Miller Group


Welcome to the Miller research group at Keele University

We are a group of organic chemists focused on carbohydrate synthesis. We are interested in making tools for glycobiology, new glycomaterials and carbohydrates in medicinal chemistry. Please browse the site using the links above and follow us on Twitter @millerlabkeele
