Investigation of the critical roles of platelets at the interface between thrombosis and inflammation in order to develop improved therapeutic strategies for the treatment and/or prevention of cardiovascular/inflammatory diseases

"Platelets (small circulating blood cells) are involved in blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding, however, their inappropriate activation under pathological conditions leads to thrombosis resulting in major cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke. Read more

Ion channel regulation in models of neurodegeneration

Ion channels are important regulators of cellular physiology. There is now growing awareness that these proteins are invovled in pathological states, with relation to neurodegeneration voltage-gated potassium and voltage-gated calicum channels have been implicated. Read more

Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells. Read more

Microneedle devices for transdermal drug delivery and disease detection

The skin is a very effective barrier against substance exchange between our body and the external environment. This is necessary to ward off the invasion of pathogens but presents a significant challenge where effective drug absorption across the skin, or extraction of biological samples from the skin, is desired.

Mitigation of human drug-induced proarrythmia and cardiotoxicity of oncology therapeutics

Cardiotoxicity is a major complication of many anticancer therapies, impacting the quality of life and overall survival of the patient, manifesting as both an acute toxicity (days/weeks) and frequently a chronic toxicity occurring months/years after conclusion of therapy. Read more

Novel design and formulation strategies to enhance drug delivery

The main research activities of my research group concern the improvement of traditional drug formulation and development of novel drug and formulation strategies to enhance bioavailability and patient acceptability. Read more

Property based design of mitochondria targeted molecules

Applications are invited from Graduates in Chemistry, Pharmacy and Medicinal Chemistry Master’s level programs to join our group within the Faculty of Medical Sciences looking at novel approaches to the design of the next generation of mitochondria targeted therapeutic agents. Read more

Property based design of resistance proofed anti-bacterial agents

Applications are invited from Graduates in Chemistry, Pharmacy and Medicinal Chemistry Master’s level programs to join our group within the Faculty of Medical Sciences looking at novel approaches to the design of the next generation of anti-bacterial therapeutic agents. Read more

The development of therapeutic peptides for cancer.

Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in women and the third in men. There were 1.8 million new diagnoses in 2018. There is a huge demand to improve conventional therapies and to discover novel ones. Read more
