We are happy to announce that our joint bid for a 3-year PhD studentship was funded by the Durham University Global Challenges Research Fund Centre for Doctoral Training. The student will be based in collaborator Dr James Walton’s laboratory at the Department of Chemistry.

In the project, the student will synthesise a series of copper-binding small molecule ligands that act as antimicrobial resistance breakers. The student will also spend some time in the Djoko lab to perform microbiological testing of promising compounds.
