Natural Product Synthesis

Project Summary. This PhD studentship will be focused on the biomimetic total synthesis of complex natural products. The chemical feasibility of proposed biosynthetic pathways towards biologically active diterpene structures will be investigated. Read more

The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership

 The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme is a 4-year DPhil*/PhD programme that aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research. Read more

Supramolecular sensors for neurotransmitters

Neurological diseases are a leading cause of disability worldwide. Neurotransmitters (e.g. dopamine) are key molecules in neuronal communication, making their detection and quantification vital for medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Read more

Using novel ferronucleosides to study and regulate DNA replication in cells

Background. Replication of nucleic acid polymers like DNA is an essential process for all known forms of life. Furthermore, dysregulation and errors in DNA-replication are strongly linked with human diseases including cancer, as well as the process of cellular ageing. Read more

Exploring bacterial enzymes as new targets for treating infectious disease

The Ferrier Institute has established a world-class reputation in nature-inspired synthetic carbohydrate chemistry and analysis and has extended its expertise into the areas of synthetic and chemical biology, chemical immunology, and natural product isolation. Read more

Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.

Perylene diimides as smart optical reporters for environmental sensing and bioimaging

This is a PhD project in the fields of synthetic supramolecular chemistry and photophysics. The research will be conducted at both the University of Birmingham (in the UK) and Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (in Berlin, Germany), under the joint supervision of Dr Timothy Barendt and Dr. Read more

A high-throughput library approach for minimizing peptide off-targets

Supervisors. Louise Walport. Ben Schumann. Martin Münzel (Novo Nordisk). Recent breakthroughs in oral peptide delivery have vastly extended the chemical space which is available to drug protein/protein interactions and other challenging targets. Read more

Microbial synthesis of hydroquinone from waste feedstocks

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Hydroquinone (HQ) is an essential raw material for the high value thermoplastic polymer PEEK, produced by Victrex on >7000 tonnes pa scale and consuming 1500 tones HQ each year, with figures forecast to double by 2030. Read more
