Robert B Smith
I am Principal Lecturer in Organic Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and is group leader for the Organic Medicinal Research Group.
My main research focus is in the area of synthetic medicinal chemistry with much of the research focused towards the development of dyes and probes towards healthcare applications. I am also interested in designing new antimicrobials which is focused around small molecule design. Another area which interests me is the chemistry of ascorbic acid and utilising its amazing properties to generate new medicinally active compounds.
