Professor Peter Scott FRSC CChem
Professor of Chemistry
Pete researches in two areas: the discovery of self-assembling molecules as antimicrobials and cancer medicines, and interfacially-active polyolefin materials for recycling and other applications. He is Director of the Institute of Advanced Study, holds a Royal Society Industry Fellowship, leads Warwick's Business Partnerships Grand Challenge, and is Chair of Warwick's Art Collection committee. He is also founder and director of the Warwick spin-out Interface Polymers Ltd.
