Research

Al-Rawi - Heterocyclic compounds as DNA-PK, PI3K and PDE3 inhibitors for treatment of cancer

Our group studies the synthesis of novel heterocyclic compounds such as DNA-PK, PI3K and PDE3 inhibitors for more effective treatment of cancer.

Angove - Colloid, environmental and pharmaceutical science

Our group use colloid chemistry to research environmental and agricultural soil systems. We also study pharmaceutical products that utilise colloidal particles and systems.

Green - Clinical anatomy: function and rehabilitation of stabilizing muscles

Our group have pioneered techniques to insert intramuscular electrodes into muscles at the hip and shoulder to understand the role of these muscles in the human body.

Irving – Inflammation

Our group studies the molecular interactions in signal transduction networks regulating inflammation.

Kettle - Autonomic and central nervous system regulation of metabolism

Our group examines the neurobiology and neurochemistry that underlies the physiology of metabolism.

Tucci - Bacteriophage as alternatives to antibiotics, pharmacogenomics and pharmacy practice

Our group studies the use of bacteriophage as alternatives to antibiotics. We also examine the personalization of medicine to fit a patient’s genetic profile, and patient management of medication in the treatment of chronic disease.

Whelan - Biophysics, DNA damage, fluorescence, single molecule imaging

Our group develops and applies advanced fluorescence imaging techniques to visualize cells at the single molecule and nano-scale. In particular, we are working to understand DNA damage and repair.
