PhD in Chemistry: Chemical synthesis and biological evaluation of conotoxin peptides

Peptides derived from natural sources are useful lead compounds to develop therapeutics. The structural diversity of naturally occurring peptides covers a large section of chemical space that sits between more traditional small molecules (. Read more

PhD in Chemistry – Metal-Templated Self-Assembly of Peptide-Based Knots and Catenanes

Bright, highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD position in the School of Chemistry, available to commence on 1st October 2021 as part of a collaboration between the Forgan and Thomson research groups at the University of Glasgow. Read more

PhD in Chemistry - Functional Protein Ligation Junctions

We have recently developed novel beta turn mimics. See ‘Beta Turn Mimics by Chemical Ligation, Organic Letters, 2020, 22, 11, 4424–4428. These are installed through a chemical ligation procedure, allowing us to join together two protein fragments at the same time as installing the turn mimic.

Chemical probes for the study of carbohydrate-active enzymes

Background. Carbohydrates play many roles in cells from all kingdoms of life. In addition to their well-known role as an energy source, they also have important functions in, for example, communication between cells, cell-pathogen interactions, intracellular signalling, and maintaining a stable cellular environment.

Amphiphile-induced frustration in liquid crystals

Amphiphilic compounds self-organise so that the incompatible parts of the molecule are separated from one another (e.g. micelles); the exact same principle holds for liquid crystals (LCs). Read more

Nutrient-Mediated Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Background. Microbial resistance to antibiotics is a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more

Realising the Potential of Earth-abundant Metal Catalysis.

Background. Transition metal catalysts play a key role in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and modern materials. Currently, this area is dominated by the use of expensive and rare platinum group metals such as ruthenium, rhodium and palladium. Read more

The Development of Artificial Metalloenzymes

Background. As natural biocatalysts, enzymes have evolved over billions or years to be highly efficient and selective. Their application in both bioconversions and chemical syntheses is attractive because of their sustainability and environmental compatibility. Read more
