The School of Chemistry is a vibrant centre of research in chemistry. We have an international reputation in a wide range of fields from catalysis to anticancer drug design and molecular photonics to nanotechnology.
Research in the School of Chemistry is organised into the following groups:
Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical BiologyOur strength in medicinal chemistry is evident through our track record of successful research. This has included the discovery of drugs that have progressed to clinic. We have core capacity in:
-Anti-cancer drug discovery
Nanoscience and MaterialsOur research develops new methods to synthesise, characterise and improve our understanding of materials. We focus on materials with useful nanoscale
