Chemistry Gibson Group


The GibsonGroup are interested in how we can use biomaterials and bio-engineering approaches to address global heathcare challenges. We have current research programs in;

Cell and protein (biologic) cryopreservation, learning from how extremeophiles survive

Glyco-biology/nanotechnology, to mimic the complexities of the cell glycalyx to develop

New non-traditional antimicrobials

New diagnostic tools
