Unlocking the secrets of the microbiome

Jethro Johnson, Deputy Director of the Oxford Centre for Microbiome Research explains how the centre is building a research community to understand the microbiome and harness its power to promote health and prevent disease.

Into the future: watching biology unfold

As part of the University of Oxford’s mission to provide its researchers with the newest state-of-the-art optical imaging equipment and as part of a strategic partnership with the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology (KIR), the Institute of Developmental and Regenerative Medicine (IDRM), and Carl Zeiss AG (ZEISS), ZEISS has installed a ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 microscope at the KIR.

Neutrophil molecular wiring revealed: transcriptional blueprint of short-lived cells

Research

Researchers publish the first blueprint of transcriptional factors that control neutrophil-driven inflammation in Nature Immunology.

Researchers show the role of cilia in cartilage health

New research shows that disrupting primary cilia in juvenile, adolescent and early adulthood in cartilage stops it maturing correctly, making it more prone to thinning and the potential for osteoarthritis (OA) in later life.

Exploring the link between joint injury and osteoarthritis

Research oacentre

A new study published in The Lancet Rheumatology shows potential ways to predict how likely someone is to develop osteoarthritis after a knee injury.

Doctor Ghada Alsaleh awarded a Versus Arthritis Career Development Fellowship

Awards

Postdoctoral Researcher Ghada Alsaleh has been awarded a research grant by Versus Arthritis which she will use to develop a new therapy for osteoarthritis.

New research identifies a role for CD200 in limiting atherosclerosis

A new study published in Circulation Research by researchers at the Kennedy Institute shows that CD200, an inhibitory immune checkpoint, reduces the development of atherosclerosis.

EPSRC funds research to avert an antibiotics apocalypse

Department Funding

Researchers at the Kennedy Institute join a collaboration to find new ‘drug-free’ ways of treating illnesses where current treatments have become ineffective due to antibiotic resistance.

Repurposed drug can induce remission of inflammatory arthritis

Research

Researchers at the Kennedy Institute demonstrate that the drug decitabine can boost regulatory T cell responses.

NDORMS researchers awarded ECTS prizes

Awards

Professor Anjali Kusumbe and Professor Cyrus Cooper have been presented with research awards by the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS).

Professor Katja Simon elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences

Professor Michael Dustin elected to the National Academy of Sciences

Awards

Recognised for his outstanding contributions to the field of immunology, Michael becomes the fourth Kennedy professor to be elected to the Academy.

Small mechanical forces in immune cells measured at unprecedented sensitivity

Research

Oxford researchers have used advanced microscopy techniques to measure previously unseen forces generated by cells during an immune response; a breakthrough for mechanobiology and future advances in health and disease.

NDORMS researchers awarded for Dupuytren research

Awards

Three NDORMS researchers have received awards from the International Dupuytren Society, a patient organisation that brings together Dupuytren Disease patient societies from across the world.

A new study maps the expression of innate immune receptors during the course of arthritis

The research, which was a collaboration with researchers from Oxford University and Queen Mary University of London and published in Journal of Autoimmunity, looked at changes in receptors known as toll-like receptors (TLRs) in arthritis at different stages of disease.

International Women's Day

It’s International Womens Day! This year’s theme is #Choosetochallenge. We’re celebrating some of the amazing women at NDORMS, and asking them what changes they’d like to see in medical sciences over the next 100 years.
