Our research spans the traditional areas of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry as well as more interdisciplinary activities, including nanoscience, bioinorganic and medicinal chemistry.

Key to our research activities are our excellent facilities including a fully equipped NMR suite, a Mass Spectometry Centre, small molecule and protein X-ray crystallography, nano-labs with scanning tunnelling, electron and atomic force microscopy facilities and a laser-lab supporting ultra-sensitive spectroscopy and single molecule optical microscopy.

Our work is funded by grants from the EPSRC, the European Research Council, the EU Marie Curie Scheme, the Leverhulme Trust, the Royal Society, Wellcome, Wordwide Cancer Research, the Niemann Pick Research Foundation, Great Ormond Street and industry partners.
