High levels of oxidative stress are associated with a number of diseases (cancer, Alzheimer's disease, inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular disease) including infectious diseases caused by pathogenic organisms (bacteria, fungi and their associated biofilms).
This project aims to design and prepare new small molecules to regulate and track oxidative stress in various disease states.
You will work in a team of motivated PhD students to carry out:
- organic synthesis
- structural characterisation
- molecular docking.
New molecules as potential treatments for diseases involving oxidative stress.
Skills and experience
You will need strong organic chemistry knowledge.
You may be able to apply for a research scholarship in our annual scholarship round.
