Honours project: Address the fundamental science behind the use of the steroid cholesterol as a source of energy by bacteria.
Honours project: Use approaches to generate enzyme catalyst based systems to develop greener and sustainable processes for the production of useful and high value chemicals.
Honours project: Study new enzymes and the associated ferredoxins from bacteria found in interesting environments (or genes from metagenomes) or which carry out novel reactions.
Honours project: Explore new leads for disruption of DNA triplex structures for treatment of related human diseases.
Honours project: Projects in this area involve the isolation and study new enzymes from bacteria of interest or taking existing enzymes and adapting them for chemical synthesis.
Honours project: Learn about the mechanism by which the major family of enzymes involved in drug metabolism catalyse oxidative transformations.
Honours project: Investigate the use of a high energy form of matter (plasma) to improve food safety.
Honours project: Insights into industrial catalysis and x-ray crystallography in metal-organic frameworks.
