Professor Neil Cameron

Head of Department, Materials Science and Engineering
Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Room 208, 14 Alliance Lane, Clayton

Research Interests:

Neil's research interest lie at the interface between materials chemistry and biology. We use modern synthetic chemistry to create designed macromolecules and materials that interrogate, interrupt or mimic biological systems and processes. This in turn leads to opportunities to create novel systems with therapeutic or biotechnological applications.
