Dr Adam C. Sedgwick
Lecturer in Chemistry
Adam is a Lecturer for the Department of Chemistry. He received his MChem (2014) and his Ph.D. (2018) from the University of Bath (supervisors - Professor Tony D. James and Professor Steven D. Bull). Following this, Adam moved to the USA to work within the group of Professor Jonathan L. Sessler (2018–2021) at The University of Texas at Austin. Adam obtained a Glasstone Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford and a Junior Research Fellowship at Jesus College, Oxford (2021-2023). Adam’s research experience includes synthetic method development and the synthesis of multifunctional molecules, ranging from imaging agents, chemical sensors, and therapeutics.
Adam’s research interests are towards advancing new concepts in molecular imaging, and drug discovery, through small molecule synthesis. By drawing from components of organic, inorganic, and chemical biology, unique chemical tools are currently being developed that enable the study of these molecules within biological systems.
