Postgraduate Chemistry students showcased the first three years of their research at a poster exhibition before lecturers and invited guests from industry. Prizes were awarded for the best work and everyone who took part gained valuable experience in presenting their work to others.


Prize winner Thomas Gee, who is working towards a PhD in computational chemistry says “Southampton is a really good place for Chemistry, high in the UK rankings and the research is excellent. Staff are friendly and willing to collaborate,” he says.

Fellow prize winner Eilidh Leach is trying to find a new treatment for high cholestrol as an alternative to statins, and is currently screening potential therapeutic materials. “The Graduate School at Southampton is quite large, there’s a really nice mix of people, everyone’s friendly and the laboratories are well equipped, all in all it’s a great place to study,” she says.

The winners were Matthew Burton, Will Richardson, Edward Jager, Marija Miljak, Gemma Packer and Katherine Lennard

PhDs are available across all Chemistry’s research areas – Computational Systems, Electrochemistry, Chemical Biology, Diagnostics and Therapeutics, Magnetic Resonance, Organic Chemistry, Characterisation and Analytics and Functional Inorganic, Materials and Supramolecular Chemistry. Postgraduate research at Southampton is frequently multidisciplinary in nature and students may be jointly supervised by staff from other academic areas.
