Top-level library design from University of York

19 October 2017

Dr Will Unsworth, a talented young group leader at the Department of Chemistry, University of York, has been awarded the highest monetary incentive for the library he designed based on cyclic peptide mimetics.

​Clearly, the money was not Dr Unsworth’s main incentive. ‘The European Lead Factory represents a fantastic opportunity to see the molecules prepared in our synthetic projects make a genuine impact in medicinal chemistry.’ He continued: ‘To know that our products may one day contribute to addressing some of society's major health problems like cancer or antimicrobial resistance, is extremely satisfying and exciting!’
