Chemical biology and medicinal chemistry applied to bacterial infections, cancer biology, amyloidosis and bioimaging. Specifically, the design and development of unique chemical tools (small molecules and peptides) to address the molecular understanding of Gram-positive bacterial pathogenesis and quorum sensing [Chan, W.C., Coyle, B.J. and Williams, P. (2004) J. Med. Chem., 47, 4633], bacteria-host cross-talk [Qazi, S.N.A., Counil, E., Morrissey, J., Rees, C.E.D., Cockayne, A., Winzer, K., Chan, W.C., Williams, P. and Hill, P.J. (2001) Infect. Immun., 69, 7074], eukaryotic cell cycle machinery [Atkinson, G.E., Cowan, A., McInnes, C., Zheleva, D.I., Fischer, P.M. and Chan, W.C. (2002) Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett., 12, 2501] and amyloid diseases.
