Taking a drug from the discovery phase through to the marketplace requires a substantial investment. Students with a keen interest in drug discovery should contact Professor Kassiou to discuss undertaking future study within the group. Our group is focused on drug design and development, especially lead identification and lead optimisation. Areas of research within our groups including, synthetic and medicinal chemistry, in vitro drug screening, and behavioural pharmacology in animal models of human CNS disease states.

Our students are encouraged to be active within the international scientific community, and are given the opportunity to attend national and international conferences and collaborate with research groups both in Australia and abroad.
