About Professor Katrina (Kate) Jolliffe

Design and synthesis of functional molecules.

Professor Katrina (Kate) Jolliffe’s research interests encompass elements of synthetic organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and medicinal chemistry. All of these areas rely on being able to make molecules of a particular design for a certain function. Current interests include developing new methods for the cyclisation of biologically active cyclic peptides; the design, synthesis and characterisation of novel receptors for biologically important molecules such as pyrophosphate, and the design and development of new antifungal agents.

Professor Jolliffe is a researcher in the School of Chemistry. For more information about Professor Jolliffe, please refer to her Academic Profile Online.
