Anti-cancer Protides


The project will centre on the design, synthesis and evaluation of  some phosphoramidate prodrugs, ProTides, of anti-cancer interest.

Aims of Project

Compounds will be designed and synthesised in the School of pharmacy  and evaluated for anti-cancer action by colleagues at Tenovus, the  School of Medicine, and other labs outside Cardiff. 

Pancreatic cancer  is the early focus, but will will test compounds against a range of  solid tumours and leukaemias.
