Welcome to the Hulme group!

The Hulme research group is based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh. Our research integrates synthetic methodology development with chemical biology to provide molecular level insight to challenges in biology and medicine and is funded by the UK research councils including EPSRC, BBSRC and MRC; the EC, Medical Research Scotland, Cancer Research UK and the UK Pharmaceutical Industry.

Current studentship opportunities:

  • WTiCM (deadline 11th December 2019): A degron-nanobody fusion platform to decode kinase–regulated cellular pathways (Hulme, Walkinshaw)
  • Darwin Trust (deadline 11th December 2019): Designing new macrocyclic drugs to target the microtubule cytoskeleton in cancer and beyond (Welburn, Hulme)
  • EASTBIO (deadline 5th January 2020): Untangling the role of microglia in colonising brain tumours through targeted drug delivery (Hulme, Sieger, Brunton)
  • EASTBIO (deadline 5th January 2020): Effect of molecular crowding on motors and microtubules (Welburn, Hulme)
  • EPSRC/AZ (ongoing): Development of bioorthogonal stimulated Raman scattering microscopy for evaluation of drug biodistribution (Hulme, Brunton)

  • The Hulme research group also has one of the longest-running academic programmes in historical textile dye analysis in the UK; with former PhD students going on to work at National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh, the National Gallery in London, and the Swiss Institute of Art in Zurich.
