Overview

My PhD and postdoctoral research has been focusing on the assessment of novel pharmaceuticals for their wound healing potential and determining their mechanism of action. This has resulted in my research group being co-Inventors on numerous patents for these novel epoxy-tigliane pharmaceuticals, with our industrial partner (QBiotics Group).
