Dr Tim Paget, Department of Chemistry
My current research covers two major areas 1) the biochemistry/ protein chemistry associated with pathogenicty of a range of protozoan parasites and 2) the identification of novel approaches/drugs for the treatment of infection.
I work on two major pathogens Giardia and Leishmania. Our work on Leishmania was recently highlighted by the BBC.
