Research summaryMedicinal chemistry; design and synthesis of biologically active molecules

Research

My primary research interests are the design and synthesis of biologically active molecules for the treatment of chronic and infectious disease. I have experience in a range of disciplines including organic and medicinal chemistry, molecular biology and chemical biology.

Current research is focused on new technologies for targeted drug delivery and medicinal chemistry.
