Our laboratory conducts research on the edge of chemistry and biology using the latest techniques and developing new ones for the study of biological systems. We collaborate extensively with biologists in academia and industry.

Some of the lab’s current research projects are shown below.

Multiple sclerosis (MS)

  • Learn about our new prototype MS drug.
  • Neuroprotection, using sodium channel blockers to maintain nerve function in MS.

New cancer agents

  • SMoCs, Small Molecule Carriers of biomolecules.
  • FLIP protein as a cancer target.
  • Angiogenesis as a cancer target.

Cardiovascular

  • Design of novel non-peptide agonists for NPR-C.
  • Mitochondrial targeting of therapeutic agents - cyclosporin.
