Theme Leader

Hong - Fluorescent probes, cell imaging, protein misfolding and neurodegenerative diseases

Our group develops organic luminescent molecules as probes and imaging tools for understanding fundamental biological processes associated with ageing and disease.


Abbott - Medicinal chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry

Our group use synthetic organic chemistry to make novel compounds for treatment and prevention of disease.

Abrahams - Supramolecular chemistry and characterisation of small molecules

I am interested in the design, synthesis and characterization of supramolecular systems.

Barnard - Synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry

Our group specializes in small molecule organic and inorganic synthesis for the generation and characterization of new compounds.

Dutton - Organic, organometallic and theoretical chemistry

Our group examines the fundamental chemistry of a wide variety of systems (literally spanning the periodic table from beryllium to iodine) using both synthetic and computational approaches.

Hogarth – Vitamin A regulation of male reproduction

Our group uses biochemical- and cell biology-based techniques to investigate how vitamin A controls the development and maturation of sperm.

Smith - Modeling molecular interactions

Our group use quantum-mechanical methods to understand enzyme mechanism, molecular mechanical methods to explore the dynamics of proteins, and a variety of tools to predict how molecules interact.

Soares da Costa – Antibiotic and herbicide discovery

Our group focuses on the development and characterisation of novel classes of antibiotics and herbicides to minimise the emergence of resistance.

Wilson - Computational chemistry and quantum chemistry

Our group carries out research with the use of state-of-the-art computational quantum chemistry methods; using computers to solve chemical and biochemical problems.

Winkler - Probing materials-biology interactions using AI and machine learning

Our group uses computational chemistry, AI, machine learning and evolutionary methods to design new molecules and materials for medical, aerospace, and energy applications.
