About The Wilson Group

The Wilson Group is based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Leeds. Its members are also part of the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology.

We are interested in the application of synthetic molecules to problems in Chemical Biology and Materials Science.

The group is currently supported primarily by The University of Leeds, EPSRC, BBSRC, and The Leverhulme Trust.

Our group is participating in several large-scale, multi-investigator programmes including SPIDR, a major BBSRC investment,  and led on the EPSRC PoPPI Programme.
