Our research explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms and focuses on processes happening at a molecular level.

Biochemistry is technically diverse, incorporating cell biology, structural biology, chemistry, enzymology, physiology and genetics. In these overlapping areas of expertise, biochemistry flourishes allowing for the application of multiple techniques to answer important questions.

Some of the areas we study include cell signalling in diabetes and cancer, the interaction of pathogens and their hosts, how enzymes catalyse reactions and the application of peptide, organic and inorganic chemistry to antimicrobials and cancer therapy.
