Tailoring Unspecific Peroxygenases for the Green Oxygenation of Agrochemical Intermediates

The closing date for this project is 30 August 2021. However, if a suitable candidate is found before this date, then the position will be offered and no further applications will be considered. Read more

Metal-mediated chemical protein modification

Chemically modified proteins can be used to understand, treat, and diagnose disease. However, relatively few chemical reactions can be used to modify proteins, severely limiting the diversity and applications of new technologies. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Nutrient-Mediated Bacterial Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Microbial resistance to antibiotics has been 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

Self-funded BMS project: Resurrecting ancestral human sugars: a novel approach to cancer immunotherapy

Human cell surfaces are coated in a thick layer of sticky sugars [Glycocalyx]. Uniquely, cancer cells are covered with an excess of a sialic acid sugar (Neu5Ac), acting as ‘camouflage’ to avoid the immune system. Read more

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
