About the Seminar: Imaging techniques are a vital part of clinical diagnostics and biomedical research. Optical molecular imaging makes use of relatively harmless, low-energy light, and technically straightforward instrumentation. Bioluminescence imaging systems, particularly use of firefly luciferin, are attractive because they have inherently high signal contrast due to the lack of background emission. However, current […]

About the Seminar: Non-covalent interactions play a crucial in all manner of chemical and biological processes. In recent times, the incorporation of non-covalent interactions into the design of small molecule catalysts has revolutionised the field of enantioselective catalysis. Our research is centred around applying catalyst designs incorporating non-covalent interactions to tackle selectivity challenges in synthetic […]

Literature Seminar: Photon upconversion is a process that converts low energy light into higher energy light. This process has the potential to dramatically improve the interaction of light and biological tissue through the local generation of visible light, which can allow for deep tissue bioimaging. However, frequently utilized photon upconversion systems historically incorporate toxic materials, […]
