It’s a Question of Balance – Broadening Concepts of Drug Discovery

Professor Colin Suckling discusses drug discovery and how a linear approach is no longer relevant… Since the 1960s it’s been accepted that the way to discover new drugs is to take a well-characterised disease with a good understanding of the biological cause of the disease.

Mathematical Modeling of Drug Delivery via Nanoparticles in Cancer Treatment

Cancer is a complex and heterogeneous disease. Despite all efforts to fight cancer, it continues to impact every segment of society. For example, many patients fail conventional cancer therapies, including chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery; and it is still difficult for physicians to predict a treatment outcome with certainty.

Settlement Archaeology Research in Egypt & Sudan

Ancient settlements and urban sites offer the keys to more direct understanding of cultures, but they are very challenging in exploration. The ERC Across-Borders project accepts this challenge and focuses on settlement patterns in Egypt and Sudan in the 2nd Millennium BC.

Neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative diseases are a growing global challenge as medical advances ensures more individuals live longer. By 2020 there will be more than 40 million individuals in the world with Alzheimer’s disease and by 2040, without the development of truly disease modifying drugs this will be more than 80 million.
