Dr Cally Haynes profile picture
  • Lecturer in Organic Chemistry and Chemical Biology
  • Dept of Chemistry
  • Faculty of Maths & Physical Sciences

Cally completed her PhD in chemistry at the University of Southampton under the guidance of Prof. Phil Gale in 2011, studying the design of small molecule anion carriers. She was awarded a Doctoral Prize fellowship in Southampton and continued working here as a PDRA until 2013. From 2013 - 2015 she worked as a Publishing Editor at the Royal Society of Chemistry, helping to produce journals including ChemComm, Chemical Science and ChemSocRev. In 2015 she took up a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. Jonathan Nitschke at the University of Cambridge, studying the applications of metal-organic cages as ion channels, stimuli-responsive phase separation agents, components of supramolecular gels, DNA binders and porous liquids. She joined UCL as a lecturer in June 2019.

Cally is also a co-founder and vice chair (communications) for the Women In Supramolecular Chemistry (WISC) network, an international network aiming  to support the retention and career progression of women of all career stages within the supramolecular chemistry community.

Research Summary

Our group is interested in studying of the ways in which small molecules interact with each other and their surroundings. By gaining an understanding of molecular association events, we can learn to design and control receptor - substrate binding and self-assembly events, and even control fundamental chemical properties such as solubility which are critically important in numerous fields of study.

Work in the Haynes group is particularly focussed on the application of supramolecular chemistry to biological and medicinal chemistry problems, such as controlling pharmacokinetic parameters via tuning non-covalent interactions and the design of novel amphiphiles to yield responsive self-assembled nanostructures for the controlled uptake, transport and release of guests.

Teaching Summary

I teach the organic chemistry component of the introductory first year lecture course "Chemical foundations". I teach two research focussed "Topics in Modern Chemistry" covering different aspects of biological chemistry for fourth year MSci and MRes/MSc students, plus Carbohydrate Chemistry for year 2 Biological Sciences students. I tutor core, second year organic chemistry and supervise third year students in writing literature dissertations.
