Our research covers a range of areas from drug discovery, to pharmacogenetics (of both drugs and natural products), to taste-related research. We work on a range of human diseases including epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and Alzheimer's disease, including both basic research and drug discovery. We also focus on a range of 3Rs initiatives, replacing animals as the first-choice model for research in biomedical sciences. Many of these projects are based in a simple non-animal model, the social amoeba Dictyostelium. We have funding broadly from industry, but also Research Council and charity sources.
