Solving pharmaceutical challenges in Ageing and Global Health.
We are a multidisciplinary research team with expertise in pharmaceutical science, clinical pharmacy, regulatory, green biotechnology and nanofabrication. Find out more about our mission statement here.
The core pillars of our research are Ageing and Global Health. People worldwide are living longer. Today, for the first time in history, most people can expect to live into their sixties and beyond. By 2050, the world’s population aged 60 years and older is expected to total 2 billion, up from 900 million in 2015. In addition, the world is facing multiple health challenges. These range from outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and diphtheria, increasing reports of drug-resistant pathogens and challenges with non-communicable diseases such as mental health issues.
Our ambitious research mission and vision aims to touch 1 million lives through work we create, curate and commercialise. We will achieve this by working in synergistic and multidisciplinary partnerships to achieve research impact and innovation, contributing positively to healthcare outcomes in the areas of Ageing and Global Health.
