Lanthanide elements have distinctive and long-lived light emission. Holding multiple lanthanides close together provides a route to creating new biological imaging molecules.
We have new funded PhD opportunities available in the group. These are through two partnerships, with A*STAR in Singapore and IIT Kharagpur in India. These projects are both split-site, and are open to home and exceptional overseas students. They are open now for a September 2023 start. Please check
A welcome to Matthew Thornton, a new PhD student on a BBSRC-DTP project led by Dr. Louise Natrajan (Chemistry) and co-supervised by Dr Sam Hay (MIB) and Patrick. Matthew’s project on “Photon Upconversion Probes with Lanthanide Containing Biomolecules” includes rotations working in Chemistry, the Photon Science Institute and the
