Chemistry of Medicines

Dr Colin Jackson’s research interests lie at the interface between biology, chemistry and physics and are directed towards gaining an understanding of the fundamental chemistry that underlies biological function. He is also interested in applied science and using chemical techniques to manipulate biological systems, i.e. the design of small molecules (drugs) that change the function of biological molecules.
