Medicinal Chemistry Group


The medicinal chemistry group occupies the 4th floor of the Robert Robinson Laboratories in the Department of Chemistry. We have a fully equipped laboratory for synthetic medicinal chemistry and the necessary hardware and software for molecular modelling, some of which employs the University of Liverpool’s high performance computing clusters.

Through our collaborators we have access to biological screening for malaria (Professor Steven Ward), tuberculosis (Professor Giancarlo Biagini), filiriasis (Professor Mark Taylor), vector biology (Dr Mark Paine), pancreatitis (Professor Robert Sutton), Cryptococcus neoformans (Professor William Hope). Through our collaborations with Professor Lu-Yun Lian we have access to a range of biophysical techniques including high field NMR spectrometers, X-ray crystallography, isothermal calorimetry and surface plasmon resonance.‌
