Lanthanide elements have distinctive and long-lived light emission. Holding multiple lanthanides close together provides a route to creating new biological imaging molecules.
Group PhD student Matthew Thornton has presented work at the Terra Rarae conference in Leipzig, Germany. His presentation reports on the synthesis and characterization of a novel multi-pocket molecule for lanthanide photophysics.
Matt Thornton, a BBSRC funded PhD affiliated with the group won a Poster Prize at the Molecular Photophysics meeting in Newcastle. Congratulations to Matt!
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
