Research Interests

  • Anti-cancer drug design
  • Novel treatments for psoriasis
  • Natural products research 

Major interests concern the design and synthesis of novel anti-cancer agents. This involves synthetic organic chemistry, molecular modelling, purification methods and spectroscopy, particularly high field NMR, and close collaboration with biochemists. Particularly of interest is the development of natural product lead compounds as clinically useful chemotherapeutic agents.
