Congratulations to Peter and Prakash whose work showing the use of alkynyl thioethers with isoxazole-type nitrenoids has been published in ACS Catalysis. This work is in collaboration with Eli Lilly and Dr Jeff Richardson.
Congratulations to Pam, whose work on Gold-catalysed cycloisomerisation of ynamides to access 2,2-disubstituted tetrahydrothiophene motifs has just been accepted into Synlett
We are looking to appoint a new member of the artificial metalloenzymes team, focusing more on the structural peptide and bioinorganic aspects, working with Dr Anna Peacock’s group here in Birmingham. Details are in the advert – do get in touch with any questions.
A belated welcome to Richard who joined the artificial metalloenzymes team in January. We’re delighted to have him on board, bringing his expertise in organometallic chemistry and catalysis through carbohydrate chemistry and organic cages. See here for more details.
many congratulations to Ana who passed her viva today, examined by Professors Steven Cobb and John Fossey. Best wishes for your next position at Sygnature
Congratulations to Dr Joshua Priest, whose studies into diastereoselective sulfur ylide rearrangements from ynamides has been accepted for publication in Tetrahedron.
This will go into the issue “Strategies for Efficient Organic Synthesis Dedicated to the Achievements of Professor Jonathan Williams”
Congratulations to Mat on passing his PhD viva! Mat is starting a post-doctoral position at ICIQ Tarrogana with Professor Ruben Martin.
Tom Squire is starting his PhD on a joint project with us and the Peacock group in Birmingham. Tom is joining our artificial metalloenzyme team and is funded through the BBSRC funded MIBTP programme.
