  Exploring the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compounds
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. natural products; organic synthesis; medicinal chemistry; drug discovery. Motivated international and New Zealand-based candidates are invited to apply for a University of Canterbury Doctoral Scholarship to investigate the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compound collections.
  Design and Synthesis of Bifunctional 3-D Building Blocks for Use in Medicinal Chemistry
  Prof P O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in collaboration with Professor Mike Waring (Newcastle University). Background. Fragment-based methods are established for the identification of lead compounds in drug discovery.1 Fragments are small molecules (molecular weight ~150-300) which bind weakly to proteins.
