  Macromolecules for drug delivery
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have worked with a number of water soluble polymer systems that are capable of encapsulating and solubilising various hydrophobic drug moieties.
  Water pollution control using polymer-inorganic complexes
  Dr F Clegg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Water pollution arises via several different sources, including municipal, industrial (in particular petroleum) and agricultural activities.
  Synthesis of specific macromolecular ligands for protein binding, recognition and purification.
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins bind and recognise each other using large surface areas. Sensing and recognizing specific proteins is therefore important for a number of applications, including medicine, biology and chemistry.
  Synthesise of new macromolecules for application in photodynamic therapy.
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an effective and licensed treatment for a number of conditions, including various cancers and certain skin and eye conditions.
  Artificial blood
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by Nature, we have developed a number of macromolecules that can bind a release oxygen. These have included polyfluorinated micelles, polyion complexes and porphyrin cored polymers.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.
  Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
  Metal-organic nanosheets (MONs): Programmable 2D materials for use as sensors, catalysts, membranes and devices
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene hold enormous potential for use in advanced electronics, energy, separation and composite materials applications.
