Our research covers a range of medicinal chemistry areas focused on the design and synthesis of anticancer, antibacterial and antiviral drugs. More recently we have also initiated a medicinal chemistry programme in the area of rare diseases including congenital glycosylation disorders and mitocondrial DNA depletion syndrome. We are also investigation the development of small molecule against lysosomal storage disorders such as Nieman Pick disease and mucopolysaccharidosis type II.
