Welcome to our website!
Our research is based in the field of medicinal chemistry including drug design, organic synthesis, peptide/protein biochemistry and biophysics, and nanotechnology. Current projects are focused on discovering novel small molecule drugs for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, and developing nanoparticles as anti-viral drugs and colonic drug delivery systems.
We are located within the School of Pharmacy at the Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE) on the PA Hospital site of The University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia. PACE is a state-of-the-art facility just a short trip from the UQ St Lucia campus via the Eleanor Schonell Bridge.
