We are architects of the molecular world. We use organic chemistry and synthetic biology to control the shape and assembly of the molecules of life - peptides and proteins - to design new medicines, materials, and catalysts.
We are based in the School of Chemistry. We collaborate widely with research groups locally and internationally. Our group is associated with the Sydney Nano Institute, the Drug Discovery Initiative, the ARC Centre of Excellence in Peptide and Protein Science, and the ARC Centre of Excellence in Synthetic Biology.
Two primary areas of research in the lab currently are:
