Within university chemistry departments, organic chemists are formulating reaction pathways which will yield a desired chemical product. In most cases, it is often found that the targeted product exerts some beneficial biological effect towards cellular activity. In my organic chemistry lectureship within the University of Salford, I too am involved in the synthesis of potential biologically active compounds; namely a range of anti-cancer compounds and anti-bacterial agents. Using my professional knowledge, I have developed an outreach project known as BORIS designed to show GCSE and A-level students what proteins look like, their importance and role within the body and how drugs interact with them.
