Medicinal & Natural Systems Chemistry

Our research uses organic synthesis techniques to create molecules for application in medicinal chemistry and plant sciences. We aim to use small molecule organic chemistry to treat disorders of the central nervous system such as neuroinflammation, Alzheimer’s disease and social disfunction. We also examine the interplay that exists between naturally occurring chemicals and the behaviour they produce in the natural systems we explore. We have a strong focus on both commercialisation and publishing results in (high impact) peer-reviewed journals.
