    2. Research Collaborations

    I collaborate with colleagues from a wide-range of backgrounds and areas ranging from Microbiology, through Chemistry, to Physics. In particular, I continue to work closely with Tim Rudd (formerly UoL, Diamond Synchrotron and now the National Institute of Biological Standards and Controls (NIBSC) and Marco Guerrini (Ronzoni Institute, Milan) on aspects of the structure, activity and safety of the pharmaceutical agent, heparin, and its derivatives. I have also developed close links with Helena Nader, Marcelo Lima and colleagues at UNIFESP (Brazil).

    3. My group has hosted a number of PhD students and post-docs, several of whom have gone on to pursue independent academic or industrial careers. Topics of study have been varied, covering structural investigations employing spectroscopic techniques to the application of carbohydrates as agents of disrupting disease processes in Malaria.
