Design and synthesis of three dimensional fragments

University of Dundee

Past award

Student: Tommi Muili : University of St Andrews

Year Award Started: 2018

This project is to design and make novel, never made before, small molecules as prototype drugs. These compounds will be used by the DDU’s projects to identify if they give a start point for a drug discovery project (in areas including malaria, cancer) and then seek to optimise then towards a drug. The project will train the student in a number of aspects of chemistry, both theoretical and practical, and drug discovery. The person will work in a laboratory with very experienced scientist, many who have worked in the pharmaceutical industry increasing their ability to learn.
