Students studying at all levels have an opportunity to get involved in our research work.
We have three research groups:
1. Medicines Research Group - working to develop new medicines and treatments
The Medicines Research Group offers multidisciplinary research expertise in drug discovery and development, chemistry, phytochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, microbiology and biopharmaceuticals. The group has developed strong collaborative links with many universities and research institutes within the UK and also internationally in China, India, Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria and Ghana. In collaboration with our partners, we regularly host research meetings and symposiums and also have organised several international research workshops.
2. Infections and Immunity Group
This research tries to model and predict new drugs using bio-informatics. We use computers to process and study biological data to help predict what a new drug structure would look like before making it.
We often carry out research in collaboration with other leading research universities in London, including University College London and King's College London as well as overseas institutions. Our Phyto-Pharmaceutical scientists have close links with researchers at Kew.
