8/07/22 Great to be asked to talk at RSC Nucleic Acids Forum


10/05/22 Paper out in Angewandte Chemie Int Ed


We assumed the antiproliferative effects of "RuRuPhen" would be DNA-based as the molecule's such a nice DNA imaging agent... t'was actin all along. 


28/03/22 Congratulations to Paul Tiley, who has finished his MSc by Research degree!


28/01/22 Welcome to three new project students, Dom Conway, Steff James and Jake Stubbs start their research.

18/11/20 Paper out! Final version of our ChemMedChem review now published:

This is part of a "Metals in medicine" ChemMedChem/EJIC special collection with guest editors Prof. Angela Casini and Prof. Edith (Phoebe) Glazer and also is a VIP paper!

10/08/20 Paper out! Ever wondered what happens when you label a ruthenium polypyridyl complex with a radiometal? Find out in Chemical Science!divAbstract

23/05/20 Video on our stuff on SwanseaChem's twitter page courtesy of some amazing editing from Dr Francisco Martin-Martinez!

And if it looks like I've been in the same room for weeks, well.... I have.

03/01/20 Paper out! Nice start to the new year: Ninie (Nur Aininie Yusoh) has her paper "Metallointercalator [Ru(dppz)2(PIP)]2+ Renders BRCA Wild-Type Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Cells Hypersensitive to PARP Inhibition" published in ACS Chemical Biology. -
