Course summary

Biomedicine focuses on the molecular mechanisms underpinning physiology, disease and the processes that drive repair and regeneration. The Division has a broad strength that spans biochemistry, cell biology, molecular genetics and signal transduction. The groups within Biomedicine focus on a variety of biological systems both in vivo and in vitro, and augment studies on human cell lines and tissues with studies in model organisms such as the mouse and Xenopus.

Biomedicine is a well-funded Division with excellent modern facilities for a broad range of techniques. It has close links with The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, the Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER), the Arthritis Research UK Biomechanics and Bioengineering Centre and also with the Cardiff CR-UK Cancer Centre. The Division also has numerous global academic and industrial partners.

Research

Research within the Division is relevant to several areas of human disease, but is particularly strongly linked to cancer and tissue repair. The spectrum of research activities include:

  • genetically engineered murine models of human cancer
  • epigenetics of normal development and disease
  • mammary cancer and cell death
  • stem/progenitor cells in mammalian organogenesis
  • pathophysiology of calcium signalling specifically related to pancreatitis
  • stem cell fate determination
  • inflammation, atherosclerosis and regulation of gene expression
  • molecular mechanisms of nutrient sensing
  • monoclonal antibody technologies to study onset of degenerative joint diseases
  • synovial joint biology
  • structure and function of the minor collagens of cartilage, cell signalling pathways associated with mechanical and cytokine-mediated cartilage degeneration
  • cartilage proteoglycan metabolism in osteoarthritis
  • cellular control of extracellular matrix secretion and organisation in connective tissues
  • signalling mechanisms regulating bone and cartilage turnover, in osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
