About the Project

Antimicrobial resistance is a rapidly emerging global emergency. Many pathogens are becoming untreatable with standard antibiotics. We have recently identified metal complex-based “theranostics” that can image and treat highly resistant pathogens – see this CBS report on our work:

https://www.cbsnews.com/video/u-k-scientists-compound-could-find-and-kill-superbugs-bacteria/

These leads will be starting points to develop new targeted diagnostics and therapeutics for multidrug resistant bacterial pathogens. This multidisciplinary project will involve - and provide training in - organic and inorganic synthesis, state-of-the-art microscopy, and a range of microbiology skills.

All formal applications must be made via the online application portal:
