Medicinal Chemistry Group

Our research covers a range of medicinal chemistry and chemical biology areas focused on malaria, TB and filariasis. Our approach involves a broad range of synthesis approaches, modelling and biological testing.

Much of our work is carried with collaborators in the Department of Pharmacology as well as partnerships with Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (Professors WardBiagini and Taylor) and industrial partner groups including Astra ZenecaEisai (Boston, USA) and GSK (Tres Cantos, Madrid, Spain). More recently we have also initiated medicinal chemistry programmes in neuropathic pain and pancreatitis.

Funding and Collaboration

We are extremely fortunate, and grateful, that this research is funded by research councils, charities and industry. These funds enable extremely productive collaborations with academia and industry.
