Biographical details

Samuel Banister is a Team Leader in Medicinal Chemistry with The Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics, at the Brain and Mind Centre, The University of Sydney. His research is centred on the use of natural product scaffolds for the development of new drugs for epilepsy, neuropathic pain, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and schizophrenia. His interest in understanding and treating diseases of the brain led him to pursue postdoctoral training in radiochemistry, positron emission tomography (PET) imaging, and translational medicine at Stanford University.

Samuel also studies the chemistry, pharmacology, and toxicology of emerging designer drugs--formally known as new psychoactive substances (NPS). He is a cofounder of the Psychoactive Surveillance Consortium and Analysis Network (PSCAN) directed by Professor Roy Gerona at UCSF, and consults to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and government laboratories in Australia and New Zealand.

Samuel is an ad hoc reviewer for multiple medicinal chemistry and molecular imaging journals, sits on the editorial advisory board of Drug Testing and Analysis, and is an enthusiastic science communicator.
