My research interests are focused on the discovery, design and development of new drugs. Using a plethora of medicinal chemistry techniques, including virtual screening, organic chemistry, peptide synthesis, enzyme and cell assays, we are able to target different diseases ranging from balding to asthma. These multidisciplinary projects give students the opportunity to be exposed to different research skills and techniques used to develop pharmaceutical drug candidates.

Traineeships, honours and PhD projects include

  • Drug discovery and development for the treatment of hair loss
  • Drug optimisation for the treatment of asthma and allergic diseases
  • Development of nitroxide spin label probes as ‘rulers’ for structural biology
