Design and synthesis of novel iron chelators as a therapy for thalassaemia patients.


Project Description

Iron overload can be a huge issue for people coping with thalassaemia. This project will involve the synthesis of novel ion chelators that are effective and ultimately exhibit less side-effects of existing treatments.

Analytical methods will be developed in order measure levels of iron sequestration in water (model system) and biological fluid. Computational chemistry techniques will also be used to help design proof-of-concept compounds
