Congratulations to Emma on being awarded 1st prize for her oral presentation for the final year Wellcome Trust talks at the Faculty of Biological Sciences Postgraduate Symposium in Leeds, May 2019. Her talk, “Identification of small molecule modulators of amyloid formation through site-directed screening”, described the identification of small molecule...
Research led by the School of Chemistry and Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology published in a major chemistry journal has been identified as a major step forward in bio-mimetic chemistry. Read the full news story here.
Congratulations to Emma on being awarded 1st prize for her oral presentation at the Chemical Biology and Bio-organic Group Postgraduate Symposium in Southampton, April 2019. Her talk described the identification of small molecule modulators of amyloid formation which have enabled her to start characterising protein-protein interaction interfaces and oligomers involved...
Congratulations to Heather on being awarded a Chemical Science Outstanding Oral Presentation prize at the RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Meeting, Lancaster, December 2018. Her talk outlined a summary of her project investigating sequential and switchable self-sorting of hydrogen bonding motifs.
Congratulations to Heather Coubrough, who becomes the 19th member of the Wilson group to defend a PhD thesis.
Congratulations to Sam Bunce, following his viva with Jody Mason and Stuart Warriner, he becomes the 18th member of the Wilson group to defend a PhD thesis.
Congratulations to Zsofia on winning a poster prize at the Eighth PPSG Early Stage Researcher Meeting, July 2018. Her poster, Ligand-Directed Dynamic Combinatorial Chemistry for Inhibition of Protein-Protein Interactions, outlined the development of dynamic covalent chemistry approach using peptide-small molecule hybrid structures to target b-sheet mediated protein-protein interactions.
Congratulations to Hester on defending her thesis co-supervised by Andy on our collaborative project with Robin Bon.
Congratulations to Phil on defending his thesis co-supervised by Andy on our collaborative project with Thomas Edwards.
