Research overview

Our research programme is focused with the synthesis of rare bioactive natural products and designed structural analogues. We are actively engaged in ventures involving the synthesis of unique bioactive natural products and probing such complex molecular architectures as a source of molecular diversity for drug discovery, primarily in the area of infectious Neglected Tropical Diseases. Alongside these ventures we utilize the ability to make molecules to answer biological problems and are involved in a number multidisciplinary programmes at the interface of Chemistry and Biology, this includes current projects  on understanding Gram-positive bacterial infection mechanisms, plant pathogen resistance mechanisms and harnessing biocatalytic methods for sustainable production of high value metabolites.
