Dr Mark McLaughlin

Visiting Researcher

Research Overview

The McLaughlin group is interested in pioneering the use of alkaline earth metals as sustainable catalysts for a wide range of organic transformations. We are also working in the area of transition metal catalysis to produce high value organo-metalloids, as well as employing super acids to activiate inherently unreactive molecules.

We are also engaged in structure based design and synthesis of small molecules, and using these to validate new therapeutic targets in oncology, neurodegeneration and rare diseases.
