Millie Parton


I completed my undergraduate MChem degree in Chemistry at Sheffield Hallam University and undertook a master's research project on; How physiochemical alterations to antimicrobial peptides affect peptide-membrane interactions using both NMR and biological assays.

    Current Research

    My current research is focused on the development of novel metal-based antimicrobial agents for the treatment of infectious diseases. I am supervised by Peter Sadler Link opens in a new windoandLink opens in a new windowand, Chris Dowson and funded by Goldenkeys and the University of Warwick. I am also interested in designing antimicrobial peptides and exploring their mechanisms of action.
