Novel Cyclic Peptides for Biomedical Imaging and Therapeutic Targeting
Prof M Zanda
Applications accepted all year round
Cyclic Peptides have a wide range of applications as drugs and diagnostics, and have often higher receptor affinity, metabolic stability and better pharmacokinetic properties compared to their linear counterparts, but their synthesis still presents significant challenges.
Nucleation of Atmospheric Aerosols
Prof A M Ellis, Dr S Ball
25 April 2019
Aerosol particles are important constituents of the Earth’s atmosphere. They play a vital role in the lower atmosphere by affecting the Earth’s radiation balance through the scattering of solar radiation.
