With increased longevity comes the challenge of providing effective treatments for the various illnesses and diseases that people will experience during their lifetime. The ability to provide a quick and accurate diagnosis, as well as having therapeutics and strategies to treat and prevent illness, are essential. At the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, we have a number of globally recognized academics conducting cutting-edge research to meet these challenges - see below for key examples of how our academics are working towards making the world a healthier place.
The Healthcare theme boasts a broad range of research expertise, with publications in areas including molecular modelling for drug discovery, novel sensors for detection of disease, the synthesis and discovery of novel therapeutics and novel strategies for the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients.
Our academic Theme Leads coordinate our activity within the theme, assisting our research teams to work together, collaborate, and enhance the value and quality of our research.
