New molecules to solve the problems of tomorrow.
Our research focuses on the application of fundamental chemical science to understand and provide solutions to the problems of tomorrow. We develop new chemical insights into their underlying processes, and use this to design new molecules and materials to provide solutions across our key research areas.
Chemistry at Newcastle provides a vigorous and dynamic range of research programmes which based physical, inorganic, organic, medicinal and theoretical chemistry.
We undertake research in the following areas:
- Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology
- Nanoscience and Materials
- Photonic Materials
- Structure and Dynamics
- Synthesis, Reactivity and Catalysis
Our work is generously supported by a range of funding agencies (eg Cancer Research UK, EPSRC, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and ERC) and includes strong collaborations with industry. We benefit from local, national and international collaborations that play a key role in the multidisciplinary research activities.
