Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry

About Me

Gavin Miller was born in Newport, Wales and read Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry at UMIST where he was awarded an MChem. Continuing his studies at the University of Manchester, Gavin undertook a PhD in carbohydrate chemistry (investigating multivalency).

He then undertook PDRA positions at Brown University (polyketides) and St Andrews University (inositol mimetics). Gavin then worked in industry, firstly at Ferring Pharmaceuticals, on the design of new treatments for primary dysmenorrhea and secondly at Peakdale Molecular on the design of an anti-nicotine vaccine.

Gavin returned to academia and the University of Manchester in 2009, firstly as a PDRA in the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology developing chemical synthesis approaches to heparan sulfate oligosaccharides and secondly as a fixed-term lecturer, in 2013, within the School of Chemistry. He took up his current lectureship in chemistry at Keele in 2015.
