Melville Laboratory

The Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis provides the leading role in innovative polymer synthesis in Cambridge University. The Melville Laboratories are based within the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry at the Univeristy of Cambridge, with state-of-the-art facilities which opened in November 2002. The Melville is now home to two research groups, with over 45 post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers. 

The Melville Laboratory Group Leaders teach introductory and advanced polymer chemistry courses in the Department of Chemistry. These include courses for Part II, Part III, MPhil and PhD Students. Within the research facilities students work on projects for Part III, MPhil and PhD. Broader training for all members of the group is provided in the weekly seminars during term time. All PhD students present their work annually in a public lecture.
