Identifying novel compounds or improving bioavailability of drugs requires extensive screening, in vitro and in vivo testing and subsequent commercialisation. Traditional methods can be labour intensive and time-consuming. Use of modern technologies can reduce these challenges and is best achieved through collaboration with researchers specialising in different research fields. The range of research activities carried out in our lab is outlined and demonstrates the diversity of techniques used in our drug discovery programme.
