I have a keen interest in using host defence molecules as the basis for designing drugs to combat disease, including cancer, microbial infections such as meliodosis, and parasitic infections such as malaria. Zooming in to investigate molecular interactions at the cell surface and inside infected cells, allows me to describe the mode of action of drug candidates and work towards improving their activity.
