Research Summary
Our research targets the synthesis of complex biologically active molecules which can then be used as probes to target biological function. Current targets have potency as RNA polymerase inhibitors, antibiotics and cytotoxins. We generally need to develop new methodology to carry out our syntheses, and this has led us into a variety of areas including metal carbenes, carbohydrate chemistry and photochemistry.
