Research within the Therapeutic Targeting area can be grouped under two main headings, Physicochemical and Biological Sciences.

Research applies physico-chemical principles, experimental and analytical techniques to:

  • generate sophisticated drug designs
  • expedite the discovery of new therapeutic molecules from synthetic and natural resources
  • improve drug delivery to specific sites at tissue and cellular level and
  • enhance speed, sensitivity and reliability of chemical analysis

Group members offer an impressive knowledge and skills base in:

  • medicinal chemistry
  • synthetic organic chemistry
  • biochemistry
  • medicines formulation and
  • physicochemical analysis

Research applies to the study of biological pathways and mechanisms important in drug target identification and validation.

Group members have expertise and interest in a variety of areas including:

  • Pharmacology
  • Cellular signalling
  • High throughput screening
  • Pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Vision
  • Vascular Biology
  • Cancer
