Our laboratory is part of the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Queensland and the Center for Physiology and Pharmacology at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria. 

Our main research interests are:

  • Chemical Pharmacology and Drug Discovery
    • Immunosuppressive cyclic peptides: in vitro signalling und preclinical applications
    • Protein-protein interaction of transmembrane
    • Bioactive peptides from nature: isolation, analysis and pharmacological activity
    • Neuropeptides from invertebrates: ligand-receptor interactions and evolution, functional characterisation, modulation of human receptors
  • Peptidomics
    • Discovery and characterization of nature-derived peptides nature using mass spectrometry
