Corrosion is an omnipresent concern in geothermal power plants and oilfield infrastructure, costing more than £1.1 billion per annum.
  Decarboxylative fluorination and trifluoromethylation of benzoic acids
  Prof I Larrosa, Prof D Procter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2018, >40% of FDA approved small molecule drugs contained fluorinated aromatics. This is explained through a wide range of effects that fluorine can impart on drug molecules, such as modulating lipophilicity, basicity and bioavailability, among others.
  Ruthenium-catalysed C-H late stage functionalisation of biologically active compounds
  Prof I Larrosa, Dr J Bures
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will involve work in the catalytic C–H activation area.
  Design, Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of novel inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway with potential application as immune oncology agents
  Dr R Whitehead, Dr K Finegan, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small molecule inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway often possess interesting biological properties with many displaying potent anti-proliferative activity towards cancer cell lines.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
