Welcome to the Stephen Hilton Research Group

Our research is focused on the discovery and application of: new reactions for natural compounds, flow chemistry and 3D-printing. We believe in the importance of developing creativity, critical thinking, and independence. Please explore the website to learn more about the ongoing projects in the laboratory and the scientists behind the chemistry.

Current Research Projects

Despite the enormous growth in 3D printing and its applications within chemical sciences, it still remains difficult to incorporate… Read more

Natural Compounds

In this area, we focus on the development of novel synthetic methodology to access natural products and related structures which will benefit our medicinal chemistry programmes.

Medicinal Chemistry

In this area, we are focussed on the development of novel therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, neurological disorders and HIV.

Synthetic Methodology

Therapeutic resistance to anti-viral drugs via mutation is a major challenge affecting both human and veterinary medicine…Read more
