Research Interests

Synthesis of bioactive compounds: The design, synthesis and evaluation of bioactive molecules, including natural products is being undertaken  and compounds are evaluated through collaboration.  Successes have recently included stereoselective synthesis of iminosugars, identification of compounds that bind to G-protein coupled receptors and synthesis of analogues of migrastatin which inhibit tumour cell migration.

Anomerisation, glycoside and glycomimetic
synthesis  We are interested in the study and development of anomerisation reactions with a view to synthesis of important carbohydrates such as glycolipids, oligosaccharides and glycomimetics.  Successes in this area include glycolipid and glycomimetic synthesis and more recently disaccharides and glycosides of migrastatin analogues by anomerisation.  Useful building blocks have been prepared.  In addition we are interested in gaining insights into the factors which influence reactivity to anomerisation.

Design and synthesis of spatially defined glycoclusters The presentation of carbohydrates on cell surfaces is implicated in many important biological processes such as inflammation, infection and tumour growth and metastasis.  We are working on the design and synthesis of carbohydrates that have well defined spatial properties for study of the relevance of this property in biological systems.  Recent successes include the identification of potent inhibitors of macrophage galactose C-type lectin and galectins, with these targets being important in infection, fibrosis and cancer.
