A postdoctoral research fellowship is available in our group, to work on synthetic carbohydrate receptors with potential medical applications. For more information and application, please go to the university website.
Tony will receive € 2.5 million funding for his project After GluHUT – A New Era for Synthetic Carbohydrate Receptors (POSTGLUHUT) which aims to transform the lives of diabetics.
Molecules which bind carbohydrates can have a range of medical uses. An important example is the application of glucose-binding molecules in glucose monitors for diabetics, and potentially in glucose-sensitive insulin which becomes more active as glucose levels increase. Our group recently developed a glucose-binding molecule called “GluHUT” (Glucose-binding Hexaurea Temple) which turns out to be remarkably effective. This ERC-funded project, “POSTGLUHUT”, aims to exploit GluHUT in a number of new ways, and also to develop the underlying science so that other carbohydrates can be targeted.
Congratulations Tony! More details can be found here: Bristol Chemistry

We are pleased to congratulate Claire on passing her viva lately. Clarie was a helpful senior student in the group and has started her career in a patent company in Southampton. We wish her having a good future and will miss her when having a Poutine in Colston😜.
Congratulations to Sergio for passing his PhD viva recently. Sergio had been a knowledgeable student in the group, his intelligence and humour will be missed by all of us. He is currently working as a post-doc in Spain, we wish him has a good future.
