Philip Gale received his BA (Hons) in 1992 and DPhil in 1995 from the University of Oxford. He then moved to the University of Texas at Austin where he spent two years as a Fulbright Scholar and returned to Oxford when he was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship. In 1999 he moved to the University of Southampton and is currently the Head of Chemistry.
Phil's research interests focus on the supramolecular chemistry of anionic species and in particular the molecular recognition, sensing and lipid bilayer transport of anionic species. Transmembrane anion transporters have potential applications in the development of future treatments for cystic fibrosis and cancer. Phil has won a number of research prizes including the Bob Hay Lectureship from the RSC UK Macrocycles and Supramolecular Chemistry Group (2004) and the Corday-Morgan medal and prize from the Royal Society of Chemistry (2005).
Phil serves as the associate editor for Supramolecular, Macrocyclic and Coordination Chemistry of the RSC's flagship reviews journal Chemical Society Reviews. He is also the co-editor of the journal Supramolecular Chemistry, and a member of various international editorial advisory boards. In 2012 he was elected chair of the RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Group.
