Andrew Cammidge gained a PhD in 1990 investigating some novel phthalocyanine liquid crystals and then spent just over a year at the University of Toledo, USA, working with Alan Morgan on the synthesis of novel organic chromophores for the photodynamic treatment of cancer. In 1991 he returned to the UK to a postdoctoral position at the University of Leeds, spending three years working with Neville Boden and Richard Bushby working on the development of novel syntheses and applications of discotic liquid crystals, before returning to UEA in 1995. He has been a Professor in Chemistry since 2011.

Currently he leads a research team working on synthesis and investigation of complex organic materials, teaches organic chemistry at all levels. He is Deputy Head of School, Director of Finance, Director of Admissions and Course Director for the School’s MSc in Advanced Organic Chemistry. Outside of UEA, he chairs the RSC research fund working group.
