Glucose Responsive Insulin Therapy: Synthesis of novel glucose-selective chemical receptors for drug delivery

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The vacancy is for a single student to develop and synthesise novel glucose-selective chemical receptors based on research emerging from the team (1). These receptors will be incorporated into smart insulin delivery materials. The project will involve the design and synthesis of glucose-binding molecules. Applicants interested in coupling synthetic organic chemistry skills and knowledge of chemoreceptors for drug delivery are encouraged to apply. The project has already attracted press attention (2,3) and this vacancy is for a student to explicitly develop synthetic chemistry approaches towards realising the overarching ambitions of the collaborative team.
