:

This project aims to use modern synthetic biology and synthetic chemistry techniques to create new recombinant microbes for use in synthetic biotechnology. In particular, we are interested in engineering E. coli cells to perform reaction sequences that are not found in Nature.[1]

Delivery of Raman active nanoparticles to dopaminergic neurons to investigate age-related protein aggregation

Supervisors: Alison Hulme, Tilo Kunath

Project description:

This project will investigate age-associated protein aggregation within neurons using Raman active ‘loaded’ nanoparticles delivered both to human dopaminergic neurons in culture, and into the brain of a genetic rat model that has α-synuclein aggregation.
