We are a team of multidisciplinary experts in Fragment-Based Design. Our research is underpinned by four research themes:
Fragment Library Design
Developing libraries of chemical fragments to cover chemical space and potentially uncover new and valuable bioactive molecules.
Optimising biophysical screening methods (NMR, MS) and fragment hit ranking strategies to identify compounds that bind to a target protein & accelerate lead development.
Protein Expression & Sample Preparation
Developing new approaches to sample preparation and screening to enable FBD for larger, more complex and membrane-bound proteins.
Developing and optimising systematic approaches to selecting suitable fragments for development and enhancement into potent leads (REFiL).
