Accessing new bis(aryl) molecular scaffolds for drug discovery

University of Strathclyde

Past award

Student: Sophie McPake : University of Strathclyde

Year Award Started: 2018

Aiming to pave the future for greater productivity and sustainability in drug discovery, allowing the design of safer and more effective drugs, this project will provide medicinal and synthetic chemists with a new set of tools to modify essential organic building blocks. Research will focus on bis(aryl) fragments which are key scaffolds for therapeutic agents in neurodegenerative diseases as well as in other bioactive molecules with antibacterial activity.
