Link between ATP supply and consumption in the maintenance of the shape of the red blood cell in normal and disease states

The link between the main energy supply (ATP from glycolysis) and its consumption by the cytoskeleton will be studied by using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, compute more...

Hydro-mechanical effects associated with geo-sequestration of CO2 in coal

The aim of this project is to perform tests to explore the ease with which CO2 flows through coal, and how this may change as adsorbtion occurs, and to investigate the resulting cha more...
