This is the official institutional research repository for the University of St Andrews. The repository contains electronic theses and research publications including articles, conference proceedings, working papers and some research monographs. It also contains material and publications affiliated to the University and arising from specific projects. Full text content is provided for all research publications in the repository, and wherever possible (following embargoes) for electronic theses.

The University requires submission of an electronic version of theses. For help with electronic thesis deposit see Library webpages on how to submit your electronic copy or contact

The full text of research papers can be submitted to the repository via Pure, the University's research information system. For help see our guide: How to deposit in Pure or contact the Open Access team at

  • OLED microdisplays control cell behavior through optogenetics 

    Gather, Malte C. (2016-05-25) - Journal article
    OLED microdisplays are introduced as a microscopic illumination platform for cell biology. The μm-scale dimensions of each pixel and the μm-thin encapsulation enable controlled light exposure of individual live cells. This ...
  • Tacrine-allyl/propargylcysteine-benzothiazole trihybrids as potential anti-Alzheimer's drug candidates 

    Hiremathad, Asha; Chand, Karam; Esteves, A. Raquel; Cardoso, Sandra M; Ramsay, Rona R.; Chaves, Sílvia; Keri, Rangappa S.; Santos, M. Amélia (2016) - Journal article
    On continuing our research on new drug candidates for Alzheimer's disease (AD), we have designed, synthesized and evaluated a series of multifunctional trihybrid agents. The design strategy was based on the incorporation ...
  • Enhanced nasopharyngeal infection and shedding associated with an epidemic lineage of emm3 group A Streptococcus 

    Afshar, Baharak; Turner, Claire E.; Lamagni, Theresa; Smith, Ken; Al-Shahib, Ali; Underwood, Anthony; Holden, Matthew T. G.; Efstratiou, Androulla; Sriskandan, Shiranee (2017-05-01) - Journal article
    Background :  A group A Streptococcus (GAS) lineage of genotype emm3, sequence type 15 (ST15) was associated with a six month upsurge in invasive GAS disease in the UK. The epidemic lineage (Lineage C) had lost two typical ...
  • Three-dimensional photonic confinement in imprinted liquid crystalline pillar microcavities 

    Dusel, Marco; Betzold, Simon; Brodbeck, Sebastian; Herbst, Stefanie; Würthner, Frank; Friedrich, Daniel; Hecht, Bert; Höfling, Sven; Dietrich, Christof P. (2017-05-19) - Journal article
    We demonstrate the feasibility of a thermal imprint technology capable of structuring organic thin films with liquid crystalline properties forming feature sizes on a several micrometer scale. The imprint technique can ...
