To study the involvement of mitochondria in human disease and the development of drugs that counteract mitochondrial dysfunction.
The P-NPNT research area falls under the broad discipline of chemical biology. There is a strong focus on molecular pharmacology, pharmaceutics and application of a variety of high-end bioanalytical techniques such as LC-MS/MS, GC-MS/MS, nanoflow proteomics, NMR, and IR and Raman Spectroscopy.
Miniaturisation enables the fabrication of faster and smaller analytical instrumentation, enabling high quality analytical measurements to be made outside laboratory settings, for example enabling process or therapeutic drug monitoring. It also enables control and manipulation of cell growth, enabling the development of new assays.
This research theme studies the pharmacology of the three classical opioid receptors and/or related GPCRs, their function and their role in the pathophysiology of the CNS. Its overall objective is to enhance the discovery of novel opioid drugs for the treatment of chronic neuronal diseases.
Chemical ecology is the study of chemical interactions between individual organisms, focusing on signalling chemicals, such as pheromones, and defensive chemicals, especially the plant secondary metabolites which deter herbivory.
